Abstract:Whenever the late fiction of Henry James is discussed, it seems inevitable that the discussion turn to point-of-view. The classic example is, of course, the governess in "The Turn of the Screw." The whole story revolves around the question of the narrator's reliability. But even on a less spectacular level, namely the study of imagery, point- of-view must be considered. In order to judge James's skill in handling his images, it is important to know whether James or his character is creating the image, it is vital to understand how conscious the central intelligence is of the images he himself employs. Only then can a fair estimation of James's success be made.
