The Complete Letters of Henry James fills a gap in literary studies today by presenting in a critical and scholarly edition the complete letters of one of the great novelists and letter writers of the English language. Comprising more than ten thousand letters and addressing a remarkably wide range of topics, this edition is an indispensable resource for students and scholars of James, the European novel and modern literature, and of American and English literature, culture, and criticism.

Written between November 1875 and November 1876, the letters in this volume find James settling in Paris; befriending Ivan Turgenev and mixing company with writers such as Gustave Flaubert, Emile Zola, and Alphonse Daudet; publishing travel essays and critical notices as well as the novels Roderick Hudson and The American; leaving Paris and settling in London, where he would live for much of the rest of his life.

Henry James (1843–1916) wrote short stories, plays, literary criticism, and travel essays and is most famous for his many novels, which include The Portrait of a Lady, The Bostonians, The Ambassadors, and The Golden Bowl. Pierre A. Walker is a professor of English at Salem State University. He is the editor of Henry James on Culture: Collected Essays on Politics and the American Social Scene, available in a Bison Books edition, and the author of Reading Henry James in French Cultural Contexts. Greg W. Zacharias is a professor of English at Creighton University, where he coordinates the Humanities Research Group and directs the Center for Henry James Studies. He is the editor of A Companion to Henry James and co-editor of Tracing Henry James.

“The general public has been deprived of James’s full epistolary record until now. . . . All the more reason to celebrate the present volumes, handsomely produced and extensively and intelligently annotated.”—Peter Brooks, Bookforum

“Rippling through these letters are the first imaginative stirrings of one of the greatest fiction and travel writers in the language. [James] was also one of the most entertaining—and prolific—correspondents. . . . These are richly enthralling letters.”—Peter Kemp, Sunday Times (London)

"The Letters collected in these elegant volumes, edited by Pierre A. Walker and Greg W. Zacharias, cover periods in which Henry James became Henry James."—Michael Gorra, Times Literary Supplement
