    The Aspern Papers PDF/EPUB ´ The Aspern Kindle - aspern book, papers pdf, The Aspern epub, The Aspern Papers PDFIn the section of his Moral Discourses entitled How a person can preserve their proper character in any situation the Stoic philosopher Epictetus says “You are the one who knows yourself – which is to say you know how much you are worth in your own estimation and therefore at what price you will sell yourself; because people sell themselves at different rates Taking account of the value of externals you see comes at some cost to the value of one’s own character” I cite this uote since in my reading of this Henry James novella we are asked to ponder just this uestion as we follow the narrator’s uest for papers and letters penned by the late great poet Jeffrey AspernThe first few chapters are like a work of fiction writ

    The Aspern Papers PDF/EPUB ´ The Aspern Kindle - aspern book, papers pdf, The Aspern epub, The Aspern Papers PDFI generally do not like to discuss the plot in a review And I will not in this one either But apart from delighting in James’ prose and in his superb ability to characterize and develop personalities reading this novella has made me think about what makes a good storyFor I was captured by the suspense James created out of a relatively simple situationWhat makes a good plot It certainly needs a structure a kind of frame that gives it independence and self sufficiency That means it demands its own space It also reuires to move along time and to make the reader want to press on that sensation of progress or rather to want the waiting and the anxious curiosity disappear and time to evaporate And for this an illusion of necessity has to be created when the story unfolds for it has to surprise and satisfy him James builds up the suspense by playing with the elasticity of time He has us waiting He makes us partic

    The Aspern Papers PDF/EPUB ´ The Aspern Kindle - aspern book, papers pdf, The Aspern epub, The Aspern Papers PDFWhat did I think It's really hard to think feeling weak in the presence of sheer beauty having your breath taken away and being hypnotisedTwo weeks laterNot much has changed since I finished reading I still feel almost as infatuated with this novella as the nameless narrator was obsessed with Jeffrey Aspern's papers I am constantly not capable of ‘Jola thinks rationally’ mode so instead of sharing logical musings I will tell you what happened when I was reading this amazing book by Henry James who was absent from Linda Grant’s murdered library She explains 'I have never been able to remember the beginning of his sent

    The Aspern Papers PDF/EPUB ´ The Aspern Kindle - aspern book, papers pdf, The Aspern epub, The Aspern Papers PDFI must admit that Nabokov is completely spot on in his criticism of The Aspern Papers about which he complains in 1941 letter to Edmund WilsonYesterday I read The Aspern Papers No He writes with a very sharp nib and the ink is very pale and there is very little of it in his inkpotThe style is artistic but it is not the style of an artistHe has charm as the weak blond prose of Turgenev has but that’s about allI had recalled while reading The Aspern Papers a negative reference to it in the The Nabokov Wilson Letters but not until I consulted the letters did I realize how perfectly Nabokov nailed the anemia of the novella’s

    The Aspern Papers PDF/EPUB ´ The Aspern Kindle - aspern book, papers pdf, The Aspern epub, The Aspern Papers PDFI have very mixed feelings about this novella I have never read any of Henry James’ books before but upon advice it was suggested that I start with one of his novellas So I decided upon this book as there are only eighty pages and it seemed as good a place as ever to startI actually don’t like Venice as a place and so I’m sure I’ll be called a philistine I went in the month of December many years ago with an aged aunt which did not auger well It was windy the pigeons in St Mark’s suare were a real nuisan

    The Aspern Papers PDF/EPUB ´ The Aspern Kindle - aspern book, papers pdf, The Aspern epub, The Aspern Papers PDFThe Aspern Papers is a fictional story inspired by the letters Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote to Mary Shelley's stepsister Claire Clairmont who saved them until she died Source WikiI find it interesting to observe what Henry James’ imagination has then invented All the characters are fictional He draws a story where two literary critics believing that letters written by the famed but long time deceased poet Jeffrey Aspern are in the keeping of the poet’s former lover They invent a plan to get their hands on them The first critic writes a letter to the poet’s lover He is rebuffed They agree the second critic should go and visit the now very old lady She is living in a h

    The Aspern Papers PDF/EPUB ´ The Aspern Kindle - aspern book, papers pdf, The Aspern epub, The Aspern Papers PDFOriginally published in 1888 this short novel reads like a contemporary mystery or thriller James' prose is beautiful and complex like many of his peers of the day but does not feel as weighted down In fact the use of candles and other time indicators aside one could easily convince me Aspern was recently written by one of today's better writers To be sure James writes suspense and surprise endings as well as any genre author If you've read Turn of the Screw this won't come as a surprise All told if you are a genre reader who is looking to introduce classic literature into your reading you could do worse than to start here A
