Though technically a novella rather than a standard novel, the utter craft, and beauty of the Jamesian line-i.e., an especially dense and carefully constructed style of sentence structure associated with Henry James’ writing as presented in this disturbing late Victorian-era ghost story still stands among some of the most sublimely written prose in the English language. Equally satisfying is the book’s highly ambiguous nature, maintained all the way throughout, and James’ brilliant use of what has come to be called the unreliable narrator in our best-written fiction to date.
