Description

Throughout his life, Henry James was drawn to the short story form for the freedom and variety it offered. The nineteen stories in this selection span James's career, from brief tales to longer works, all exploring his concerns with the old world and the new, money, fame and art. Daisy Miller', the work that first brought him fame, depicts a bold, unsophisticated American girl abroad, and In the Cage' portrays a young telegraphist's romantic fantasies about customers who send telegrams from her post office. In The Birthplace' a Stratford tour guide embellishes the Shakespeare legend, while in the late masterpiece The Jolly Corner', an elderly American returns from Europe and encounters a strange apparition. Haunting, witty and beautifully drawn, James's tales are as complex and resonant as his novels.
