About this product
- DescriptionTheodora Bosanquet was Henry James's secretary from 1907 until his death in 1916, one of the most significant periods of his long writing career. Her memoir Henry James at Work , originally published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press in 1924, recounts Bosanquet's association with James and provides a lively and engaging commentary on James's milieu, preferences, and attitudes, as well as on his process of writing and revision. Bosanquet is an intelligent and observant witness and reporter, and her objective and comparatively unbiased point of view makes the memoir especially valuable. This enlarged and antated edition rescues Bosanquet from the shadows of literary history and shows her to be a fascinating figure in her own right, a skilled writer and editor, an early feminist, and a contemporary of the Bloomsbury literary community. The book is also enhanced by an essay about Bosanquet and her circle, and fascinating snippets from her diaries and letters, w in the Harvard University archives.
- Author BiographyTheodora Bosanquet was 27 and Henry James 64 when he hired her as his secretary in 1907. The well-educated and dedicated Bosanquet quickly became indispensable to James. Following James's death she became Executive Secretary of the International Federation of University Women, and traveled extensively in support of the women's suffrage movement. From 1935 to 1958 she was literary editor, then director, of the publication Time and Tide. Lyall H. Powers is Professor of English Emeritus at the University of Michigan, and author of numerous books, including Alien Heart: The Life and Work of Margaret Laurence.
