Seeing and Believing: Henry James and the Spiritual World

by H. Hutchison
 
This study looks at Henry James's response to the collapse of religious belief in the nineteenth century in his late novels and shorter works. Hutchison's work argues that James's fascination with perception and consciousness should be read in the context of his desire to dramatize a level of human experience beyond the material.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Hutchison places Henry James in the context of the religious conflicts and theological debates that surrounded Darwin and the intellectual awakening in nineteenth century England. This is a long-overdue look at James in these terms." Marilyn Gaull, New York University
