This is an absolute gem of a book. It contains hand-picked samples of every phase in James' literary career. Stories like "Lesson of the Master", "The Pupil" and "The Middle Years" are, in brief, the finest examples we have of the short story. The prose is rich, profound and refined. These are tales worth reading over and over again. The collection also contains "In the Cage", "Beast in the Jungle" and "The Jolly Corner". If you are a devotee of polished 'higher' literature and want to sip the cream of a master hand here is your emerald castle!

As expected an indepth understanding of the human condition. Very realistic, of course, and informative about the human condition and behaviour. Takes to you back to an unfamiliar age and attitudes.
