Über den Autor

Henry James (1843-1916) was an American-born British author, regarded as a key transitional figure between literary realism and literary modernism, and is considered by many to be among the greatest novelists in the English language. Born in New York City to a wealthy family, James was educated by private tutors in Europe and the United States. He published his first short story at age 21 and devoted himself to literature. A prolific writer, James authored twenty novels, more than a hundred short stories, autobiographical works, several plays, and a large number of non-fiction articles and books on various topics. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allows him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style is characterized by a rich, intricate prose, which has made his books a subject of study and analysis among critics and scholars. A notable work, 'Partial Portraits' (1888), is a collection of essays on the art of fiction and biographical sketches of 19th-century writers. James's works have been cited as precursors to the stream of consciousness technique, later employed by such authors as Joyce and Woolf. Eminent for his exploration of the consciousness of his characters, Henry James's legacy endures, and his novels, including 'The Portrait of a Lady,' 'The Ambassadors,' and 'The Wings of the Dove,' are considered classics.
