Description:

To read a story by Henry James is to enter a  world--a rich, perfectly crafted domain of vivid  language and splendid, complex characters. Devious  children, sparring lovers, capricious American girls,  obtuse bachelors, sibylline spinsters and charming  Europeans populate these five fascinating  Nouvelles --works which represent the  author in both his early and late phases. From the  apparitions of evil that haunt the governess in  The Turn Of The Screw to the  startling self-scrutiny of an egotistical man in  The Beast In The Jungle, the mysterious  tumings of human behavior are skillfully and  coolly observed--proving Henry James to be a master of  psychological insight as well as one of the finest  stylists of modern English literature.
