Synopsis:

“Leon Edel has brilliantly provided for the art of biography a much-needed statement of first principles.” ―Louis Auchincloss

The Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of Henry James presents here a revision of his Literary Biography expanded with six further essays illuminating what he calls the New Biography―an approach that draws on the resources of psychoanalysis, the biographer’s own subjectivity, and the skills of the novelist. Mr. Edel includes a history of the art of biography since Boswell, criticism of some of the best-known biographers, advice for the biographer on documentation and the use of psychological theory, and a discussion of what Edel calls the supreme problem in biography―transference, the life-writer’s emotional involvement with his or her subject.
