Editorial Reviews

Praise for earlier volumes in The Complete Letters of Henry James series:   "Rippling through these letters are the first imaginative stirrings of one of the greatest fiction and travel writers in the language. [James] was also one of the most entertaining-and prolific-correspondents. . . . These are richly enthralling letters."-Peter Kemp, Sunday Times (London)   "This latest volume of the Complete Letters represents, no less than its forebears, an inestimable contribution to readers hitherto obliged to hunt down James''s letters in various selections or scattered archives, and deserves to be greeted with the same jubilant chorus of praise and gratitude."-Alicia Rix, Times Literary Supplement   "This edition is not just notable for its astonishing ambition, however; even at this early stage, it must also be reckoned a signal achievement. By every measure, the volumes we have so far are simply outstanding in every major respect. . . . The result is an embarrassment of critical and biographical riches."-Bruce Bawer, New Criterion   - Praise for earlier volumes in the series - 20180305
