Reviews - What do customers think about The Pupil (Large Print)?

"He had given himself away to a band of adventurers." (p.34)  Jul 23, 2001
This longish short story tells the tale of a young teacher hired by a "...housefull of bohemians that wanted tremendously to be Philistines." He's quite taken with his pupil, a young man who returns the affection of his teacher and sees through his parent's social climbing ways.

It is the usual world of Henry James, monied turn of the centry Europe, although in this instance the Ameicans abroad are not-so-innocent and not-so-monied. And while there is a reasonable amount of action in the story, no one is going to confuse it with Dashiell Hammett. Perhaps Proust on one of his less verbose days.

The strength of the story is nuance. The negotiations between the mother and the teacher are especially strong and a classic Jamesian quote is contained in the only point of view change from the teacher's that I recall in the story: "If Mr. Moreen hadn't have been such a man of the world he would have perhaps have spoken of the freedom of such neckties on the part of a subordinate."

Unusual James  Mar 26, 2000
This is a great tale from James' middle period. It's also, from my experience of James (Portrait, Wings of the Dove, and about a dozen short novels and stories), not what I expect from him. The family of the eponymous pupil is a great grotesque creation, comic and unfortunate, and the child himself is vividly drawn. Enjoy.
