  • The Portrait's Subject: Inventing Inner Life in the Nineteenth-Century
           United States by Sarah Blackwood (review)
    • Abstract: Sarah Blackwood'sThe Portrait's Subject: Inventing Inner Life in the Nineteenth-Century United States is a study of tensions—between invention and discovery, between inner and outer, and between mind and body. Blackwood surveys how various modes of portraiture (broadly understood) both responded to and influenced evolving notions of selfhood in the United States during the nineteenth century. This cross-disciplinary volume attends to a number of types of portraits: the literary portrait, the printed icon, the photograph, the painted picture, and the X-ray. As Blackwood notes, the relationship between photography and the self has preoccupied many critics, including Walter Benjamin in the twentieth century and the ... Read More

  • Portraits from Life: Modernist Novelists and Autobiography by Jerome Boyd
           Maunsell (review)
    • Abstract: "There is no such thing as a true portrait. They are all delusions and I never saw any two alike." This opening epigraph culled from Nathaniel Hawthorne seems preemptive, but in fact aptly sums up Jerome Boyd Maunsell's endeavor to expose individual and collective acts and states of delusion in portrait-making. Unabashed by Hawthorne's plump but personal claim, Maunsell digs deeper to the sixteenth-century Italy and brings to light Giorgio Vasari's anecdote of Parmigianino's work on his Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror. Maunsell's reading of the painting, both his own and that mediated by John Ashbery's ekphrastic poem of the early 1970s, leads to the conclusion that artifice and illusion are an inescapable part of ...

  • Hearing Henry James's Poetry
    • Abstract: In "Notes of an Industrious Apprentice, or What the Master Knew" (first published in 2007), Richard Howard offers up a fleeting glimpse of Henry James as an unrealized poet. Speaking through Hugh Walpole's fictionalized 1911 diary, Howard sketches Edith Wharton's failed efforts to have James awarded the Nobel Prize, her subsequent campaign to keep those efforts secret (Walpole thinks of her as "Our / Lady of Manipulations" [342–43]), and James's ambiguously poised night out with the successful Prize winner, the Belgian playwright and poet, Maurice Maeterlinck. Howard's Walpole offers up a kind of social formalism—"syntax" he notes "is / no shallow part of what makes us human" (217–18). And it is in this context, I ... Read More

  • Exuberant Consonance in Henry James, Early and Late
    • Abstract: I want to thank the organizers of "The Sound of James" for inviting a great deal of thinking that otherwise would not have been undertaken on the aural dimensions of Henry James. I know that without the call for papers for this Trieste conference I would almost certainly not have followed the beguiling echo I heard when rereading The Ambassadors for a graduate seminar on James in the spring of 2018, the deeply delicious reduplication of Ds in the account of Strether's late intense engagement in Paris with the vividly absent Mrs. Newsome—"if he had never seen her so soundless he had never, on the other hand, felt her so highly, so almost austerely, herself: pure and by the vulgar estimate 'cold,' but deep devoted ...

  • The Music of Becoming-American
    • Abstract: In his study Hawthorne, Henry James's oft quoted yet misunderstood passage concerning what American culture lacks for literary production, the flurry of negations can lead one to gloss over the statement made at the conclusion of the section. Here, James teases readers about what makes America, and being an American, so "liberating":The natural remark, in the almost lurid light of such an indictment, would be that if these things were left out, everything is left out. The American knows that a good deal remains; what it is that remains—that is his secret, his joke, as one may say.(35)The absence of "high civilization" is later explained to be supplemented by the "minute" and simple pleasures, sensations, and ...

  • Voices from Venice: Gender and Sound in The Aspern Papers and "The
    • Abstract: James starts his 1892 essay "The Grand Canal" with the image of the Santa Maria della Salute, a Roman Catholic basilica, located at the mouth of the Grand Canal. James describes the Salute as a "woman of the world" whose "well-bred assurance" welcomes the visitor on the figurative "threshold" of Venice (CTW 315–16). James's emphasis on the church's secularity, as opposed to its spirituality, does away with its ostensibly inherent holiness. Adding the connotations of a fallen woman (or at least a too knowledgeable or material woman) adds insult to injury. There is another side to the simile, though. James personifies the Salute and puts her in the position of welcoming each visitor, as she is the first beautiful ... Read More

  • Creating a Home Theater: Voice and Intimacy in Henry James
    • Abstract: I was inside a silence that was not an absence of noise so much as the living presence of everything. … When I stepped into the little cell where I was to sleep, I was brought to such a state of attention … I was alone with my senses, the stars above me, the winding road above the sea. I'd disappeared inside the stillness all around me. … Every writer knows an outline of this richness: it's what's called being "in the zone."Pico Iyer, world-wide traveler, essayist, and novelist, who has long resided in Nara, one of Japan's most culturally significant cities, writes above about his experience at a retreat in California. He reflects on how he "unplugged" himself from his digitally and electrically driven life in ... Read More

  • The Sounding (Out) of Political Sentiments in "A Bundle of Letters" (1879)
    • Abstract: "A Bundle of Letters" remains a puzzle as a "quaint, trivial," and hence critically "much neglected" tale that James included in the New York Edition "with the resulting imprimatur that that inclusion implies" (Bishop 13). Over thirty years ago George Bishop traced the relatively small amount of scholarship for the tale to find little more than deprecation and dismissal. In the New Critical mid-twentieth century, "A Bundle of Letters" did not seem to qualify as a short story at all. Tony Tanner called the handful of James's narratives on the international theme1 not so much stories as "vehicles for his own mixed attitudes towards Europe and America" (19). Cornelia Pulsifer Kelley saw "A Bundle of Letters" as a ... Read More

  • "The Aspern Papers" and Modern Biography
    • Abstract: In Rambler 60 Samuel Johnson, who would compose the Lives of the English Poets, authoritatively declared, "no species of writing seems more worthy of cultivation than biography, since none can be more delightful or more useful, none can more certainly enchain the heart by irresistible interest" (319). James Boswell, the greatest example of a biographer who knew his subject personally, believed in Johnson's greatness as a writer, yet it was the man who delighted him. He recorded the details of Johnson's life and conversation as a duty owed to posterity. In the last volume of his journals Boswell sought the reader's sympathy for the titanic task of creating the Life of Johnson:You cannot imagine what labour, what ... Read More

  • A Henry James Filmography (2021)
    • Abstract: This is the third iteration of "A Henry James Filmography," an international catalog of screen adaptations of James's works for television, cinema, and straight-to-video. The first version, containing 101 adaptations representing 44 of James's works, was published in the Henry James Review in 1998. An updated version appeared in Henry James Goes to the Movies with 124 adaptations of 45 titles from James's oeuvre. The research since the second publication revealed that the appeal of James's works for film and television is far from waning. And though the conversation about the difficulty of transferring James to the screen continues, it is abundantly clear that those difficulties—whether recognized or ignored by ... Read More
