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...
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 ...
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)

Consciousness and perception Realism's my predilection Never married, virginal bachelor Sexuality's a moral disaster Under certain circumstances there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea. I'm on the outside looking in Expatriate exposing sin Deep experience is never peaceful American responsibility is unequal The story had held us, round the fire, sufficiently breathless, but except the obvious remark that it was gruesome, as, on Christmas Eve in an old house, a strange tale should essentially be. Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web, of the finest silken threads, suspended in the chamber of consciousness and catching every air-borne ...
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...
