Product Description

By the 1890s, his own middle years, James was feeling particularly depressed by his lack of a sizeable, responsive audience in what he called 'an age of trash triumphant'. Fiction should be undertaken as an art or not at all. These stories, several of them elaborate Jamesian games, are all concerned with the art of fiction and the position of the artist in society. The Figure in the Carpet, the motif and title story, is an inspired joke, a masterpiece of double-entendre that demands the reader's undivided love and attention and continues to battle its critics.
