Product Description

Product Description

Regarded as one of the key figures of nineteenth century realism, Henry James has become famous for his novels and tales that explore the clash between the Old World Europeans and New World Americans. Using an innovative method of writing from a character’s point of view within a tale, James’ intellectual works explore issues related to consciousness and perception, producing his own inimitable ‘impressionist’ style. Delphi Classics is proud to present the complete works of this important master for the first time in publishing history, providing every novel, tale, non-fiction work and a wealth of bonus material.

Product Description:
* concise introductions to the novels and other texts
* all 23 novels – even the rare work THE OTHER HOUSE, often missed out of collections

I looked at other reviews and saw that the problems look to have being edited out.
Kindle fire allows colour pictures to be view and with touch screens it is easier to use. Delphi Classics editions have a full output of available works. It is great value for money. Short stories are llsted by date and in a to z order.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value. 12 Feb 2012

My first purchase for my new Kindle and I must admit that I am generally very pleased with it.
I already own most of the major novels and bought this mostly for the tales,which are hard (and very expensive!) to get hold of.
I have not yet read all the tales but have found a slight problem trying to find "The Real Thing". The link on the contents page leads to a tale headed "The Real Thing" but this turns out to be a quite different story,actually "In the Cage",which is also at the end of it's own link.
Some of the text has some very strange hyphenation,but not so that it really distracts from the reading experience.
As another reviewer has previously mentioned it would be nice to know which text was used,but that is a small quibble.
All in all,for the price paid, I cannot complain and will be buying more Delphi e-books soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag 14 July 2012
I bought this mainly for the short stories and some of the rarer novels. My main quibble is with the formatting. "Watch and Ward" and "Confidence" were fine, "The Reverberator" suffered from the block-capitals-instead-of-italics problem noticed with other Delphi editions, which gives the unJamesian impression the characters are shouting at each other, and "The Other House" was such a mess as to be unreadable. So far I've only scratched the surface of this enormous collection, but the rule seems to be that the more obscure texts are the ones most likely to contain errors. You get a lot for your money, but the standard of presentation is inconsistent.

Superb writing - so pleased to have finally started reading Henry James. What triggered it? I saw an excellent film, What Maisie Knew, based on a Henry James book. The film is about parents who use their small child as ammunition to hurt each other with complete disregard for her feelings & welfare. It is so relevant to today so I wanted to read the book.
