About the Author

Henry James (1843–1916) was an esteemed American-born writer, celebrated for his literary finesse and insight into the consciousness of his characters. Fluent in the craft of narrative fiction, James is perhaps best-known for his intricate prose and his keen perception into the social transactions of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A prolific author, he wrote a plethora of novels, short stories, and critical essays. Works such as 'The Portrait of a Lady', 'Daisy Miller', and 'The Turn of the Screw' solidify his reputation as a master of psychological realism and literary modernism. His novella 'Eugene Pickering', though lesser-known than some of his monumental pieces, exemplifies his exploration of character and social mores. James's compositions are characterized by his distinctively elaborate sentence structure, narrative technique, and thematic emphasis on consciousness and morality. In 1915, in acknowledgement of his contributions to literature and his connection to British culture, James was awarded the Order of Merit, an honor limited to distinguished figures in the arts, learning, sciences, and public service. His legacy persists in the literary canon, influencing writers and enrapturing readers with his enduring exploration of human experience.
