Summary: "As an American author who chose to live in Europe, Henry James frequently wrote about cultural differences between the Old and New World. The plight of bewildered Americans adrift on a sea of European sophistication became a regular theme in his fiction. This collection of twenty-four papers from some of the worlds leading James scholars offers a comprehensive picture of the authors cross-cultural aesthetics. It provides detailed analyses of James's perception of Europe -- of its people and places, its history and culture, its artists and thinkers, its aesthetics and its ethics -- which ultimately lead to a profound re-evaluation of his writing"--Publisher's description.
