The Figure in the Carpet
With an Appreciation by Joseph Conrad
The Figure in the Carpet was first published in the periodical «Cosmopolis» in 1896. In the same year, the same novel appeared both in England and in the USA in a volume titled Embarrassments.
Henry James (1843–1916), who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912 and 1916, was American but he spent the most of his career in Britain. He is still one of the most important writers of the 19th-century.
This book contains a special note on Henry James by Joseph Conrad (Henry James. An appreciation, 1905) and a detailed bibliography including all the publications of the Author.
This interactive digital edition includes Interactive Notes and Chapters, News about the Author, News about the Book, a very interesting Tag cloud of the Book and a link to connect to the Goodreads community to ask questions and share comments and opinions.
