«Si no puedes creer en ellos, no los molestes. .. »

Si bien Henry James fue un refinado prosista de dramas costumbristas, no menos amazing es su aportación al ámbito de l. a. intriga y el suspense. Profundamente interesado en el terreno de lo sobrenatural, no dejó sin explorar ningún tipo de experiencia extrasensorial, ni se abstuvo de analizar al detalle los demonios que, en cualesquiera formas, perturban al ser humano.

Este volumen recoge el grueso de su narrativa breve fantástica y fantasmagórica. Precede a los relatos el magistral estudio de Leon Edel -considerado unánimemente el mayor especialista en l. a. obra de James del siglo XX-, quien también redactó una minuciosa nota preliminar para cada uno de ellos. Como colofón, reproducimos el ensayo del propio James «¿Hay vida después de los angeles muerte? », que refleja las inquietudes del autor sobre el más allá.

Reseña:
«Fantasmas es los angeles selección más completa de narrativa de terror de Henry James y constituye l. a. mejor manera de asomarse a su obra gótica. »
P. Unamuno, El Mundo

«Henry James siempre es inspirador y decididamente contemporáneo. Jaume Bonfill, de Penguin Clásicos afirma que su relevancia no solo es histórica, ya que tiene "recursos y sorpresas que los lectores de hoy siguen percibiendo como novedosos, y que asimismo aún ponen en práctica, por ejemplo, los guionistas de cine o televisión". »
Ana Llurba, Letras Libres

«A él le interesa el drama psicológico, el desgarro o los angeles epifanía, de ahí tantas adaptaciones al cine. »
Núria Escur, l. a. Vanguardia

Sample text

The general leniency of the judicial procedure here, and the utter absence of all repressive measures, are a scandal to Europe. What is wished for just now is the accentuation of the unrest—of the fermentation which undoubtedly exists—” “Undoubtedly, undoubtedly,” broke in Mr. Verloc in a deep, deferential bass of an oratorical quality, so utterly different from the tone in which he had spoken before that his interlocutor remained profoundly surprised. “It exists to a dangerous degree. ” “Your reports for the last twelve months,” State Councillor Wurmt began in his gentle and dispassionate tone, “have been read by me.

Vladimir raised a large, white, plump hand. “Ah, yes. The unlucky attachment—of your youth. ” The doleful change in Mr. Verloc’s physiognomy, the momentary drooping of his whole person, confessed that such was the regrettable case. Mr. Vladimir’s hand clasped the ankle reposing on his knee. The sock was of dark blue silk. “You see, that was not very clever of you. ” Mr. Verloc intimated in a throaty, veiled murmur that he was no longer young. “Oh! That’s a failing which age does not cure,” Mr. Vladimir remarked, with sinister familiarity.

Verloc immobilizing his glance in that direction saw at first only black clothes, the bald top of a head, and a drooping dark grey whisker on each side of a pair of wrinkled hands. The person who had entered was holding a batch of papers before his eyes and walked up to the table with a rather mincing step, turning the papers over the while. Privy Councillor Wurmt, Chancellor d’Ambassade, was rather shortsighted. This meritorious official, laying the papers on the table, disclosed a face of pasty complexion and of melancholy ugliness surrounded by a lot of fine, long dark grey hairs, barred heavily by thick and bushy eyebrows.
