The Pupil Audiobook

The Pupil

The Pupil is an excellent tale from James' middle period. Pemberton, a young American with an Oxford education and but little money, takes a job tutoring Morgan Moreen, the 12-year old son of an American couple living in Europe in a style above their income. The family of the pupil is both comic and unfortunate, and the child himself is vividly drawn. The pupil's parents waffle about paying Pemberton the salary to which they'd agreed in their view, he should be satisfied by his life with them, and by the joy of tutoring young Morgan?

Publisher's Summary

The Pupil is an excellent tale from James' middle period. Pemberton, a young American with an Oxford education and but little money, takes a job tutoring Morgan Moreen, the 12-year old son of an American couple living in Europe in a style above their income. The family of the pupil is both comic and unfortunate, and the child himself is vividly drawn. The pupil's parents waffle about paying Pemberton the salary to which they'd agreed in their view, he should be satisfied by his life with them, and by the joy of tutoring young Morgan? Alternately charmed and put off by the family, Pemberton is left to choose between his attachment to his young pupil and his need to make a living.

    Story
    "Too "read" too quickly..."

    A little rushed?
    A little less interpreted than I'm used to...
    Wonderful mastery of the language, style, character psychology, overall "finesse" and exquisite weaving of a suspenseful hidden reality behind the façade of "normal" of bourgeois life...
    Henry James is always a notch above most else. ;)
