The Real Thing
The Story of It
Henry James was an extraordinarily accomplished and multifaceted writer throughout his almost 50 years, turning out short stories, novels, travel books, plays and thousands of letters, all notable for their literary wisdom and adroitness.
Throughout his stories, James examined certain themes that he often revisited in his novels. Among these were the differences between Europe and the self-asserting young American republic, the complicated social machinations of the nobility, the often deleterious quality of male sexual desire, and the assuagements and perplexities of art. James understood these themes thoroughly, as he constantly traveled the Atlantic between Europe and America, and his ear was ever cognizant to the articulations surrounding him. He kept detailed and bountiful notes on all of this, frequently highlighting what he considered promising story ideas.
Few writers in the history of the English language have accomplished a fraction of what James managed in his short stories alone. If you value good prose, pitch-perfect grammar and the sophisticated play of an incredibly nimble mind, look no further than these 162 pages.
