Partial Portraits (Esprios Classics) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Partial Portraits is a book of literary criticism by Henry James published in 1888.

The book collected essays that James had written over the preceding decade, mostly on English and American writers.

But the book also offered treatments of Alphonse Daudet, Guy de Maupassant and Ivan Turgenev.

Perhaps the most important essay was The Art of Fiction, James' plea for the widest possible freedom in content and technique in narrative fiction.
