Henry James (1843-1916) was an America-born English writer whose novels, short stories and letters established the foundation of the modernist movement in twentieth century fiction and poetry. His career, one of the most significant and influential in English literature, spanned over five decades and resulted in a body of work that has had a profound impact on generations of writers. Born in New York, but educated in France, Germany, England and Switzerland, James often explored the cultural discord between the Old World (Europe) and the New World (United States) in his writings. Included in this fourth volume of "The Complete Tales of Henry James" are the stories published between 1876 and 1882, at the beginning of James' rise to popularity: "Crawford's Consistency," "The Ghostly Rental," "Four Meetings," "Rose-Agathe," the popular "Daisy Miller: A Study," "Longstaff's Marriage," "An International Episode," "The Pension Beaurepas," "The Diary of a Man of Fifty," "A Bundle of Letters," and "The Point of View."
