Laura Grimes continues her rocky literary relationship with Henry James, here. After being ready to dump him for good, Grimes's interest was piqued when she discovered that others were enamoured of him -- isn't that so typical? Jealous of these rivals -- her neighbors, no less -- Grimes buckled down with Washington Square last weekend, and discovered that she liked it! Grimes is now hosting a contest to give away a nice little Modern Library edition of Washington Square. To enter, leave a comment to her article addressing specific questions she raises about Washington Square. You have to register to leave comments, but you do not have to subscribe to The Oregonian. The deadline is February 3. Good luck!

You are my new best friend! Henry James would spin this thought into several pages and would be frivolous with comments and independent clauses and run-on sentences and take a magnifying glass to every possible perceived motivation and intricate cause-and-effect. I, on the other hand, simply say thanks and stop by to say hello!ReplyDelete
