The Spoils of Poyn+on is one of the very finest of Henry James' great novels. Less massive Than the monumental works of his last years, it has a pungent directness which has endeared if fo James enthusiasts. Here his extraordinary gifts are splendidly at work in a story that has wide appeal. It is a tale of upper-class English life in the nineties, of The conflic+ between a stubborn mother and the ambitious girl who dominates her only son and of the attempt of another girl, as fine-grained as her rival is coarse, fo retrieves the situation. The novel's theme is a familiar one—— the Things of This World, The "spoils" versus The Things of The spirit — but never has if been handled more brilliantly than in this little masterpiece of a great American writer.
