The Altar of the Dead (Illustrated Edition)
by Henry James
Henry James (15 April 1843 28 February 1916) was an American writer best known for his ties to England, as well as being one of the key writers of 19th-century literary realism. James spent the last 53 years of his life in England, becoming a British subject in 1915, one year before his death. James is best known for novels in which he portrays the encounter of Americans with Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allows him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, a style later compared to impressionist painting. James novella, The Altar of the Dead, deals with a man who becomes obsessed with worshipping the dead, a classic example of his literary realism. This edition includes a table of contents and images of James and his house in England.
