Henry James' The Golden Bowl

  • Jan 29, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will discuss background on the life and novels of Henry James.

At the following meetings we will discuss The Golden Bowl, one of the masterpieces of James' late period, when he attempts to explore the intricacies of human consciousness through an increasingly complex writing style.  While his brother, William, famously derided James' late style, particularly that of The Golden Bowl, it will be interesting to discuss how successful Henry is at capturing in fiction the "stream of consciousness," which William descibed in his writing on psychology.

Here is the tentative schedule:
