Overview

Henry James, Volume TWO by Henry James

Henry James, OM ( 1843 - 1916) was an Anglo-American writer who spent the bulk of his career in Britain. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.
James is one of the major figures of trans-Atlantic literature. His works frequently juxtapose characters from the Old World (Europe), embodying a feudal civilization that is beautiful, often corrupt, and alluring, and from the New World (United States), where people are often brash, open, and assertive and embody the virtues-freedom and a more highly evolved moral character-of the new American society. James explores this clash of personalities and cultures, in stories of personal relationships in which power is exercised well or badly.
