Book Description Penguin Classics, 2003. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 'He is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare in the history of poetry.'- Graham GreeneWith a mind that tool in every nuance of speech, manner, thought, and half-thought, Henry James set out to define the restless-and sometimes innocent-American imagination in conflict with the great European tradition. Along the way he discovered the countless hesitancies, betrayals, and self-betrayals that make up the true substance of human relationships. The entirely new Portable Henry James provides seven major tales-among them 'Daisy Miller,' 'The Turn of the Screw,' 'The Beast in the Jungle,' and 'The Jolly Corner'-as well as travel writing, correspondence, literary criticism, autobiography, passages from longer novels, and a sampling of authorial revisions. Also included are parodies by contemporaries, and tributes by W.H. Auden, Joseph Conrad, T. S. Eliot, Graham Greene, Ezra Pound, Edith Wharton, and Virginia Woolf.
