About This Book
1. The Real Thing
2. The Beast in the Jungle
3. The Jolly Corner
The Real Thing is a short story by Henry James, first published in Black and White magazine in 1892. This parable plays with the reality-illusion dichotomy that fascinated James, especially in the later stages of his career. For the painter who narrates the story, the genuine article proves all too useless for artistic purposes. The story vividly portrays the unfortunate victims of illusion's occasional tendency to become more real than reality.
The Beast in the Jungle is a 1903 novella by Henry James, first published as part of the collection, The Better Sort. Almost universally considered one of James' finest short narratives, this story treats appropriately universal themes: loneliness, fate, love and death. The parable of John Marcher and his peculiar destiny has spoken to many readers who have speculated on the worth and meaning of human life.
The Jolly Corner is a short story by Henry James first published in The English Review in December, 1908. One of James' very best ghost stories, The Jolly Corner describes the adventures of Spencer Brydon as he prowls the now-empty New York house where he grew up. He encounters a "sensation more complex than had ever before found itself consistent with sanity."
