About the Book

American author Henry James's short story "The Figure in the Carpet" was initially published in 1896 and is sometimes regarded as a novel. The story is recounted in the first person; the unnamed narrator meets his favorite author and becomes fixated on learning the hidden meaning or purpose behind each of the author's works. "The Figure in the Carpet's" significance has eluded precise interpretation. Ford Madox Ford stated in his book Henry James (1913) that once it was released, James's contemporaries embarked on a search for the Figure as a recognizably physical being. We all look for the Figure in the Carpet these days. Eliot said in the introduction to his 1941 book A Choice of Kipling's Verse. It's possible that James's Figure is an actual thing that, like a talisman, makes it easier to understand his own creation. Vereker admits to the narrator that all of his detractors have missed his point, which is "Immense." Corvick and his fiancée, Gwendolen, pursue "the trick" without success until they are married. The knowledge of his late wife's major "secret" shocks and humiliates the widower husband. This novel by Henry James is written by Sir Henry James in interesting short stories.
