This is the first collection to bring together new essays exploring James’s depiction of gender and his use of sexual imagery—both now the focus of current debate. The essays, including those by eminent James scholars Leland Person and John Carlos Rowe, examine his fiction, films made from his work, his own literary criticism, letters, and travel writing. These essays represent a range of theoretical perspectives—cultural studies, feminist and gender studies, queer theory, Lacanian and deconstructive psychoanalytical studies, and historicism.
