Excerpt

The youthful Henry James, a few months beyond the age of twenty-one, began his literary career as critic, in The North American Review of October, 1864, with an unsigned review of Nassau W. Senior "Essays on Fiction." In the present volume the editor has collected all of James's printed writings during the first three calendar years of his apprenticeship (1864, 1865, and 1866), with the exception of six papers which have already appeared in "book form." Of these six, two are stories: A Landscape Painter (The ,Itlantic Monthly, February, 1866) and A Day of Days (The Galaxy, June 15, 1866). Both were reprinted by Henry James himself in his collection of tales called "Stories Revived" (1865). The other four are unsigned book-reviews and may be found in Mr. Le Roy Phillips volume of "Views and Reviews" (1908). These are Matthew Arnold's Essays (from The North American Review, July, 1865), Mr. Walt Whitman (from The Nation, November 16,, 1865), The Limitations of Dickens (from The Nation, December 21, 1865), and "The Novels of George Eliot" (from The Atlantic Monthly, October, 1866).
