An intensely visual writer, Henry James recorded in his notebooks the observation that, "The scenic method is my absolute, my imperative, my salvation." This concise illustrated biography by the author of Marcel Proust opens new doors to James's readers and students of his works by showing the vast scope of his visual imagination. The images collected in this book, some previously unpublished, depict the members of his illustrious and accomplished family, artwork that influenced him, the friends and acquaintances who inspired some of James's unforgettable protagonists, and the places in Boston, London, and Venice that formed the settings for his novels.
