New take on Henry James

In Henry James and the Queerness of Style, Boston College Associate Professor of English Kevin Ohi asserts that to read Henry James—particularly the late texts—is to confront the queer potential of style and the traces it leaves on the literary life. Unlike other critics, Ohi maintains that James’s queerness is found in many elements of his style, with belatedness as a thematic marker. His book presents original readings of a series of late Jamesian texts, and according to the publisher, represents an exciting possibility for future queer theory and literary studies.
