A Review of Roderick Hudson

Henry James's Roderick Hudson reviewed.

While I can't agree with the blogger's view of James's sexuality (which I think, at best is hotly contested--taking an author with an agenda himself (Colm Toibin) and using that as "insight" into James is, at best, questionable--and Leon Edel is not so easily dismissed or dismissable as is implied here), there are interesting points in this review.  I've not read Roderick Hudson myself, but it certainly sounds like the template for all of James's career.
