Henry James (15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American writer best known for his ties to England, as well as being one of the key writers of 19th-century literary realism. James spent the last 53 years of his life in England, becoming a British subject in 1915, one year before his death.
James is best known for novels in which he portrays the encounter of Americans with Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allows him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, a style later compared to impressionist painting.
This edition of James’ novella Glasses, which was published in 1896, includes a table of contents and images of James and his home.
