  • A "Smell of the Future": Henrietta Stackpole, Henry James, and the Female
           Journalist Problem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In his 1908 New York Edition preface, Henry James describes Henrietta Stackpole, the female journalist friend of his protagonist in The Portrait of a Lady, as "not an element of my plan, but only an excess of my zeal," his attempt "to be amusing" and to bring a "wonderful notion of the lively" to the novel (FW 1084-85). In spite of whatever "plan" James claims to have had, Henrietta's "superabundance" in the novel reflects her oversized presence in the preface; in both the novel and preface, James is, to use Carolyn Mathew's term, "distracted" by Henrietta and ultimately pays her more attention than would be expected for this seemingly minor character (202). The reason for this oversized presence is that Henrietta ... Read More

  • Trenching on the Ground of Fiction: "A Tragedy of Error"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To the memory of J. Hillis Miller, who taught me how to read.Henry James's first published story, "A Tragedy of Error," appeared unsigned in February 1864 in Continental Monthly, and it remained unidentified as his work until Leon Edel deduced its authorship in 1953 through a reference in a contemporary letter (Edel, Untried Years 215–16, "A Tragedy of Error" 293). James left the story uncollected, and even since its identification by Edel it has been largely neglected.1 I propose to resurrect this forgotten early story, a cautionary tale of marital betrayal whose mechanism of retribution snaps shut at the end in a nastily overdetermined manner. In fact, nasty overdetermination is in part the story's subject. A ... Read More

  • The Queerness of William James

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Willy is the happiest, queerest boy in the world. Harry [Henry James] the most lovely, gentle and good," wrote Ellen Emerson, Ralph Waldo Emerson's daughter, after spending several days with the James family in Newport, Rhode Island in 1862 (Habegger 423). Privately circulating accounts framing the preeminent American psychologist William James (or "Willy") as much queerer than his brother Henry wouldn't have surprised those who knew the Jameses prior to the 1880s. But since the late nineteenth century, few historians and literary scholars have even discreetly alluded to non-heteronormative episodes in William's life and intellectual career. In fact, up to the present, there is not one sustained, scholarly ... Read More

  • Henry James Framed—A Partial Portrait (Part 1)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A relatively brief excursion into the history of Henry James's intersections with the world of art at the turn of the last century (while researching Henry James and Queer Filiation: Hardened Bachelors of the Edwardian Era) persuaded me that even that well-traversed territory might yield new insights if approached from a different angle. Understandably, James's extensive commentaries on the visual arts—and the almost ubiquitous presence of artist-figures and their works in his fiction—have inspired an impressive bibliography of critical studies that explore this crucial dimension of the writer's achievement. But surprisingly few James scholars (even his numerous biographers) have addressed this subject from its ... Read More

  • "What a Disordered Editor!": Revisiting The American Scene

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Let's be clear from the start: the title of this piece refers not to Peter Collister, editor of this fulsome new scholarly edition of The American Scene, but rather to William Leonard Courtney (1850–1929), the Britisher then in charge of the Fortnightly Review, which would publish just five serial installments of James's work before the book finally was issued in England by Chapman and Hall and in the United States by Harper and Brothers in 1907. Henry James uttered this ejaculatory lament in one of his many letters to James B. Pinker (1863–1922), his literary agent—documents that partially chronicle the irregular fortunes of his periodical contributions in the fourteen months prior to the appearance of The ... Read More
