Henry James and the Culture of Publicity
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThroughout his career, Henry James was concerned with such characteristically modern cultural forms as advertising, biography, and the new journalism. Richard Salmon's study situates James's fiction and criticism within the context of contemporary debates surrounding these practices and explores both the nature and politics of James's critique of mass culture.
