Abstract

This essay situates Henry James in relation to the sublime as an aesthetic category that unites the broader Romantic-Modern Tradition. Through readings of The Portrait of a Lady, the Notebooks, the prefaces to the New York Edition, The American Scene, and The Golden Bowl, the author links James to a range of Romantic and Modernist visionary poets, philosophers, and critics including Milton, Keats, Yeats, Burke, Kant, Pater, Hartman, and Said.
