Book Cover
A Companion to Henry James

Written by some of the best-known and distinguished Henry James scholars, this innovative resource provides the most up-to-date scholarship on James's writings available today. Read together, the chapters of this Companion map the direction of contemporary James studies. Taken separately, this Companion offers a concise, cutting edge reference to the most extensively studied writing and critiques in the field.

The Companion is organized into two sections. The first part presents James's most frequently read fiction and non-fiction. Chapters in the second section outline current approaches to the reading and teaching of James's writings. Additionally, special attention is given to understanding James in national contexts — American, English, French, and Italian — and to understanding his work in terms of the cultures which informed his life and writing.
