Facts about Henry James
Henry James Biography
Many consider Henry James to be the master of the psychological novel, and his influence on 20th century English literature is undisputed. An expatriate in London from 1876 to his death (he became a British citizen in 1915), James wrote about European-American and male-female relations, concocting some of the most sophisticated, complex prose you’ll ever hope to read. Hollywood dropped the complex prose, kept the costumes and made several films based on James’ novels, from 1947’s The Lost Moment to 1997’s Wings of the Dove.
