About the Book

Henry James stands as one of the preeminent writers of the late 19th/early 20th century period; however, the world he wrote about has since disappeared. This collection of essays provides pedagogical assistance for several of his short stories—including “The Jolly Corner”, “The Europeans” and “Travelling Companions”—and his most anthologized longer works. It is aimed at instructors who do not consider themselves experts on James’ work. Each essay approaches a single work, offering a critical analysis as well as providing pedagogical suggestions for how to introduce both the work and the relevant social issues to students of the 21st century.
