The Lesson of the Master by Henry James Jr.

Young author Paul Overt arrives at a country house weekend summer party hoping to meet the celebrated writer Henry St George. He is slightly shocked by his wife Mrs St George, who announces that she once made her husband burn a 'bad' book. Overt believes he can recognise literary and artistic 'types', and is surprised that St George looks so conventional. St George has also not written anything of merit for quite some time.
