Book Jacket Status: Jacketed). Of the three late masterpieces that crown the extraordinary literary achievement of Henry James, The Wings of the Dove (1902) is at once the most personal and the most elemental. James drew on the memory of a beloved cousin who died young to create one of the three central characters, Milly Theale, an heiress with a short time to live and a passion for experiencing life to its fullest. The density of the prose isn't Henry James trying to be difficult. This is an author (probably in many conversations and correspondences with his brother, the great psychologist William James) determined to express the very complicated psychology of complex human beings, a psychology that steps forward and backward and sideways.
Henry James (1843-1916), son of Henry James Sr. and brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American-born author and literary critic of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He spent much of his life in Europe and became a British subject shortly before his death. Some have remarked that the books of James's later period (to which The Wings of the Dove belongs) are more obscure and harder to read than his earlier books but I disagree. I don't think The Wings of the Dove is any more difficult to read and understand than A Portrait of a Lady (a novel of his 'social' period) and it is (for me at least ) far more rewarding. 6 people found this helpful.
