With a mind that took in every nuance of speech, manner, thought, and half-thought, Henry James set out to define the restless - and sometimes innocent - American imagination in conflict with the great European tradition. Along the way he discovered the countless hesitancies, betrayals, and self-betrayals that make up the true substance of human relationships. This entirely new Portable Henry James provides seven major tales - among them »Daisy Miller«, »The Turn of the Screw«, »The Beast in the Jungle«, and »The Jolly Corner« - as well as travel writing, correspondence, literary criticism, autobiography, and passages from longer novels. Also included are parodies by contemporaries, and tributes by W. H. Auden, Joseph Conrad, Graham Greene, Edith Wharton, and Virginia Woolf.
