Daily Henry James

A Year of Quotes from the Work of the Master

A strange and delightful memento of one of the most lasting literary voices of all time, The Daily Henry James is a little book from a great mind. First published with James's approval in 1911 as the ultimate token of fandom--a limited edition quote-of-the-day collection titled The Henry James Year Book--this new edition is a gift across time, arriving as we mark the centenary of his death. Drawing on the Master's novels, essays, reviews, plays, criticism, and travelogues, The Daily Henry James offers a series of impressions (for if not of impressions, of what was James fond?) to carry us through the year. From the deepest longings of Isabel Archer to James's insights in The Art of Fiction, longer seasonal quotes introduce each month, while concise bits of wisdom and whimsy mark each day. To take but one example: Isabel, in a quote from The Portrait of a Lady for September 30, muses, "She gave an envious thought to the happier lot of men, who are always free to plunge into the healing waters of action." Featuring a new foreword by James biographer Michael Gorra as well as the original introductions by James and his good friend William Dean Howells, this long-forgotten perennial calendar will be an essential bibelot for James's most ardent devotees and newest converts alike, a treasure to be cherished daily, across all seasons, for years, for ages to come.

Portrait
