"Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. The third is to be kind."– Henry James
About Henry James
American expatriate author Henry James is known for such psychologically astute, stylistically dense fiction as The Portrait of a Lady and The Turn of the Screw. He was born in 1843 in New York City, son of Henry James Sr., a noted intellectual, and brother to philosopher William James. After traveling through Europe as a young man, he settled in England. His writing often dealt with innocent, brash Americans in conflict with sophisticated Europeans. He died in 1916.
