Sinopse

Welcome to the 7 Best Short Stories book series, were we present to you the best works of remarkable authors. This edition is dedicated to Virginia Woolf. Henry James was an American-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. He is best known for a number of novels dealing with the social and marital interplay between emigre Americans, English people, and continental Europeans. His later works were increasingly experimental. In describing the internal states of mind and social dynamics of his characters, James often made use of a style in which ambiguous or contradictory motives and impressions were overlaid or juxtaposed in the discussion of a character's psyche. For their unique ambiguity, as well as for other aspects of their composition, his late works have been compared to impressionist painting. This selection specially chosen by the literary critic August Nemo, contains the following stories: - The Beast ih the Jungle. - The Figure in the Carpet Paste. - The Romance of Certain Old Clothes. - The Story of a Year. - The Altar of the Dead. - Married Son.
