The master on his mastery 17 février 2005
Par Shalom Freedman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Richard Blackmur in his introduction to this volume tells us that most of these prefaces were written for the famed 'New York Edition of his works. According to Lubbock," The labour was atorment, a care, and a delight, as his letters and the Prefaces themselves amply show. The thinking and the writing were hard and full and critical to the point of exasperation; the purpose was high, the reference wide, and the terms of discourse had to be conceived and defined as successive need for them arose. He had to elucidate and appropriate for the critical intellect the substance and principle of his career as an artist, and he had to do this, such was the idiosyncracy of his mind-specifically, example following lucid example with the consistency of mathematicl equation, so that in the Poetics, if his premises were accepted his conclusions must be taken as inevitable." p. vii

Blackmur says that criticism has never been more ambitious, or more useful. He cites James' definition of his task in his preface to 'Roderick Hudson'. "These notes represent over a considerable course the continuity of an artist's endeavor, the growth of the whole operative consciousness, and best of all, perhaps their own tendency to multiply , with the implication, thereby of a memory enriched'.

Among the prefaces included are those to 'Roderick Hudson' ' What Maisie Knew' 'The Princess Cassamissima' 'The Spoils of Poynton' 'The Altar to the Dead' 'The Tragic Muse'' The Lesson of the Master' ' The Aspern Papers' 'The Awkward Age''The Portrait of a Lady' ' The American'

James famous advice to the writer about ' trying to be one upon whom nothing is lost' certainly seems to apply to himself in his effort to understand and deepen the meaning of his own work both for himself and for his readers.

THE ART OF THE NOVEL - Abridged - Henry James 5 septembre 2005
Par Janis Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cassette
Written by esteemed novelist Henry James to serve as both retrospect of his work and statement on his art. The result is a consciousness raising journey into the creative mind of a genius. In the masterful voice of Henry James, narrative theory comes alive.

Every the fableist, James reveals in the first paragraph the seed of his work: "Addicted to stories and inclined to retrospect, the artist fondly takes his whole unfolding for a thrilling tale, a wonderous adventure." THE ART OF THE NOVEL" is a psychological and metaphysical treat.

concentrate! 9 août 2013
Par Paul Ehrmann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This is by no means light or easy reading, but if you stay with it, these introductions to his own work by Henry James come as close to illuminating the mystery of the creative process, of story making, of what goes on in a writer's mind before it goes down on paper as anything you will read.

Shut off the TV, turn on your brain and read the word of A Master.
