About the Author:

Henry James (15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.

Review:

"The story is told with all Mr. James’ delicate humor and gift for keen analysis." —Booklist

"The subject...has been handled with ingenuity, not without humor, with a fine effect of sharpness and perspicacity. That is Mr. James’s way. There are many fine phrases, crisply expressive, admirable flashes." —The New York Times

"If you thought you knew all the books of Henry James, think again— this one, James’ last, is largely unknown because it’s been out of print since its original publication in 1911. God knows why, though — it’s a delightful, surprisingly light-hearted take on James’ favorite topic, the clash of cultures..." —mobylives.com

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 140 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.The Outcry is a novel by Henry James published in 1911. This light comedy was originally conceived as a play. James cast the material in a three-act drama in 1909, but like so many of his plays, it failed to be produced. (There were two posthumous performances in 1917. ) In 1911 James converted the play into a novel, which was successful with the public. The Outcry was the last novel he was able to complete before his death in 1916. The storyline concerns the buying up of Britains art treasures by wealthy foreigners, especially Americans. While hardly a subject of life-and-death significance, James novel treats the idea in a busy, cheerful, appealing manner. Plot summary: To cover the gambling debts of his daughter Kitty Imber, the widowed Lord Theign is planning to sell his beautiful painting Duchess of Waterbridge by Sir Joshua Reynolds to American billionaire Breckinridge Bender. Hugh Crimble, a young art critic, argues against the sale, saying that Britains art treasures should stay in the country. He is supported by Theigns perceptive daughter, Lady Grace. When the newspapers get wind of the potential sale of the Reynolds, they raise a patriotic stink, which delights the bumptious, good-humored Bender. Meanwhile, Crimble has found another painting in Theigns collection that he suspects is a rarity by Mantovano. (James thought this was a completely fictitious name, but it turned out there really had been an obscure painter called Mantovano. ) Eventually, Crimbles hunch about the Mantovano turns out to be correct. Theign decides to donate the Mantovano to the National Gallery and not to sell the Reynolds to Breckinridge. His woman friend Lady Sandgate also donates her familys Sir Thomas Lawrence painting to the Gallery, which unites her and Theign forever. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
