Biografía breve
Henry James (15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American author, who became a British subject in the last year of his life, regarded as a key transitional figure between literary realism and literary modernism and is considered by many to be among the greatest novelists in the English language. He was the son of Henry James Sr. and the brother of renowned philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.

He is best known for a number of novels dealing with the social and marital interplay between émigré Americans, English people, and continental Europeans. Examples of such novels include The Portrait of a Lady, The Ambassadors, and The Wings of the Dove. His later works were increasingly experimental. In describing the internal states of mind and social dynamics of his characters, James often made use of a style in which ambiguous or contradictory motives and impressions were overlaid or juxtaposed in the discussion of a character's psyche. For their unique ambiguity, as well as for other aspects of their composition, his late works have been compared to impressionist painting.

His novella The Turn of the Screw has garnered a reputation as the most analysed and ambiguous ghost story in the English language and remains his most widely adapted work in other media. He also wrote a number of other highly regarded ghost stories and is considered one of the greatest masters of the field.

James published articles and books of criticism, travel, biography, autobiography, and plays. Born in the United States, James largely relocated to Europe as a young man and eventually settled in England, becoming a British citizen in 1915, one year before his death. James was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912 and 1916.

Reseñas

El tema de la muerte se manifiesta a lo largo de toda la novela. La institutriz que escribió el relato lleva muerta 25 años, los niños son huérfanos, los fantasmas murieron tras trabajar en el caserón. Los niños aparecen como figuras angelicales y totalmente inocentes y poco a poco van sacando un lado más oscuro y malvado, así como la propia institutriz, que parece salida del nido familiar, va mostrando poco a poco síntomas de locura y perversión que van desvelando su propia personalidad.… (más)

Félix Young y su hermana la baronesa Eugenia Münster visitan a unos primos suyos que viven cerca de Boston. La familia la forman el señor Wetworth, sus hijas, Charlotte y Gertrude, y un varón, el joven Clifford.

Adam Verver, un rico viudo norteamericano retirado de los negocios, recorre Europa con su hija Maggie comprando y coleccionando antigüedades. Cuando Maggie conoce y se enamora de Americo, un príncipe romano rico en apostura y linaje, mas no en fortuna, su padre se lo "compra" como le ha comprado todo cuanto le ha gustado en la vida, al tiempo que él mismo adquiere, para sus segundas nupcias, una atractiva, y también pobre, muchacha norteamericana, Charlotte Stant. Charlotte es amiga de Maggie y es también amiga del Príncipe: su amistad con éste se remonta a un tiempo en que la pobreza parecía condenarlos a no unirse jamás. Ahora vuelven a encontrarse en el lujo y la holgura, pero si las antiguas trabas han desaparecido es sólo gracias a aquellos con quienes se han casado... Un espléndido juego de variaciones sobre las posibilidades de este singular ménage a quatre constituye y articula la que hubo de ser la última novela completa de Henry James, "un drama maravillosamente luminoso" en palabras de Gore Vidal, en el que el conocimiento es "tanto fascinación como temor".… (más)

Lo que Maisie sabia gira en torno a la vida de una niña cuyos padres acaban de divorciarse y a los que se les impone la custodia repartida de la hija; lo que acontece es un reparto con reminiscencias salomonicas. Maisie rebota de casa en casa cada seis meses primero para, después, no solo tener dos padres (separados) sino cuatro (en permanente unión y desunión). Entre madre, padre, madrastra, padrastro, institutrices y niñeras Maisie trata de aprender a sentir lo que es un hogar y una familia.… (más)
