Über den Autor

Henry James (1843–1916) was an esteemed American-born writer, recognized for his novels, short stories, and criticism that intricately weave together the themes of consciousness, perception, and society. Born in New York City, James went on to spend most of his adult life in Europe, which significantly influenced his literary productions. His works frequently explore the complex interplay between the Old World and the New, often focusing on the clash of values and cultures as experienced by American expatriates in Europe.

James's literary style is notable for its pioneering use of psychological realism and interior monologues. His narrative technique, involving the point of view of a central consciousness, has placed him as a key figure in the transition between 19th-century realism and 20th-century modernism. Among his major contributions are 'The Portrait of a Lady' and 'The Wings of the Dove', reflecting his keen observation of character and social convention. His late masterworks also include 'The Golden Bowl' and the reflective novella 'The Turn of the Screw'.

The compilation 'The Complete Works' testifies to the breadth and depth of James's literary artistry, spanning over his prolific career. His enduring influence extends to writers and critics alike, and he remains a critical figure in American literature and the broader narrative of Western culture. The signature 'Henry James style', with its elaborate sentences and psychological finesse, continues to be studied and revered in the literary world.
