Beast in the Jungle
James's subtle mastery of the art of fiction is nowhere more evident than in "The Beast in the Jungle." It regarded by many as his greatest achievement in short fiction. John, the protagonist is re-aquainted with May Bartram, a woman he knew earlier, who remembers his odd secret that is a belief of his life would face some catastrophy or spectacular event like "beast in the jungle". Thrilling!
