This volume attempts to determine the early influence shared between William Dean Howells and Henry James by reconstructing and evaluating documentary evidence of their literary cross-fertilization. The 151 letters included represent each writer's most significant criticism of the other.

The complex and shifting economic and literary co-ordinates of the 151 letters that comprise Michael Anesko's magnificent edition of the Howells-James correspondence make fascinating reading ... Anesko traces with impeccable scholarship (background essays, published materials by one on the other, annotations and textual notes) an unusual but enduring epistolary relationship.

Texte du rabat

In this unique and long-awaited volume, Michael Anesko documents the literary cross-fertilization between Henry James and William Dean Howells, collecting 151 letters, nearly all the extant correspondence between the two men, as well as the most significant critical commentary James wrote
on Howells and Howells wrote on James.
Scholars have long recognized the peculiar importance of the relationship between these two exponents of realistic fiction--their mutual respect and occasional animosity. But the record of their affinities and substantial differences has never before been so amply and compellingly established.
Containing dozens of previously unpublished letters by James, and featuring a detailed biographical chronology as well as extensive interpretive commentaries that meticulously chart the development of this remarkable literary friendship, Letters, Fictions, Lives, edited to the highest standards of
scholarly excellence, will prove an invaluable resource for scholars and students of James and Howells, and will hold great interest for dedicated readers of their fiction and for those studying epistolary issues and literary influence between contemporaries.
