Abstract

Credit for the twentieth-century recuperation of Henry James's canonical standing largely goes to the Modernist generation that succeeded him. Far from demonstrating symptoms of the anxiety of influence, many of the high Modernists were eager to embrace James's example—none more so than R. P. Blackmur. Blackmur's effort to collect and publish separately the prefaces to the New York Edition marked an irreversible turning point in the construction of the modern canon and cemented James's place in it.
