Über den Autor

Henry James (1843–1916) was an American-born British writer, renowned for his novels, short stories, and literary criticism that exemplify the transition from 19th-century realism to 20th-century modernism. A master of the psychological novel, James's works often explore consciousness, perception, and interpersonal relationships, often with an international or transatlantic focus. James's narrative style is characterized by his use of interior monologues and complex, often ambiguous, moral scenarios that challenge readers' assumptions.

Best known for his pivotal novels 'The Portrait of a Lady', 'The Wings of the Dove', 'The Golden Bowl', and 'The Ambassadors', James demonstrated an extraordinary ability to delve into the psyche of his characters and the subtleties of social positions and moral dilemmas. Although 'Poor Richard' is lesser-known compared to his major works, it still showcases James's skill in crafting nuanced character studies and exploring the social dynamics of his time. His contribution to literature earned him a nomination for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912, and 1916, solidifying his legacy as a significant figure in the development of 20th-century narrative technique and literary criticism.
