The Rhetorical Logic of Henry James

Front Cover
Louisiana State University Press, 1999 - Literary Criticism - 176 pages
In this lucid, sophisticated reading of seven of Henry James's major novels, Sheila Teahan employs current rhetorical theory to strip previous criticism of some long-held assumptions and advance a new understanding of the writer's narrative technique. With insight and originality she explores James's concept of "the center of consciousness" as a rhetorical structure, and in doing so she illuminates a significant pattern of plotting and figurative language in his works.
