Henry James and London

The City in his Fiction


Prof. John Kimmey

This is the first full-length study of the influence of London on Henry James' fiction. It begins with a comparison of his treatment of the city with that of Dickens, Gissing, and H.G. Wells and proceeds to analyze decade by decade how he employed it in his essays on England and the British capital as well as an examination of the part the metropolis played in his life from his childhood to his last years.
