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.
