Publisher's Summary

This story represents one of the archetypal and sorrowful dilemmas of an artist, which is the inability to live out their creative life on a realistic plane. As we follow the story we find the artist talking grandiosely about his magnificent artwork ideals, the values of what encompasses great works and his intimate studies of the great works as it relates to his own life. Sadly we find out that execution was not a part of his romantic plan. Then as you follow this modern tragedy what you will find is the enduring quality of the artistic soul as it clashes with the reality of modernity.

Very poor narrator

I love Henry James, but this speaker does a terrible job. He sounds like he should be in advertising. A reader of James should know how to pronounce Italian, French and German words and names. It's not that difficult. Also, all the obscure words which James loves to write.
