summary

This critical and scholarly edition presents the complete letters of Henry James, one of the great novelists and letter writers of the English language. Comprising more than ten thousand letters and addressing a remarkably wide range of topics, this edition is an indispensable resource for students and scholars of James, of the European novel and modern literature, and of American and English literature, culture, and criticism.

This volume contains letters written from December 21, 1877, to September 29, 1878, when, having settled comfortably into London life, James finished preparing the foundation for the career that would define his reputation as a critic and fiction writer. During this time James published Daisy Miller and The Europeans as well as other fiction, reviews, and cultural criticism.
