About the Author: Henry James

Henry James, OM, son of theologian Henry James Sr., brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American-born author, one of the founders and leaders of a school of realism in fiction. He spent much of his life in England and became a British subject shortly before his death. He is primarily known for a series of major novels in which he portrayed the encounter of America with Europe. His plots centered on personal relationships, the proper exercise of power in such relationships, and other moral questions. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allowed him to explore the phenomena of consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting.
James insisted that writers in Great Britain and America should be allowed the greatest freedom possible in presenting their view of the world, as French authors were. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and unreliable narrators in his own novels and tales brought a new depth and interest to realistic fiction, and foreshadowed the modernist work of the twentieth century. An extraordinarily productive writer, in addition to his voluminous works of fiction he published articles and books of travel writing, biography, autobiography, and criticism,and wrote plays, some of which were performed during his lifetime with moderate success. His theatrical work is thought to have profoundly influenced his later novels and tales.

Bajo la forma de un diario personal, un quincuagenario de viaje por Florencia anota los episodios de un acontecimiento extraordinario para él: acaba de conocer a la hija de la que fue su amor de juventud casi treinta años antes, y a su pretendiente, un joven inglés, e intuye en esta relación la exacta repetición de su propia historia sentimental. Historia que él había resuelto con una dolorosa ruptura, y en la analogía que ahora establece se empeña en proteger a su alter ego del peligro que lo acecha.

¿Logrará el narrador su propósito? ¿Producen las mismas causas los mismos efectos?¿Tiene sentido proyectar nuestra propia vida en la de los demás? Éstos y otros interrogantes se translucen en esta magistral pieza narrativa, mitad parábola mitad reflexión irónica sobre el destino humano. Un Henry James químicamente puro que no defraudará a sus incondicionales y que maravillará a los que todavía no se han acercado a la prosa del gran maestro de la novela moderna, quien decía que “pintar la vida de las gentes no es nada hasta que no se hayan descrito sus percepciones”.


Hasta ahora inédita en castellano, esta obra de Henry James, escrita en 1880 entre Daisy Miller y Retrato de una dama, es una deliciosa «nouvelle» que contiene todos los elementos de misterio, ambigüedad e ironía tan característicos del universo de James, que utilizaba los relatos y las novelas cortas como auténtico taller para sus novelas o aun como modelos para éstas.
