Summary
""It's refreshing to read a book on James that actually adds new knowledge. The Illustration of the Master brings together for the first time nearly all the materials on James and illustrations, altering and correcting long-held critical assumptions on the topic."--Susan M. Griffin, University of Louisville" ""This very interesting monograph presents new information in a useful and helpfully readable way. James's collaboration with magazine illustrators has not been studied this comprehensively before."M{uFE23}ichael Anesko, Pennsylvania State University" "The Illustration of the Master examines the crucial role of the illustrated press in the formation of the reading public and the writing profession during Henry James's lifetime. Using an array of new contextual and visual materials and archival sources, author Amy Tucker rereads a significant portion of James's oeuvre in the context of the explosive growth of the magazine industry in the United States and abroad during the final decades of the nineteenth century, a pivotal period when literature figured in the public imagination as an overwhelmingly visual experience. The critical analysis presented in this book opens up conversations in literary, visual, and cultural studies by demonstrating the wider practical applications of critical and visual theory, particularly regarding the vital interplay of word and image that helped define literary culture at a moment before "popular entertainment" and "high art" went their separate ways."--Jacket
