restricted access Remarks on Henry James
Abstract

Organized around unidentified comments on all the papers, these notes comment on James’s career as a “man of letters,” on the gap between the role and form of the sentence in his writing and that of plot and event. The emphasis on observation (and even a certain voyeurism) is balanced against James’s “invention” of the sub-conversation, and a final speculation is offered on the work’s possible allegorical dimensions.
