About the book:

To read a story by Henry James is to enter a fully realized world unlike any othera rich, perfectly crafted domain of vivid language and splendid, complex characters. Devious children, sparring lovers, capricious American girls, obtuse bachelors, sibylline spinsters, and charming Europeans populate these five fascinating nouvelles, which represent the author in both his early and late phases. From the apparitions of evil that haunt the governess in The Turn of the Screw to the startling self-scrutiny of an egotistical man in The Beast in the Jungle, the mysterious turnings of human behavior are coolly and masterfully observedproving Henry James to be a master of psychological insight as well as one of the finest prose stylists of modern English literature.
