Philip Horne's Henry James and Revision is one of the better studies this year and also as deeply satisfying a treatment of this important Jamesian issue as I have read. Second, Horne exhibits simply exquisite critical acumen in his close reading of James's revisions, especially very subtle ones

For freshness of voice, firmness of purpose (if a firmness always subject to scruples and second thoughts), and general delight on the page, the memoirs are fully alive to the contemporary reader. James’s memoirs have a shimmer, a charm, and an openhearted immediacy.

At the height of his career and the zenith of his creative powers, Henry James returned to works he had written up to thirty-five years before and "wrote them over" for the New York edition of his novels and tales (1907-1909). The first detailed study of the subject, this book uses new material to tell the story of James's heroic renewed commitment to his oeuvre. It examines the revision of particular works, shedding new light on interpretative controversies (especially with The Portrait of a Lady and Daisy Miller), and attends to questions of principle raised by the paradoxical processes of the reviser. Revealing James's painful struggle for perfection, the study illuminates his genius as a framer of sentences and a master of dramatic nuance. With both critical and biographical approaches, this vivid portrait of James's achievement will appeal to students of James and the novel.
