I'm glad I wasn't the only one who couldn't make head or tail out of that particular section.

It's a common experience among readers of James. :-) Mind you, I do like some of his work -- especially his earlier work. But unfortunately, the more he wrote, the more convoluted he got.

Edith Wharton wrote the funniest parody of him -- I have it here in my LiveJournal:

Hahaha! That was great!

James is such a meanie. It's like he made it a point to say bad things about every writer that came before him. Like he's so great... (and thank you for Wharton's parody!)

Oh no he didn't! O_O Humbug!

Love this! Thanks for Betsey Trotwooding him!
