Critical sites about The Portrait of a Lady

The Portrait of a Lady and Dr. Breen’s Practice
“Possibly, Mr. James’s novel (The Portrait of a Lady, by Henry James, Jr. Houghton, Mifflin & Co. 1882) suffers less than some others might from being read in fragmentary form, for the minute finish of touch with which the lines in the portrait are applied meets the reader’s eye with new power every time that he takes up the story after a fall upon other work; yet this very refinement of manipulation may lead one to overlook the larger consistency of the Whole figure. It is worthwhile to step back a few paces, and fail for a moment to see each individual stroke of the brush.”
Contains: Review
From: The Atlantic Monthly January 1882; Volume 50, No. 1
