Henry James - Complete Stories, 1898 to 1910

product image
Including tales of terror and the supernatural, humor, and suprising twists, Henry James's world-famous short stories are his most popular works. Now, for the first time in thirty years, the master's complete stories are again available in a handsome and authoritative collector's edition, to be published in five volumes. The 31 stories in "Complete Stories 1898-1910" are the culmination of James's glorious final period. Among them are the extrordinary fantasies "The Great Good Place" and "The Jolly Corner, " where haunting hints of the supernatural express undercurrents of yearning and dislocation; "Crapy Cornelia, " whose themes of the compelling power of nostalgic memory owes much to James's 1904 return visit to New York City; "The Birthplace, " a comic tale about the commercialization of genius which has lost none of its satiric edge; "The Tree of Knowledge, " a sly dissection of the family life of a pampered sculptor; and "The Beat in the Jungle, " a masterpiece, the harrowing account of a man's confrontation with lost opportunities. Companion volume covers the years 1892 to 1898.
