Figure in the CarpetEdel takes a chronological approach to his subject beginning with sharp portraits of Henry James Sr and Mary Walsh before taking in the years of their son s life from 1843 to 1870 The first installment of this five volume work ends with the death of Minny Temple James s beloved young cousin and with his return to Boston after a year s travel in EuropeThe chronological narrative is occasionally interrupted by sidebar discussions of significant events in young James s life for instance his nightmare based on his experience of the Louvre These discussions highlight what Edel sees as the themes of this writer s life The nightmare illuminated by other incidents illustrates the fierce sibling rivalry between William and Henry the latter obsessed with being second born and so with being inferior to the elderAnother theme is James s fear of female sexuality a fear his biographer lays at the door of not uite persuasively his mother s vampirish consumption of his father s energies The same fear emasculates any possible courtship of Minny Temple and genuine though Henry s grief was for this young woman her death also provided his mind and his art with an ideal image I am disappointed that Edel does not discuss James s sexual feelings for menA third theme is Henry s obscure hurt which Edel settles in favor of a lower back injury and not according to rumors that solidified into fact castration Henry or Harry as he was nicknamed partly to distinguish him from his dad suffered his injury at the outbreak of the Civil War which he like his older brother sat out His younger brothers Bob and Wilkie did enlist and this probably strengthened Harry s self conception of feminized passivityIn lucid prose Edel s story telling is well paced though the seemingly endless succession of European hotels and houses through which Henry was dragged up by his father is a little wearying to read Edel makes copious but not non critical use of James s own memoirs Notes of a Son and Brother and A Small Boy as well as letters written by James and various family members and friends Where appropriate he points out the links between life and art such as the governess who probably inspired the same character in The Turn of the Screw or obviously Minny Temple who was the inspiration for Milly Theale in The Wings of a DoveBeyond characters Edel is also uick to trace in James s carpet of writing the patterns in the life Such explanations of life and art are what we have come to expect of biographies but their effect runs counter to Edel s avowed aim as given in an epigraph uoting James To live over people s lives is nothing unless we live over their perceptions live over the growth the change the varying intensity of the same since it was by these things they themselves lived To explain is not uite the same as to live over What is wonderful in James s writing is the tone the shape the size of his perceptions and explanation like narrative must baffle itself before it can touch perception

This is the first volume of Leon Edel s monumental and exhaustive biography of Henry James Consisting of five volumes and over 2000 pages it took Edel almost twenty years to complete as the first volume was published in 1953 and the last in 1972I have read and continue to read many biographies of authors Most of them I really enjoy while some are not so great For example I recently tried to read Persona A Biography of Yukio Mishima and gave up after 200 pages as it just didn t hold my interest This biography of Henry James however was a pleasure to read with the writing flowing beautifully So I look forward to reading the remaining volumes I own volumes 24 and 5 and have checked out the other two volumes from the Vancouver libraryI must admit I have only read two of the novels by Henry James The Wings of the Dove which I found pretty heavy going and The Princess Casamassima which I really enjoyed I do plan on reading all of his work which is uite substantial as in addition to novels he wrote numerous short stories travel memoirs and literary criticism as well as plays which I shall probably skip as I don t enjoy reading playsAnyway if you are a fan of Henry James and you haven t read these biographies I m sure you would find them of interest

The Fire that Fueled the Writings of Henry James This review of the first volume of Edel s biography covers James s childhood and young manhood up to 1870 when in his late twenties he had thoroughly settled on a career as a writer Edel has a strong carefully documented thesis Henry James suffered from second brother syndrome Since he could never precede the arrival in the world of his older brother the future philosopher William James he thought of himself as incapable of ever surpassing William in any way at all Henry therefore felt of necessity inadeuate especially as a man Also he saw his father as weak compared to his mother because when she died Henry Senior could hardly carry on without her Henry Junior imagined that if he himself ever married his father s incapacity might take hold of him as well Hence the fear of women the marriage bed and marriage itself that afflicts so many of the heroes of Henry James s fiction Henry s two younger brothers Wilkie and Bob along with two of his youthful male friends Oliver Wendell Holmes the future Supreme Court Justice and John Chipman Gray later a distinguished jurist all served in the Civil War Henry who did not admitted that during a stay in New Hampshire s White Mountains he felt hopelessly lacking in masculinity by comparison with the heroic veterans Holmes and Gray That was especially true when the three of them were in the company of Mary Minny Temple the head tossing woman who appears to have inspired the portraits of so many of James s most attractive fictional heroines Isabel Archer for example James s tactic in dealing with his sense of sexual inadeuacy was to develop what Edel calls a fa ade of passivity an image of non competitive observation as though he were above the mate finding fray In preparation for his anticipated literary career Henry fed his restrained sexual energy with a staggering amount of reading and the discipline of long hours of writing As 1870 approached and he decided definitely on being a writer he gradually poured out his damned up energy in the flood of lifelong productivity that constitutes his work
