lukas, January 20, 2014 (view all comments by lukas)
As James's matured, his novels became denser and more difficult, favoring deep psychological insight, long, luxurious sentences and a complex, highly nuanced style. None of these elements make for easy reading exactly, but "The Wings of The Dove," often considered one of his greatest books, rewards those who stick with it, even if its 500 pages can exhaust the most intrepid reader. Also see "The Golden Bowl" and "The Ambassadors."
