Abstract

One welcomes the opportunity to present a chronology such as this, offering as it does a format for an intense articulation of James’s biographical experiences, which are presented amid the detailed unfolding of his imaginative writing, and set in the larger context of historical developments that impinged on his life. The range of his experiences with other human beings is immense. The intensity of his efforts to honor them and himself is constantly evident, and his endless efforts to express his joyful and tragic experiences compel repeated admiration. More mundanely, we become witnesses of his day-to-day struggles with financial necessity, and of his insistence on partaking of the abundant pleasures of life, both while enduring penury and after being rewarded.
