Henry James was an intensely visual writer - in his notebooks he recorded the observation that "the scenic method is my absolute, my imperative, my only salvation." This concise illustrated biography of the master opens new doors to James's readers and students of his work by showing the vast scope of the master's visual imagination. The images collected in this book, some previously unpublished, depict the members of his illustrious and accomplished family; artwork that influenced him; as well as the friends and acquaintances who formed the inspiration for James's unforgettable protagonists and the places in Boston, London, and Venice that formed the settings for his novels.A uniquely readable visual biography, Henry James brings the world of American literature's most revered writer into sharper focus than ever before.show more
