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. The course will include lectures on the history and form of the English and American novel, Henry James’s life and times, selected passages from James’s prefaces to the famous New York edition, and an introduction to foundational formal and theoretical concepts we will need for our exploration. James wrote for many kinds of readers: those looking for a good story, his fellow artists, and for his ideal reader—who, not surprisingly, bears an extremely close resemblance to James himself. He provides instructions for each level of reading embedded within each tale and novel, and we will learn to...
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...

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...

The era when upstart America challenged the ancient privileges of Europe is portrayed in The American, an adaptation of Henry James's darkly romantic novel. Set in 1868, the story follows the fortunes of Christopher Newman (Matthew Modine), a 19th-century "new man" who has amassed a fortune in California and heads to Europe to learn its ways and find a wife. After arriving in Paris, naïvely receptive to all its charms and mysteries, he becomes enchanted with Claire de Cintré (Aisling O'Sullivan), a young Parisian widow whose beauty and enigmatic background ignite obsessive desire in the handsome American. But his overtures are discouraged in no uncertain terms by Claire's imperious mother, Madame de Bellegarde (Emmy award winner Diana Rigg), a descendant of ancient nobility who stops at ...

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. He tried to read it over for inclusion in the New York Edition of his fiction (1907-1909) but ...
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‘.

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’ab...
