All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each readers understanding of these enduring works. Joseph Conrad once said of his friend Henry James, "As is meet for a man of his descent and tradition, Mr. James is the historian of fine consciences." As it turns out, James was also incredibly gifted at writing exceptional ghost stories. This collection--including "The Beast in the Jungle" and "The Jolly Corner"--features James's finest supernatural tales, along with criticism, a discussion of the legacies of James's writing, and provocative study questions.
