Harvard University Press, Cambridge: 1991. 0674557638 / 9780674557635 s Softcover. Good condition. 
Using the "close" reading technique on a dozen of James's novels and short stories, Bell attempts to prove that James encourages several reader responses: to perceive impressionistically, oscillating between appearance and meaning; to accept action as being rather than doing; to sympathize with characters who resist prescribed form; and to anticipate the course of the story or characters, although he often diverts or cancels it. Bell also demonstrates how writers such as Hawthorne, Flaubert, and Zola influenced James's thinking and style. Includes an Index.

The twofold aim of this volume, in the words of its author, is "to reassess the work of our greatest medieval author and to resurvey the fifteenth century in the light of modern scholarship."

He makes a study of the age of Chaucer, the events which shaped his career, and the precise poetic means Chaucer used to produce his unique effects. Includes an Index.
