    • Abstract: In addition to the members of the Advisory Board, Brad Evans, Simone Francescato, Pamela Thurschwell, and Rosella Mamoli Zorzi have reviewed submissions for HJR in 2016–17, giving generously of their time and expertise. We express our sincere thanks to them for their contribution. What did “Henry James” come to mean in the years between his death and the commencement of World War II' A partial history of the period might note that The Ivory Tower, The Sense of the Past, and The Middle Years as well as the essay and short story collections Within the Rim, Traveling Companions, A Landscape Painter, and Master Eustace were all published posthumously, receiving mixed reviews. “Appreciations,” composed ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: 2016, the centennial of Henry James’s death, occasioned memorials of many sorts. James scholars came together in London, Waltham, and Paris to discuss how James has been remembered, his influences on—and by—the writing of others, the workings of memory and memorialization in his writing, and his shaping presence in the lives of his readers. The rich diversity of these talks, and of the lively conversations they engendered, illustrates how “commemorating” Henry James is not a matter of honoring a sealed and static past but of robust, ongoing engagement—engagement vividly exemplified by the selection of papers from those conferences that are brought together in this issue of the Henry James Review. ...

  • Henry James in the Great Tradition
    • Abstract: I propose to bring together Henry James’s commencement address called “The Question of Our Speech,” which he delivered to the graduates of Bryn Mawr College on June 8, 1905, and the James novel in which the question of the quality of speech is most explicit and most problematic, The Awkward Age. But first I should try to clarify the portentous word “tradition,” starting with a few references. In 1945 Wallace Stevens wrote a poem called “Recitation after Dinner,” later called “Tradition,” in neither form published in his lifetime. In the poem, he considers various forms that tradition might be deemed to take—such as experience, memory, or law—but in the end he settles for the Virgilian form given ... Read More

  • Jamesian Hauntology: On the Poetics of Condensation
    • Abstract: In the opening paragraph of The American Scene, James unfolds a precise lexicon, a figurative matrix, and an overarching poetic process that will shape his final literary production. At issue is not only a certain repetitive fixity of the late style’s key words, which nonetheless demonstrate a seemingly endless recombinant potential, but also, and more important, the representational ground of his subject—a “subject” that stages its encounter with modernity with remarkable discursive coherence across the dissolving generic boundaries of fiction, autobiography, and cultural criticism. My current, larger project conflates The American Scene, “The Jolly Corner,” and A Small Boy and Others—or the period between ... Read More

  • Fingers of Memory: “The Bench of Desolation”
    • Abstract: The turning point of the 1909 story “The Bench of Desolation” occurs when Kate Cookham returns to track down Herbert Dodd, sitting as she knew he would be on his favorite seafront bench, ten years after he broke off their engagement: a decision for which she made him pay dearly. The meeting involves a little textual memory on James’s part: His eyes only, at last, turned from her and resumed a little their gaze at the sea. That, however, didn’t relieve him, and he perpetrated in the course of another moment the odd desperate gesture of raising both his hands to his face and letting them, while he pressed it to them, cover and guard it. At the climax of “The Jolly Corner,” written 1906 and ... Read More

  • Henry James at Any Rate
    • Abstract: In the preface to The Princess Casamassima, James attempts to draw a lesson from the many impressions by which he was “assault[ed]” while walking the streets of London during the period of the novel’s composition: There was a moment at any rate when they offered me no image more vivid than that of some individual sensitive nature or fine mind, some small obscure intelligent creature whose education should have been almost wholly derived from them, capable of profiting by all the civilisation, all the accumulations to which they testify, yet condemned to see these things only from outside—in mere quickened consideration, mere wistfulness and envy and despair. Again, in the same preface, having ... Read More

  • Luca Ronconi: Temporality and Illusions in the Adult-Child
    • Abstract: In 2002 Luca Ronconi, one of the most influential theater directors in Italy and Europe, returned to Henry James’s works with the stage play of What Maisie Knew for the theater Il Piccolo in Milan. Before that, in 1991, Ronconi had adapted Henry James’s short story “In the Cage”1 and, in 1995, directed Benjamin Britten’s musical version of “The Turn of the Screw.” With What Maisie Knew, Ronconi dealt with one of James’s novels in its pure literary form. Ronconi devoted fifty years of his life to the theater, during which he directed a great number of plays and operas, showing a preference for literary texts or texts that are not of a typical dramatic nature.2 From 1969, when his most famous work ...

  • A Bust and a Novel: Two Sculptors’ Homages to Henry James
    • Abstract: In 2014 the Royal Academy of Arts in London commemorated the 100-year anniversary of a militant suffragette’s attack on John Singer Sargent’s portrait of Henry James by posting on its website an article by Helena Bonett, along with a photograph of the damaged painting. Whereas Bonett outlines the larger context of suffragette attacks on male art in Manchester and London in 1913 and 1914, Leon Edel echoes in his biography of the Master the account of the “Academy Outrage” on May 4, 1914, culled from the front page of the Times of the following day. An elderly woman remembered by the name of Mary Wood (though Bonett knows that the woman’s real name was Mary Aldham) brought with her to the annual Summer ... Read More

  • The (Meme) Master: James’s Afterlives in Viral Satire
    • Abstract: This article explores the many uses to which Henry James has been put by online satire, cataloging James’s apparitions in online media since 2000 to discover what it is that strikes contemporary digital writers and artists as ideal raw material for meme construction. Ultimately, I relate these cultural productions to Jack Halberstam’s “low theory,” defined as “a mode of accessibility” used by scholarship that deliberately tries “aiming low in order to hit a broader target” (16). By “meme,” I refer to viral Internet content: digital texts or images that are meant to be consumed for entertainment and passed on to other users as quickly and frequently as possible. The term originates in The Selfish Gene (1976) ... Read More

  • Henry James’s Bowing Acquaintance with Germany
    • Abstract: Henry James knew German well enough to pick for some of his minor characters names such as Silberstadt-Schreckenstein, which makes a terrifying sound, Dr. Staub, which deflates the heavy militarist thinking of its owner, or Tischbein, which is in comparison almost a compliment in the way it connotes unimaginative practicality (or anecdotal Victorian eroticism). Henry James and Germany is an old story addressed sporadically over the past four decades in diverse forms and contexts: in a book of 1979 by Evelyn A. Hovanec and in Casey Abell’s posting to James F-L on Henry James’s German Essays, dated November 27, 1998. Are we ready for a new chapter twenty to forty years later' What new insights could it bring ... Read More

  • Henry James, Winchelsea, Rye, and Thackeray’s Denis Duval
    • Abstract: My subject is a strange essay—the only one of James’s I can think of that combines so thoroughly travel writing, literary criticism, and autobiography. It seemed a fitting topic for a centenary conference, as it commemorates a writer (Thackeray) who died while still writing the novel named in its title, and because it is an exercise in memory: personal, literary, and historical. It comes close to home for James in various respects—looking back to the time when he dreamed of becoming a writer and to what may be his earliest association with Rye—and to his actual beginnings as a published novelist. Indeed, it comes to the very doorstep of his then recently acquired home at Lamb House. “Winchelsea ... Read More

  • Taking Liberties with the Past: Monuments, Memorials, and Memory
    • Abstract: In The Sense of the Past the hero, Ralph Pendrel, writes a little book called “An Essay in Aid of the Reading of History” for which he is handsomely rewarded by an unknown English cousin with the gift of an eighteenth-century house in London. His belief about how one can be in touch with the past is quoted to Ralph by Aurora Coyne at the moment that she is refusing his proposal of marriage. Ralph has written: There are particular places where things have happened, places enclosed and ordered and subject to the continuity of life mostly, that seem to put us into communication, and the spell is sometimes made to work by the imposition of hands, if it be patient enough, on an old object or an old ...

  • Remembrance of Things Present in The Ambassadors
    • Abstract: I wish to argue—perversely, perhaps—that the past is not the only locus of memory for Henry James. Especially in his late fiction, James is less concerned with recovering lost experience in the manner of his great contemporary Marcel Proust than he is with transforming the present into material for recollection and reverie. Literary theorists have often remarked the paradox that the past tense of third-person narrative represents the chronological present of its characters, enabling it to represent consciousness without the temporal gap that necessarily intervenes between a first-person narrator and the experience that he or she is recording. (The awkwardness of some of Samuel Richardson’s efforts ... Read More

  • Henry James: Écrits sur la peinture ed. by Thomas Constantinesco
           (review)
    • Abstract: As increasing interest in translations of James’s writings has been shown on the French book market in recent years with the publication of the complete edition of his short stories in the prestigious Bibliothèque de la Pléiade under the supervision of Annick Duperray and Evelyne Labbé (2003, 2011) and of Jean Pavans’s translation of The American Scene in 2008, it is worth mentioning as well the 2014 release of a collective academic project at Université Paris Diderot, supervised and edited by Thomas Constantinesco, Associate Professor in American Literature. The book, entitled Henry James: Écrits sur la peinture, offers a selection of fourteen James essays on painting hitherto unpublished in French and ... Read More

  • The War That Used up Words: American Writers and the First World War by
           Hazel Hutchison (review)
    • Abstract: In the manuscript of Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms, probably the most widely read American novel about World War I, there is an unnumbered page that was not included in the published version. It is a typed quotation from an interview Henry James gave to the New York Times in 1915, in which he lamented that the war had “used up words; they have weakened, they have deteriorated like motor car tires” (16). The ruminations of Frederick Henry, the novel’s protagonist, on how the war has made the abstract nouns of political or martial idealism obscene has often been taken as the quintessential statement of how lost generation political disillusion distilled into literary style. Yet James’s literal place in ... Read More

  • Modernism and the Reinvention of Decadence by Vincent Sherry (review)
    • Abstract: In Modernism and the Reinvention of Decadence, Vincent Sherry offers a provocative new account of modernism’s roots in nineteenth-century poetry. According to Sherry, modernism, for all its protestations against what Ezra Pound once derisively referred to as the “decayed-lily verbiage [of] the Wilde school,” is less a rejection than a reimagining of decadence (11).1 Indeed, occulted within Pound’s famous injunction to “make it new” is a relationship to time that Sherry views as decadent to its core. Reminding us that this slogan, now taken as emblematic of high modernism, was not coined by Pound until 1934 when modernism was entering its twilight years, Sherry reads within the modernist desire for newness a ...
