Product Description

Review

`an immensely detailed and scholarly piece of work ... The strength of Horne's book lies in his sensitivity to the subtle changes of effect and nuance that James often achieves in his revisions for the New York edition ... One could read this book for the interest and instruction of following Horne's literary detective work alone, but this would be to underestimate the many other virtues of what, I'm sure, will come to be regarded as one of the most important recent works on Henry James'American Studies

`THE phenomenon of the New York Edition of Henry James's work is well known in scholarly circles. ...It was a prodigious achievement, and Philip Horne charts it in an exemplary way, with a biographical account of the revising and publishing history. ...The book establishes Philip Horne's place among the generation of distinguished young Jamesians now coming along. It has a closeness of attention which is super-fine, and at many points it is extremely illuminating.' Bernard Richards, Notes and Queries

'elegant and scholarly book' Times Higher Education Supplement

`Philip Horne has written a brilliant academic study, showing in detail the author's revisions of stories and novels in the preparation of the New York Edition of his works ... He [Horne] seems to have absorbed the ways of thought natural to James and to have caught the tone of voice that goes with it.'Stuart Hampshire, New York Review of Books

'Reading Horne on James is rather like reading Pritchett on Chekhov or Ellmann on Joyce. He seems to have absorbed the ways of thought natural to James and to have caught the tone of voice that goes with it.' The New York Review

'Philip Horne's Henry James and Revision is one of the better studies this year and also as deeply satisfying a treatment of this important Jamesian issue as I have read. First of all, it is a comprehensive study, incorporating a great fund of information and previous scholarship pertinent to its subject. Second, Horne exhibits simply exquisite critical acumen in his close reading of James's revisions, especially very subtle ones. Third, he incorporates an enlightening and refreshing allusiveness to the broader tradition of English literature when contextualizing James's revision processes. Horne, without being dogmatic, offers a persuasive counter-balance to the sort of 'hot' problematic-oriented views at present concerning James's revision process ...This bookshould be read by any number of American scholars who these days simply assume that the unrevised texts are fresher and freer of the Master-discourse.'Richard A. Hocks, University of Missouri, MLR, 88.2, 1993
