Originally published in 1949, The Complete Plays of Henry James revealed how the novelist, after repeated attempts to succeed on stage, used his dramatic experience to create his major novels written after 1900. This masterful new edition by prize-winning biographer Leon Edel now chartsJames's posthumous success in the modern media. Through examination of the plays themselves, Edel brings to light the irony of James's dramatic novels--novels that achieved the kind of success in video and film that James had desperately sought in the theater of the 1890s. Corrected and carefullyupdated, this pathbreaking collection thus completes the story first told four decades ago, and includes additional data that has surfaced in recent years.
