Added DiffLines:

* BritishStuffiness: Subverted. James often depicted American characters who were as stuffy as (and sometimes more stuffy than) their British counterparts.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The short story "The Real Thing" deserves to be a TropeCodifier: the narrator is an artist who wants to paint a picture of a fictional upper-class family, and who's delighted when he's approached by a down-at-heel but real-life upper-class couple who need cash and are willing to be models for him. He soon finds that they're useless models because they're incapable of seeming like they're who they are, and he goes back to hiring working-class men and women, who are far more relaxed as subjects and who can seem like they're anyone he wants them to be.

Accordingly, one of his favorite subjects was the cultural and psychological difference between the denizens of the old world and the new. His notable works include:
