Description

Recipient of the "Approved Edition" seal from the Modern Language Association's Committee on Scholarly Editions The Complete Letters of Henry James fills a crucial gap in modern literary studies by presenting in a scholarly edition the complete letters of one of the great novelists and letter writers of the English language. Comprising more than ten thousand letters reflecting on a remarkably wide range of topics-from James's own life and literary projects to broader questions about art, literature, and criticism-this edition is an indispensable resource for students of James and of American and English literature, culture, and criticism as well as for research libraries throughout North America and Europe and for scholars of James, the European novel, and modern literature. This volume is the second of three to include James's letters from 1872 to 1876.
