  • The American by Henry James (FULL Audiobook)

    The American audiobook by Henry James (1843-1916) http://free-audio-books.info/novel/the-american-audiobook/ One of James's early novels, The American plunges right in to one of the writer's most enduring subjects, that of the innocent, or at least inexperienced, American abroad, seeking to come to terms with the social customs and conventions of an old European aristocracy (think of Daisy Miller, Portrait of a Lady, The Wings of the Dove and others). The aptly named Christopher Newman, having made a small fortune from business in California, has come to the Old World for the first time, determined to enlarge his experience by learning all he can of it. In Paris he meets an old acquaintance, Tom Tristram, who (though he himself has little interest in educating himself about Europe) shows h...

  • Reading Henry James

    HSP Fall 2016 Class Promotional Presented by: Associate Professor Lynda Zwinger In this class we will begin to see for ourselves what James contributed to the art to which he devoted his entire life.

  • Anne Diebel: Henry James and The Yellow Book in the 1890s

    Anne Diebel discusses Henry James's situation in the 1890s, his decision to write for The Yellow Book, the three stories he published there and the effects this had on his career. In particular, Diebel examines how the content of Henry James's stories for The Yellow Book reflected his changing attitudes to the public and his own work. Diebel also touches on the art of Aubrey Beardsley, Henry James's play 'Guy Domville', his stories 'The Death of the Lion' and 'The Next Time', and his view of the public as 'ravenous autograph-hunters, exploiters of publicity, lion-hunters, exploiters of publicity‘.

  • The Real Thing, by Henry James

    LibriVox recording of The Real Thing, by Henry James. Read by Nicholas Clifford The Real Thing is, on one level, a somewhat ironic tale of an artist and two rather particular models. Yet it also raises questions about the relationship between the notion of reality in our humdrum world, and the means that an artist must use in trying to achieve, or reflect, that reality. Though the protagonist is an artist and illustrator of books, not a writer, it's not hard to imagine that James has himself, and other writers, in mind.(summary by Nicholas Clifford)

    Daisy Miller: A Study in Two Parts by Henry James (1843-1916) http://free-audio-books.info/novella/daisy-miller-a-study-in-two-parts/ Daisy Miller is an 1878 novella by Henry James. It portrays the confused courtship of the eponymous American girl by Winterbourne, a compatriot of hers with much more sophistication. His pursuit of her is hampered by her own flirtatiousness, which is frowned upon by the other expatriates they meet in Switzerland and Italy. Her lack of understanding of the social mores of the society she so desperately wishes to enter ultimately leads to tragedy. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Claire, nonetheless, agrees to marry him, thus pulling Newman, rather more deeply than he is prepared for, into a society that closely guards its secrets, and forcing him to face new and quite unexpected questions.

Read Anne Diebel in the LRB: http://www.lrb.co.uk/contributors/anne-diebel Read the latest LRB: http://www.lrb.co.uk/ ABOUT THE LRB Since 1979, the London Review of Books has stood up for the tradition of the literary and intellectual essay in English. Each issue contains up to 15 long reviews and essays by academics, writers and journalists. There are also shorter art and film reviews, as well as poems and a lively letters page. A typical issue moves through political commentary to science or ancient history by way of literary criticism and social anthropology. So, for example, an issue can open with a piece on the rhetoric of war, move on to reassessing the reputation of Pythagoras, follow that with articles on the situation in Iraq, the 19th-century super-rich, Nabokov’s unpublished novel, how saints got to be saints, the life and work of William Empson, and an assessment of the poetry of Alice Oswald.
