KIRKUS REVIEW

10 complete novels, including two of his best known -- Daisy Miller and The Turn of the Screw, serve as a rather exciting introduction of Henry James to a generation that knows him chiefly as a name. The introduction is definitely a critical introduction, with only partial biographical data, but serves to place James in his contribution to American literature, to stress his value inspirationally in modern writings. Good value.
