The Complete Letters of Henry James, 1883-1884 Reviews

Reading these edited letters is a delight. The transcriptions allow one to read fluidly rather than haltingly, preserving the rhythm and tone of the original communications together with their content. The explanatory notes do a superb job of contextualizing the letters and identifying references and allusions within them. I could not help but admire the astonishing discernment and scholarship manifested in this volume.-Sarah Wadsworth, professor of English at Marquette University
