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.

All of Henry James’s stories set in New York are brought together for the first time in this anthology compiled by contemporary writer Colm Tóibín. Though he spent most of his life in England, James considered New York, where he lived as a child, to be his home, and its influence is present in much of his work. Together these writings reveal not only professed love for the city but also anger toward the changes to the city that James witnessed in his lifetime. One of James’s most critically acclaimed novellas, Washington Square, is included, as are some of his stories that have never before been translated into Spanish, such as “Crawford’s Consistency,” “The Impressions of a Cousin,” and “The Story of a Masterpiece.”


Todas las historias de Henry James ambientadas en Nueva York se recopilan por primera vez en esta antología, compilada por el escritor contemporáneo Colm Tóibín. Aunque pasó la mayoría de su vida en Inglaterra, James consideraba Nueva York, dónde vivó como niño, como su hogar, y su influencia está presente en mucha de su obra. En conjunto, estos escritos revelan no sólo un amor profesado por la ciudad pero también ira hacia los cambios a la ciudad a los que James fue testigo durante su vida. Una de sus novelas más aclamadas por la crítica, Washington Square, está incluida, así como algunos de sus cuentos nunca antes traducidos al español, como “La coherencia de Crawford,” “Historia de una obra maestra” e “Impresiones de una prima.”
