The Outcry

Серия: "-"

The Outcry is a novel by Henry James published in 1911. This light comedy was originally conceived as a play. James cast the material in a three-actdrama in 1909, but like so many of his plays, it failed to be produced. (There were two posthumous performances in 1917.) In 1911 James converted the play into a novel, which was successful with the public. The Outcry was the last novel he was able to complete before his death in 1916. The storyline concerns the buying up of Britain's art treasures by wealthy foreigners, especially Americans. While hardly a subject of life-and-death significance, James'novel treats the idea in a busy, cheerful, appealing manne Книга представляет собой репринтное издание 1911 года (издательство "New York, C. Scribner's Sons" ). Несмотря на то, что была проведена серьезная работа по восстановлению первоначального качества издания, на некоторых страницах могут обнаружиться небольшие" огрехи" :помарки, кляксы и т. п.
