Muriel G. Shine (Author)
Out of stock. Usually delivers within 4 weeks.


This analysis of the novels of Henry James explores his representation of children and adolescents, reaching its conclusions directly from the texts of the fiction itself. Shine examines the social and historical factors that may have affected the novelist's observations about children. The major emphasis of the study is on identification, analysis, and synthesis of diverse thematic patterns that fused in the 1890s to produce the uniquely Jamesian child.
