Why was Henry James drawn to the supernatural and what narrative purpose did his repeated use of the ghostly fulfill? Covering a wide range of James's fiction and non-fiction, distinguished James scholars deal with the complex ways in which James's interest in the supernatural blends with his philosophical historical and cultural engagement. This volume is the first compilation of essays on this topic and it offers new and exciting readings of the varied ways in which the ghost story's generic conventions both articulate and interrogate the anxieties of turn-of-the-century Anglo-American culture.
