  • NYSL: Michael Gorra on "Portrait of a Novel: Henry James and the Making of an American Masterpiece"

    Henry James has had many biographers, but Michael Gorra has taken an original approach to this great American progenitor of the modern novel, combining elements of biography, criticism, and travelogue in recreating the dramatic backstory of James's masterpiece, Portrait of a Lady (1881). Gorra, an eminent literary critic, shows how this novel - the scandalous story of the expatriate American heiress Isabel Archer - came to be written in the first place. Traveling to Florence, Rome, Paris, and England, Gorra sheds new light on James's family, the European literary circles - George Eliot, Flaubert, Turgenev - in which James made his name, and the psychological forces that enabled him to create this most memorable of female protagonists. Appealing to readers of Louis Menand's The Metaphysic...

    Washington Square by Henry James (1843-1916) http://free-audio-books.info/novel/washington-square-audiobook/ Washington Square is a short novel by Henry James. Originally published in 1880 as a serial in Cornhill Magazine and Harper's New Monthly Magazine, it is a structurally simple tragicomedy that recounts the conflict between a dull but sweet daughter and her brilliant, domineering father. The book is often compared to Jane Austen's work for the clarity and grace of its prose and its intense focus on family relationships. James was hardly a great admirer of Jane Austen, so he might not have regarded the comparison as flattering. In fact, James was not a great fan of Washington Square itself.

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 him around, and introduces him to the young widow Claire de Cintre, whose family -- the aristocratic de Bellegardes -- distrust his American brashness and commercialism. 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.

Appealing to readers of Louis Menand's The Metaphysical Club and David McCullough's The Greater Journey, Portrait of a Novel provides a brilliant account of the greatest American novel of expatriate life ever written. It becomes a piercing detective story on its own. Biographer Hermione Lee, writing in the Guardian, says, "It is a tribute to his book that he makes us feel the life, of the book and its characters and its author, so deeply. He earns the right to end with James's wonderful words, 'There is really too much to say.'" Michael Gorra teaches English at Smith College. His books include After Empire, The Bells in Their Silence, and, as editor, the Norton Critical Edition of Faulkner's As I Lay Dying.

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‘. 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.

Les Nouveaux chemins de la connaissance Émission diffusée sur France Culture le 06.12.2016. Par Adèle Van Reeth. Les personnages de littérature sont de grands penseurs, remarquait Deleuze. Quoi de plus juste, à la lecture des romans d'Henry James ? Les romans d'Henry James dont chaque personnage est un miroir, romans qui parviennent à créer des jeux de symétrie, et même à illustrer la thèse de Leibniz sur les monades. Si "la littérature d'imagination habite une maison qui n'a pas une seule fenêtre, mais des millions", Deleuze nous aide à y accéder, et c'est David Lapoujade qui nous y introduit. Le texte du jour : « Si un écrivain eut affaire avec le secret, ce fut Henry James. Il a toute une évolution à cet égard, qui est comme la perfection de son art. Car le secret, il le cherche d’abord dans des contenus, même insignifiants, entrouverts, entraperçus. Puis il évoque la possibilité d’une forme infinie du secret qui n’aurait même plus besoin de contenu et qui aurait conquis l’imperceptible. Mais il n’évoque cette possibilité que pour poser la question : le secret est-il dans le contenu, ou bien dans la forme ? – et la réponse est déjà donnée : ni l’un ni l’autre. C’est que James fait partie de ces écrivains pris dans un devenir-femme irrésistible. Il ne cessera de poursuivre son but, et d’inventer les moyens techniques nécessaires. Moléculariser le contenu du secret, linéariser la forme. James aura tout exploré, du devenir-enfant du secret (toujours un enfant qui découvre des secrets) au devenir-femme du secret (un secret par transparence, et qui n’est plus qu’une ligne pure laissant à peine la trace de son passage). […] Ce qui compte dans le secret, ce sont moins ses trois états, contenu d’enfant, forme infinie virile, pure ligne féminine, que les devenirs qui y sont attachés, le devenir-enfant du secret, son devenir-féminin, son devenir-moléculaire – là où précisément le secret n’a plus ni contenu ni forme, l’imperceptible enfin perçu, le clandestin qui n’a même plus rien à cacher. » Gilles Deleuze, Mille plateaux, Minuit, 1980, p.355-356.
