9780333918746: Henry James’s Permanent Adolescence

This book illustrates how narcissism helped shape the way Henry James explored the subject of male desire in his fiction, which in turn is shown to have been paralleled by a shift in James's fiction from naturalistic beginnings to later stylistic evasion and obscurity. It covers the whole of James's career.

About the Author:

This book was written by John R. Bradley in the 1990s as an M.Litt thesis at Oxford University.

Review:

"An important addition to the critical reconsideration of Henry James's fictional representations of gender and sexuality. Bradley's notion of 'permanent adolescence' helps us understand James's relationship to his art in the wider context of late-Victorian aestheticism and Decadence, with a particular focus on Walter Pater, John Addington Symonds and Oscar Wilde." Professor John Carlos Rowe, University of California, Irvine

"Bradley writes with admirable lucidity and a companionable briskness...his book...(is) a judicious and, at times, illuminating study."- James Friel, Liverpool John Moores University

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 2000 ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Henry James remained throughout his life focused on his boyhood and early manhood, and correspondingly on younger boys and men, and John R. Bradley illustrates how it is in the context of such narcissism that James consistently dealt with male desire in his fiction. He also traces a more subtle but related trajectory in James s writing from a Classical to a Modernist gay discourse, which in turn is shown to have been paralleled by a shift in James s fiction from naturalistic beginnings to later stylistic evasion and obscurity. This radical book, which covers the whole of James s career, will quickly be recognized as a defining text in this emerging field of James studies. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780333918746
