The Henry James Review Spring 1983 to her supervisor, Diane Miller. Another change that you will notice as you read this issue is that we have adopted (and slightly adapted) the new method of citation exemplified in recent issues of PMLA. AU notes are end-notes, and they are restricted to substantive comments. All citations are brief parenthetical references to a list of works printed at the end of each article. Our adaptation of the MLA system is that we have added a separate "Key to Works by Henry James" at the end of each essay. Authors preparing work for submission to the HJR are urged to study the current issue as well as recent issues of PMLA and to style their manuscripts accordingly.
