Spanning a period of almost 50 years, the stories of Henry James represent one of the most remarkable feats of sustained literary creation in modern times -- a body of work that, for sheer richness, variety, and intensity, is unsurpassed in its genre. This collection includes all the major stories as well as many that are unfamiliar but equally fascinating and memorable. Volume II includes the magnificent works of James's maturity -- "The Figure in the Carpet", "The Turn of the Screw", "The Beast in the Jungle", among many others -- in which the deepening darkness of the author's own life casts a tragic but heroic shadow on the themes of his youth.
