Henry James was an American author, who became a British subject in the last year of his life. He is regarded as a key transitional figure between literary realism and literary modernism and is considered by many to be among the greatest novelists in the English language. He was the son of Henry James Sr. and the brother of renowned philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.
As an author of the nineteenth-century, James’ writing bridged the gap between literary realism and literary modernism. Moreover, James is considered a master of ghost stories, and the Turn of the Screw remains one of the most popular of the genre.
