Henry James
Edited by Adrian Poole

Oxford World's Classics

  • Focuses on one of James's great themes, the figure of the artist and the attempted exploitation of the man behind the artist.
  • Introduction by distinguished James scholar Adrian Poole explores the central theme of all four stories and their literary contexts.
  • Reproduces the definitive New York Edition text and includes relevant extracts from James's Prefaces and Notebooks in which the origins and development of the stories are described.
  • Appendix on stage and screen versions of "The Aspern Papers".
  • Appendix of variant readings and informative notes.

  • New selection of stories to accompany "The Aspern Papers": previously 'The Private Life', 'The Middle Years', and 'The Death of the Lion'; now 'The Death of the Lion', "The Figure in the Carpet", and "The Birthplace", all concerned with the pursuit of the man behind the artist.
  • New Introduction, new select bibliography, and new and revised notes.
