The 15 distinguished essays reprinted here represent, in the editor's view, the best Jamesian criticism of the last four decades. Yale professor Bloom currently edits five critical series for Chelsea House; this volume is one of the best published thus far in this prodigious undertaking. Bloom sees James as "the critical American novelist," offering in his introduction a reading of The Portrait of a Lady as evidence. Most of the other pieces are also close examinations of specific works, among them Tony Tanner on The Ambassadors, David Howard on The Bostonians, and Richard Poirier on Washington Square and The American. Aimed at readers already familiar with James, the collection will be in demand among students and scholars of "The Master."Starr E. Smith, Georgetown Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
