Examines the continual interplay between imagination and experience in James's fiction through six representative novels: Roderick Hudson, The Portrait of a Lady, What Maisie Knew, The Sacred Fount, The Ambassadors, and The Golden Bowl. Shows that James's formal techniques have in common a massive appeal to the imagination, both of the characters within the novel and of the reader outside it. Includes an Index.
