Combining biography with literary criticism and theoretical inquiry, Victoria Coulson explores James’s intellectual relationships with Constance Fenimore Woolson, Edith Wharton, and his sister Alice James. The personal lives and literary works of these four writers manifest a widespread cultural ambivalence about gender identity at the end of the nineteenth century.


Introduction: ambivalent realism; 1. Alice James and the portrait heroine; 2. The actress and the orphan: Henry James's art of loss, 1882–95; 3. Teacups and love letters: Constance Fenimore Woolson and Henry James; 4. Realism and interior design: Edith Wharton and Henry James; Epilogue: 1892; Bibliography.
