Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Henry James's cousin, Minny Temple, was the "heroine" of his youth in New England; he saw her as a free spirit, "a plant of pure American growth".

Both had an extraordinary impact on James, even (perhaps especially) in the wakes of their premature deaths.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p 377-474) and index.
