Gratuitous Henry James Posting

(This one's for Mom, who did her Master's thesis on James.)

Terry Teachout's Girl in Chicago is posting today about What Maisie Knew and the theme of dissembled knowledge in James' characters.

I must confess that I've only read a little James myself. I never got the chance in college beyond a couple of short stories. And as his writing is so dense and therefore not really suitable for reading on the metro or when I'm half asleep late in the evening, I've more or less consigned him to the category of "Authors I Plan To Study Once I Retire And The Kids Have Moved Out".
