About the Book

''The Aspern Papers'' was first published by an American author known as Henry James, in The Atlantic Monthly in 1888. Eventually, the novel was published. The Aspern Papers, one of Henry James's most well-known and lauded lengthier stories, is based on letters Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote to Mary Shelley's stepsister, Claire Clairmont, who kept them until she passed away. The Aspern Papers, a thriller set in Venice, is an example of James's ability to build suspense without ever abandoning the growth of his characters. To discover Juliana Bordereau, an unidentified narrator travels to Venice. The narrator flees after Juliana calls him a "publishing scoundrel" and collapses. The narrator of ''The Aspern Papers'' is presented as a "publishing scoundrel", but generates sympathy for the narrator as he tries to work the papers loose from Juliana. Miss Tita is ashamed of her marriage proposal to the narrator but implies she does exactly the right thing by depriving him of the papers. An unnamed narrator tells the story of his obsessional search for some letters and other personal papers that belonged to the late Romantic poet Jeffrey Aspern in this timeless novella from 1888.
