Portrait of a Lady, The - Henry James

Author: Henry James Narrator: Omc Release Date: April 2020

The Portrait of a Lady is a novel by Henry James, first published as a serial in The Atlantic Monthly and Macmillan's Magazine in 1880–81 and then as a book in 1881. It is one of James's most popular long novels and is regarded by critics as one of his finest. The Portrait of a Lady is the story of a spirited young American woman, Isabel Archer, who, 'confronting her destiny', finds it overwhelming. She inherits a large amount of money and subsequently becomes the victim of Machiavellian scheming by two American expatriates. Like many of James's novels, it is set in Europe, mostly England and Italy. Generally regarded as the masterpiece of James's early period,this novel reflects James's continuing interest in the differences between the New World and the Old, often to the detriment of the former. It also treats in a profound way the themes of personal freedom, responsibility, and betrayal.

Turn of the Screw, The - Henry James

Author: Henry James Narrator: Multiple Narrators Release Date: April 2020

The Turn of the Screw is an 1898 horror novella by Henry James that first appeared in serial format in Collier's Weekly magazine (January 27 – April 16, 1898). In October 1898 it appeared in The Two Magics, a book published by Macmillan in New York City and Heinemann in London. Classified as both gothic fiction and a ghost story, the novella focuses on a governess who, caring for two children at a remote estate, becomes convinced that the grounds are haunted. In the century following its publication, The Turn of the Screw became a cornerstone text of academics who subscribed to New Criticism. The novella has had differing interpretations, often mutually exclusive. Many critics have tried to determine the exact nature of the evil hinted at by the story. However, others have argued that the brilliance of the novella results from its ability to create an intimate sense of confusion and suspense within the reader. The novella has been adapted numerous times in radio drama, film, stage, and television, including a 1950 Broadway play, the 1961 film The Innocents, and a 2020 modern adaptation named The Turning.

El alumno Audiobook

El alumno

Author: Henry James Narrator: Eladio Ramos Release Date: March 2020

Este audiolibro está narrado en castellano. El alumno, de Henry James, se centra en la relación entre un preceptor, su inteligente discípulo y la extravagante familia de éste. Su autor nos guía con exquisita destreza hacia un final tan inesperado como magistral. El tono de la obra, fuertemente emocional, alcanza en determinados pasajes la dignidad de las viejas tragedias griegas. Esta exageración se debe, tal vez, al magnífico desempeño de Henry James en la construcción de la trama. Sus protagonistas, extraordinariamente delineados, los avatares de unas vidas impregnadas de la más pura esencia victoriana, consiguen que James, con su habitual pulso narrativo, intenso pero entretenido, sorprendente pero sutil, componga una novela hermosa e inolvidable. Esta obra maestra de la literatura, prácticamente desconocida y publicada por primera vez en castellano por Editorial Eneida en la colección Confabulaciones, muestra la sutileza y la genialidad literaria de Henry James en toda su plenitud.
