Description

Henry James is a writer still critically acclaimed and best remembered nowadays for novels like What Maisie Knew and Portrait of a Lady. He was a writer who often touched on themes involving differences between the Old and New Worlds -- but even more he wrote of consciousness and morality. He's memorable of those -- and for his imaginative narrative style and unreliable narrators. Point of View takes form as a series of letters written by European characters visiting America to their counterparts in Europe. He juxtaposes the different points of view, so to speak, by using various characters' perception of the New World. The tale begins with an excited young woman named Aurora Church telling of her excitement at seeing America -- and follows with her mother's apprehension of the people there...

Author Biography

Henry James (1843 - 1916) was an American-born British writer. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James. He is best known for a number of novels showing Americans encountering Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from a character's point of view allowed him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and unreliable narrators brought a new depth to narrative fiction.
