Overview

Henry James and the Writing of Race and Nation by Sara Blair

Mixed Performances describes a new Henry James, who, rather than being paraded as a beacon of high culture, actually expresses a nuanced understanding of and engagement with popular culture. Arguing against recent trends in critical studies which locate racial resistance in popular culture, Sara Blair uncovers this resistance within literature and high modernism. Blair makes a powerful case for reading James with a sense of sustained contradiction and her project absorbingly argues for the historical and ongoing importance of literary texts and discourses to the study of culture and cultural value.
