ABOUT

Novelist Colm Toibin, when asked who his favorite novelist of all time was, answered that it was Henry James.  He explained:

Henry James, for the range of his sympathy and the quality of his prose. For the way in which he dramatizes moral issues while all the time attending to sensuous and stylish questions. For his seriousness about form in his fiction and the way in which he refuses to allow the reader to make easy judgments, for his insisting on nuance, half-light and suggestion, and for his deep understanding of the strangeness and the wavering nature of motive and feeling in human relationships.

From that, a list of what we strive for in everything we make:

Range of sympathy.
Quality of storytelling.
The ability to dramatize moral issues while all the time attending to sensuous and stylish questions.
Seriousness about form, and a refusal to let the audience make easy judgements.
An insistence on nuance, half-light and suggestion.
And a deep understanding of the strangeness and
the wavering nature of motive and feeling in human relationships.
