Palgrave advances in Henry James studies( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this collection is to guide non-specialist and specialist readers alike through some of the dense thickets of Henry James criticism. The attempt is not only to survey past and contemporary critical and theoretical terrains, but also to anticipate future developments. Every contributor has published extensively in their areas of intervention; in all cases, therefore, these essays are part of a conversation which the writers have been involved in instigating or developing. Whereas previous anthologies have tended to adopt a textual focus for each chapter, this collection is organized around themes and issues pertinent to the way James is being approached in the new millennium. But as the essays are both accounts and demonstrations in practice of each critical or theoretical area, contributors map the issues by engaging in an angled close reading of the James texts especially salient to their argument. In this way a balance has been struck between description and demonstration, exposition and analysis, or interpretation and critical engagement. Featuring specially commissioned essays from top names in the field, Palgrave Advances in Henry James Studies will be an invaluable resource for all students, scholars and enthusiasts of James
