Henry James displays his characteristic eye for character and a wry appreciation of pretension and the absurd. The Birthplace also embodies James’ engagement with the debate surrounding the cult of the Bard and the mercenary industry it had already engendered by the late nineteenth century.
The Birthplace is published here alongside ‘The Private Life’, another little-known work in which James tackles the broader issue of the importance of the author in literature,
subject of continued debate in the field of literary criticism but also in the arts in general.
