Henry James: The Contemporary Reviews presents the most thorough gathering of newspaper and magazine reviews of James' work ever assembled. This collection also reprints many rarely seen notices written by the most important women reviewers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Each chapter ends with a checklist of additional reviews not presented here. The introduction surveys the major themes of the reviews and also shows how they personally influenced James and his work.

Review of the hardback: 'The most complete collection yet published of contemporary British and American magazines and newspaper reviews of James's writings. ... The introduction develops a valuable overview of James's contemporary critical reception and his own shifting and ambivalent response to reviews. This indispensable volume will be of permanent value to James' studies.' The Henry James Review
"All libraries serving serious students of litertaure should have these volumes." Q. Grigg, Choice
"...[Henry James: The Contemporary Reviews] is more generally useful than its predecessors....[Hayes] improves upon them by printing the full texts of reviews (`overlong quotations' have been `abbreviated'), appending checklists of additional reviews for each book, and, in general, offering the `most thorough gathering' of newspaper and magazine reviews of James's fiction `ever assembled.'" Rayburn S. Moore, Resources for American Literary Study
