9781564785879: Sherbrookes: Possession / Sherbrookes / Stillness (American Literature Series)

Now finally collected into a single volume, the Sherbrookes trilogy-- Possession, Sherbrookes, and Stillness--is Nicholas Delbanco's most celebrated achievement. Centering upon one New England clan and their estate in southwestern Vermont--a full thousand acres, including the bleak and chilly Big House, from which the volatile Sherbrookes have such trouble escaping--these books form a virtuoso portrait of the love, pride, resentment, and even madness we inherit from our families. Written in his characteristically opulent, bravura prose, Delbanco is here revealed as a Henry James for our time: a passionate cataloger of human strength and frailty. Edited and revised by the author some thirty years after its first publication, the trilogy--"made new" as the single-volume Sherbrookes--can now be rediscovered by a new generation of readers.
