Daily Dose

From The Golden Bowl, by Henry James


"James was not a moralist, although he had a special interest in morality as a kind of poetics.  He relished what right and wrong looked like and sounded like; he became a connoisseur of these concepts for their shape, their aura.  And of course he loved what he could do with them."

From the introduction by Colm Toibin to the Folio Society edition
