The Reception of Henry James’s Letters throughout the 20th Century  [cached]
E-rea : Revue électronique d’études sur le Monde Anglophone , 2005, DOI: 10.4000/erea.560
Abstract: My sole wish is to frustrate as utterly as possible the post-mortem exploiter — which, I know, is most imperfectly possible. Still, one can do something, and I have long thought of launching, by a provision in my will, a curse not less explicit than Shakespeare’s own on any such as try to move my bones. Your question determines me definitely to advert the matter in my will — that is to declare my utter and absolute abhorrence of any attempted biography or the giving to the world by “the famil...
A Theory of Realistic Representation in Henry James
Ali Taghizadeh
Studies in Literature and Language , 2012, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320120503.1195
Abstract: A dimension of the later style of the fiction of Henry James is its deep concern not with selves and identities but with images and appearances. These works typically picture the character in in-between situations where he is recognized not as he really is but as he shows himself, as he appears in projected situations. However, another aspect of James’s later style is the magnificence of the appearance, because appearance is the outcome of reciprocal spaces which in turn signify vivified and productive relations among the agents of the narrative. These facades of James’s later style render it a space for a new mode of realistic representation which depends on a new kind of verisimilitude, the story in the service of language, and consciousness dramatization. And the watershed of the Jamesian verisimilitude is the work of successive centers of consciousness from where the tale is narrated. In addition, to show the deepest layers of the human soul, Jamess narrator can occasionally go beyond the frontiers of language and take use of the non-verbal structures of culture also. This mode of fiction mainly wants to exhibit the consciousness in the process of evolution. And it shows “the real” not as what has so far been considered as real, but as what emerges in this modern analytical consciousness. Key words: James; Fiction; The real; Appearance; Representation; Consciousness; Verisimilitude

Abstract: Lyall H. Powers, in Henry James and the Naturalist Movement, dubs the period spanning from “The Art of Fiction” in 1884 to The Tragic Muse in 1890 Henry James’s “Naturalist Experiment”, and rightfully so (Powers 3). There is much evidence, in James’s own notebooks, that The Bostonians was influenced by Daudet’s L’évangeliste, The Princess Casamassima by Turgeneff’s Virgin Soil, and The Tragic Muse by the narrative techniques of Maupassant (NB 47, Powers 91, NB 92), and Powers effectively show...

Abstract: O presente trabalho pretende analisar o conto “O último dos Valerii” do escritor norte-americano Henry James através de uma abordagem de cunho psicanalítico. Sendo assim, utilizando-se das obras teóricas de Sigmund Freud, em especial o seu artigo “O Estranho” e sua obra “Moisés e a Religi o Monoteísta”, busca-se apontar justamente os elementos fantasmagóricos e neuróticos presentes no conto de James.

Maria Pirgerou
European Journal of American Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/ejas.9710
Abstract: This book is a compilation of essays researching Henry James’s ghostly tales. As both editors state in their introduction to the volume, the book actually aims not only at dealing with the ghostly in terms of its supernatural element but also at scrutinizing it as a narrative technique, a strategy which endowed James’s oeuvre with a realistic, proto-modernist quality “giving it the elusiveness it is so much celebrated for” (1). Both editors also point out that James’s concern with the supern...

Gutman, Guilherme;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2005000100006
Abstract: the henry james's short story the turn of the screw was object of full criticism activity. along nearly a century, two major interpretative groups become an obligatory reference. one of the groups, composed of reports, papers and books, inserts jame's short story in the fantastic narrative line; the second interpretative group is caracterized by psychological emphasis, suggesting that the turn of the screw isn't a ghost story, but a study in ficction of psychical suffer. in that line of discussions, the author looks to introduce a third way of interpretation well-grounded by some technical elements of william james's works, brother of henry.

Transatlantica : Revue d'études Américaines , 2006,
Abstract: Conformément aux développements récents de la critique jamesiennne, qui s’efforce de réconcilier formalisme et historicisme, Meissner redécouvre ce qu’il est convenu d’appeler la dimension politique de l’oeuvre de James et insiste sur la fonction civique du récit de fiction telle que l’envisageait le romancier lui-même en définissant the civic use of imagination (voir la préface à The Lesson of the Master ). Meissner procède à une analyse textuelle approfondie de trois romans r...
