!!Tropes featured in his !!Other works include:by Henry James contain examples of:



* UnreliableNarrator: His works are often filtered through the perceptions of their point of view subject with a biased or incomplete understanding of the events they perceive.
** In ''What Maise Knew'', the complex romantic lives of two people are perceived by their young daughter, who does not understand most of what is going on.
** ''The Turn of the Screw'' is either a straight ghost story or the ravings of a delusional, murderous woman. This is one of the most famous examples of the trope because the story works just as well either way.

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.

Henry James was an American-born British author of the Victorian Age. Although he became known for writing realist novels about every day life, his works spanned a wide range of subjects and formats. Despite being born and growing up in the United States, he spent most of his adult life in Europe and became a British citizen a year before his death. 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:
