From the Back Cover
The 21 stories in Complete Stories 1892-1898 represent James at the peak of his storytelling powers. Among them are "The Turn of the Screw", one of his most popular works, a terrifying exercise in psychological horror centering on the corruption of childhood innocence; "The Real Thing", a playful consideration of the illusions of art and the paradoxes of authenticity; "The Figure in the Carpet", "The Death of the Lion", and "The Middle Years", three very different expositions of the mysteries of authorship, embodying some of James's most profound insights into the nature of his own art; "The Altar of the Dead", a somber, ultimately wrenching meditation on the relation of the living to the dead; and "In the Cage", an extended evocation of the inner life of a young woman trapped in a dehumanizing job at a postal-and-telegraph office.See all Product description

I'm in the fourth book of his short stories, working my way happily toward the fifth and final. But with Henry James, there is no final chapter because when you finish the five, it is irresistible that you return to the first, and then your favorites and of course, his novels, during which you get to savor and thrill all over again to his magnificent arrangement of words, his mind and his unique style.
