Honorable justice : the life of Oliver Wendell Holmes by Sheldon M Novick( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Generations of law students have been raised on his inspiring dissents. His book, THE COMMON LAW, still in print after 100 years, dominates the history of legal thought in America. He is still one of the best known justices of the Supreme Court ... yet until now there has been no biography of Oliver Wendall Holmes. Born into mid-19th century Boston society, Holmes grew up knowing everyone. As a young man, he fought in the Civil War and was seriously wounded. He recovered and returned from the war to practice law and teach at Harvard Law School before his appointment to the bench. Holmes was always contrary. In the hysteria surrounding WW I, he stood firm for free speech. Later, bucking the tide of public opinion, he refused to uphold the voting of Southern blacks. - Publisher

Henry James : the young master by Sheldon M Novick( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was more than forty years ago that Leon Edel began to publish what at the time - and for decades later - was accepted as the definitive portrait of Henry James. In the five-volume work, however, James emerged as a somewhat bloodless man of little passion and no courage. But now Sheldon Novick, with his Henry James: The Young Master, has succeeded in bringing James fully to life by showing us a man with boldness of spirit and a profound capacity for affection. We share James's childhood in New York in the mid-nineteenth century, suffer with him through illnesses, sexual encounters, early loves; journey with him to London, Paris, and Rome as he tries to find both professional success and personal fulfillment. And as the world opens to him as an internationally famous writer, we share the experience of writing a series of celebrated novels, culminating with Washington Square (on which the play The Heiress is based) and the masterpiece The Portrait of a Lady

Henry James and homo-erotic desire( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry James and Homo-Erotic Desire is the first book to deal with this subject and marks a paradigm shift in James studies. Sheldon M. Novick, James's most recent biographer, has written an extensive introduction which is now the most substantial biographical discussion of James's homosexuality available. This is complemented by an essay documenting James's friendships with younger men, which includes quotations from previously unpublished love letters. Their subjects include the influence on James of the emergence of a specific concept of the homosexual in Victorian England; James's reactions to the aesthetic movement; and renunciations in the late novels. New, often radical, perspectives on stories and novels from all phases of James's career can be found
