About this book

Henry James Narrative Technique situates Henry James famous method within an emerging modernist tradition with roots in philosophical debates between rationalism and empiricism. This cogent study considers James works in the context of nineteenth-century thought on consciousness, perception, and cognition. Kristin Boudreau makes the compelling argument that these philosophical discussions influenced James depictions of consciousness and are integral to his narrative technique.

Reviews

"Well-grounded in scholarship, Henry James Narrative Technique offers a fresh and original perspective on works such as The Bostonians , The Princess Casamassima , and The Wings of the Dove and will inspire scholars to a fresh reading of other of James s works. Boudreau s contribution is a nuanced examination of the way characters think in James s fiction and of the way James himself perceives and processes perceptions when he becomes a character in his travel essays. She persuasively connects James to the intellectual controversies of his time . . . a fine piece of work and a timely contribution" - Linda Simon, Professor of English, Skidmore College
