Reseña del editor:

The complete stories of Henry James spans the creative life of the writer and includes his first twenty-four published stories, including thirteen never collected by him.

Biografía del autor:

Henry James (1843-1916), born in New York City, was the son of noted religious philosopher Henry James, Sr., and brother of eminent psychologist and philosopher William James. He spent his early life in America and studied in Geneva, London and Paris during his adolescence to gain the worldly experience so prized by his father. He lived in Newport, went briefly to Harvard Law School, and in 1864 began to contribute both criticism and tales to magazines.

In 1869, and then in 1872-74, he paid visits to Europe and began his first novel, Roderick Hudson. Late in 1875 he settled in Paris, where he met Turgenev, Flaubert, and Zola, and wrote The American (1877). In December 1876 he moved to London, where two years later he achieved international fame with Daisy Miller. Other famous works include Washington Square (1880), The Portrait of a Lady (1881), The Princess Casamassima (1886), The Aspern Papers (1888), The Turn of the Screw (1898), and three large novels of the new century, The Wings of the Dove (1902), The Ambassadors (1903) and The Golden Bowl (1904). In 1905 he revisited the United States and wrote The American Scene (1907).

During his career he also wrote many works of criticism and travel. Although old and ailing, he threw himself into war work in 1914, and in 1915, a few months before his death, he became a British subject. In 1916 King George V conferred the Order of Merit on him. He died in London in February 1916.

Briseaux (767), The Last of the Valerii (798), Madame de Mauves (828), Adina (904); Chronology (949), Note on the Texts (964), Notes (967) * This LOA volume, the 1st of 5 of Henry James' short fiction, brings together his first 24 published stories, 13 never collected by James. Encompassing a wide range of subjects, settings, & formal techniques, they show the first explorations of some of James' most significant themes: the force of social convention & the compromises it demands; the complex & often ambiguous encounter between Europe & America; the energies of passion measured against the rigors of artistic discipline. By his mid-20's, James was a regular contributor to the most prestigious & popular magazines of his era. He is equally at ease writing historical tales, such as "Gabrielle de Bergerac," a love story set in pre-Revolutionary France, as he is exploring contemporary events, as in the 3 stories that treat the effects of the American Civil War on civilians. James' psychological acuity is already evident in "Master Eustace," a study of the ruthlessness of a spoiled child, & in "Guest's Confession," where the comic portrayal of an arrogant businessman hints at his cruelty & self-absorption. In "The Romance of Certain Old Clothes," & "The Last of the Valerii," James begins to work w/ the supernatural & fantastic motifs that would continue to surface in his work. Early examples of James' lifelong fascination w/ art & artists include "A Landscape Painter," about a young painter's attraction to a seemingly simple family living in a desolate coastal town, and "The Madonna of the Future," where an aging artist avoids the unveiling of his masterpiece. Adumbrating later triumphs & compelling in their own right, these stories reveal an accomplished & cosmopolitan young talent mastering the art of the short story. * The Library of America is an award-winning, nonprofit program dedicated to publishing America's best & most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as "the most important book-publishing project in the nation's history" (Newsweek), this acclaimed series is restoring America's literary heritage in "the finest-looking, longest-lasting edition ever made" (New Republic).
