Henry James's Style of Retrospect

Late Personal Writings, 1890-1915

Oliver Herford

  • The first comprehensive literary-critical study of Henry James's late personal writings
  • Rethinks the meaning and import of late Jamesian "style" in the light of his retrospective non-fictional production
  • Shows the coherence and continuity of James's work in this mode, across a wide range of genres and occasions
  • Offers biographical insights on the last 25 years of James's life, assembling and newly analyzing his thoughts about aging, memory, commemoration, historical continuity, and intergenerational relationships
  • Draws on previously unpublished manuscript material and new archival, textual-critical, and bibliographical research
  • Analyzes canonical works alongside little-known occasional writings and unpublished correspondence
