Henry James( )
Author: Jolly, Roslyn
Series title:Oxford English Monographs
Publication Date:Nov 1993
Publisher:Oxford University Press

List Price:AUD $165.41
Book Description:

This is a study of Henry James's changing attitudes to history as a narrative model, moving from his early interest in `scientific' historiography to the radical, anti-historical character of his late works. These shifts can only be understood, the author argues, in terms of James's views on literary censorship and the politics of reading, and his engagement with the reading practices of marginalized groups: women, the working class, other cultures, and theavant-garde.
