'One is never set at rest by Mr. Henry James's novels. His books end as an episode in life ends. You remain with the sense of the life still going on'.

- Joseph Conrad, Henry James: An Appreciation. North American Review, January 1905

"Personne n'est jamais laissé en repos par les romans de M. Henry James. Ses livres se terminent comme se termine un épisode de la vie. Vous restez avec la sensation que la vie avance encore."
