ΠΛΑΤΕΙΑ ΟΥΑΣΙΓΚΤΟΝ (ΧΑΡΤΟΔΕΤΗ ΕΚΔΟΣΗ)
Εκδότης: ΚΑΣΤΑΝΙΩΤΗΣ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2250-2255

Μια αφήγηση παθιασμένων συγκρούσεων στην αναπτυσσόμενη αστική Αμερική του 19ου αιώνα. Η ιστορία της Κάθριν Σλόπερ, του σκληρού πατέρα της και του προικοθήρα αρραβωνιαστικού της είναι μια σύγκρουση αρπακτικών αρσενικών που διεκδικούν, μέσα από παραδοσιακούς και μη διαύλους, την εξουσία. Η στάση της Κάθριν Σλόπερ είναι η γενναία στάση της γυναίκας που, πολεμώντας να διεκδικήσει τη διαφορά της, έξω από τους πάγιους ανδρικούς κανόνες, συντρίβεται. Η Πλατεία Ουάσιγκτον, το σκηνικό όπου διαδραματίζεται το μυθιστόρημα, είναι ένας προκατακλυσμιαίο...

(P/B) THE NOTEBOOKS OF HENRY JAMES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0495

"For other novelists the value of Henry James's Notebooks is immense and to brood other them a major experience. The glow of the great impresario is on the pages. They are occasionally readable and endlessly stimulating, often moving and are ocasionally relieved by a drop of gossip." - V. S. Pritchett, New Statesman "The Notebooks take us into his study, and here we can observe him, at last, in the very act of creation at his writing table." - Leon Edel, Atlantic Monthly "A document of prime importance." - Edmund Wilson, New Yorker...

ΟΙ ΦΑΚΕΛΟΙ ΤΟΥ ΑΣΠΕΡΝ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 6106-0009

Ο θάνατος του Τζέφρι Άσπερν άφησε ερωτηματικά πίσω του. Ο ρομαντικός και πετυχημένος ποιητής του 19ου αιώνα έγραψε αποκαλυπτικά γράμματα για τα πιο όμορφα μάτια της εποχής του. Η Τζουλιάνα Μπορντερό, μια πολύ ηλικιωμένη γυναίκα με υπέροχα μάτια, κρύβει ως επτασφράγιστο μυστικό τους φακέλους με τα γράμματα του Τζέφρι Άσπερν. Στο ειδυλλιακό σκηνικό της Βενετίας εξελίσσεται το κυνήγι της αλήθειας από τον αφηγητή. Η αντιπαράθεση με την δαιμονική γηραιά κυρία και η πολύπλοκη σχέση που αναπτύσσει με την ανιψιά της, την δεσποινίδα Τίνα, συνθέτουν...

(P/B) WHAT MAISIE KNEW
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0250

The child of parents who divorce, remarry and then embark on adulterous affairs, Maisie Farange survives by her intelligence and spirit. For all its sombre theme of childhood innocence exposed to a corrupted adult world, this novel is one of James's comic masterpieces. The outrageous behaviour of the characters on the seedy fringes of the English upper class is conveyed with wit and relish. The dual perspective of a sophisticated narrator richly appreciative of the absurdities of the adult sexual merry-go-round and the candid vision of Mai...

Mrs Gareth, widowed chatelaine of Poynton, is fighting to keep her house with its priceless objets d'art from her son Owen and his lovely, utterly philistine fiance'e. When she discovers that her young friend and sympathizer Fleda Vetch is secretly in love with Owen, she thrusts her into the battle-line. The power struggle that ensues between the three women leaves Owen vacillating. What is at stake is not the mere possession of tables and chairs; it is, for Fleda, a conflict between aesthetic ideals, ethical imperatives, and her innermost...

Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0254

Henry James's last completed novel, The Golden Bowl, is the story of two flawed marriages. The lives and relationships of Maggie Verver and her widowed American millionaire father, Adam, are changed and challenged by the beautiful and charming Charlotte Stant, who is the former lover of Maggie's husband, the impoverished Italian, Prince Amerigo.

The gilded crystal bowl with its almost invisible flaw is the vehicle which James uses to reveal past misdemeanours and make his characters face t...

(H/B) THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0064

The Portrait of a Lady is the most stunning achievement of Henry James's early period--in the 1860s and '70s when he was transforming himself from a talented young American into a resident of Europe, a citizen of the world, and one of the greatest novelists of modern times. A kind of delight at the success of this transformation informs every page of this masterpiece. Isabel Archer, a beautiful, intelligent, and headstrong American girl newly endowed with wealth and embarked in Europe on a treacherous journey to self-knowledge, is delineat...

(P/B) THE AMERICAN
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0504

Henry James's third novel is an exploration of his most powerful, perennial theme - the clash between European and American cultures, the Old World and the New. Christopher Newman, a 'self-made' American millionaire in France, falls in love with the beautiful aristocratic Claire de Bellegarde. Her family, however, taken aback by his brash American manner, rejects his proposal of marriage. When Newman discovers a guilty secret in the Bellegardes' past, he confronts a moral dilemma: Should he expose them and thus gain his revenge? James's ma...

(P/B) THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY
Εκδότης: W.W. NORTON & COMPANY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3115-0097

The text of this Second Edition of one of Henry James's most important novels is that of the New York Edition (1908). In a sense, there are two distinctly separate Portraits-the 1880-81 First Edition and the New York Edition, which James extensively revised. The editor has meticulously prepared a list of textual variants to facilitate comparative reading of the novel. Nina Baym, F. O. Matthiessen, and Anthony J. Mazzella provide differing interpretations of James's revision process. Henry James and the Novel culls autobiographical excerpts...

Meander through Provence in the company of Henry James experiencing the sights, culture and sounds of late nineteenth-century Southern France in this new book in Hesperus's bestselling 'On' series.

"I had but hugged the shore" until Roderick Hudson, wrote Henry James. This is his first full-length novel and executed with such blazing, confident, thirty-one-year-old talent that even if he had produced nothing else, his fame would have been assured.

'You must paint her just like that ... as the Tragic Muse' Suggests one of James's characters to Nick Dormer, the young Englishman who, during the course of the novel, will courageously resist the glittering Parliamentary career desired for him by his family, in order to paint. His progress is counterpointed by the 'Tragic Muse' of the title, Miriam Rooth, one of James's most fierily beautiful creations, a great actress indifferent to social reputation, and triumphantly dedicated to her art. In portraying the conflict between art and 'the ...

They leap, therefore, at the invitation to become the live-in guardians of the birthplace of the nation's literary hero. In The Birthplace, James displays his eye for character and a wry appreciation of pretension and the absurd. [...] (From the publisher)...
