Henry James was born on 15 April 1843 and is regarded as one of the great literary figures of 19th Century writing. Born in New York, he moved between there and Europe, being tutored in Geneva, London, Paris, Bologna, and Bonn. At the age of 19 he briefly attended Harvard Law School, but preferred reading literature to studying law and settled the next year in England. He became a British subject in 1915, a year before his death on 28th February 1916. As well as an outstanding author he was also a dramatist, travel writer and most passionately, a literary critic. He advocated that all writers should be allowed the greatest possible freedom in presenting their view of the world. His voluminous writing as a literary critic was large in scope and textured in its depth. In this volume he writes a review of the famed Victorian poet Laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson.
