[ED: Hardcover / gebunden], [PU: Library of America], Nearly thirty years in the making, The Library of America's eleven-volume edition of the complete fiction of Henry James now culminates with this authoritative volume collecting his final three finished works. Considered by James to be his most finely constructed novel, The Ambassadors (1903) recounts the attempts of a conscientious American to convince the son of a friend to return home from Paris-and in doing so plays the charm of the Old World against the provincialism of the New. In The Golden Bowl (1904), an American woman marries an Italian prince while her father unknowingly marries the prince's former mistress James underscores both the fragility and strength of human ties and further develops what he once called the "complex fate, being an American." Originally written for the stage but never produced, James reworked The Outcry (1911) into a highly successful comic novel of social manners that also deals with the ethics of art collecting. Included as an appendix is "The Married Son," the chapter James contributed to The Whole Family (1908), a multi-author novel conceived by William Dean Howells and portraying a dysfunctional family whose struggles mirror the frustrated collaborative efforts of the book's twelve contributors.

Henry James: Novels 1903-1911: The Ambassadors / The Golden Bowl / The Outcry - new book

ISBN: 9781598530919

ID: 9781598530919

This volume, the sixth and final in The Library of America's edition of the complete novels of Henry James, brings together two masterpieces of his extraordinary late period---The Ambassadors (1903) and The Golden Bowl (1904)---as well as his last extended narrative work, The Outcry (1911), a short comic novel of social manners.The idea for The Ambassadors came from James's friend William Dean Howells, who told of having given advice to a friend in France: "You have time.

In James's novel, a conscientious American, Lambert Strether, travels to Paris to convince Chad Newsome, the son of a friend, to return home and take charge of family business matters. Strether finds Newsome significantly altered---mature and sophisticated, and with a mistress. Strether himself eventually succumbs to the charms of the Old World and gives up his mission. Although others arrive from America to attempt to lure New-some home, only the older man recognizes the true nature of the young man's transformation.James described The Golden Bowl as "the most done of my productions---the most composed and constructed and completed." In the novel an American woman, Maggie Verver, marries an Italian prince, while her wealthy father marries Maggie's girlhood friend, Charlotte Stant---neither Verver being aware that the Prince and Charlotte have been (and possibly continue to be) lovers. Maggie's eventual discovery of the nature of that relationship provides the basis for an exploration of the fragility and strength of human ties and further develops what James once called that "complex fate, being an American." This volume prints the New York Edition texts of The Ambassadors and The Golden Bowl, which include the prefaces that James wrote for each work as well as the illustrations he commissioned from photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn.The Outcry, James's last completed novel, is a crisp and witty comedy of manners adapted from an unproduced stage pla ...
