Abstract

[...] the "abuse of the past" becomes in James's hands "an art of fiction and the framework of an autobiography" (67-68). According to Rawlings, "Henry James's late fiction specializes in constructing, within the volatile framework of philosophies of time then current, decadent mutations of America's vanishing dreamers, characters arrested . . . by the forlorn realization that 'we shall never be again as we were!'" (141-42).
