James, Henry: The Awkward Age, v.1, 14 Jan 2008.
A novel of 1899.
Is it the young people who are at an awkward age? Or their elders who are awkward as they age? Or maybe it is the epoch? Decide for yourself.
“The Awkward Age is a novel by Henry James, first published as a serial in Harper's Weekly in 1898-1899 and then as a book later in 1899. Originally conceived as a brief, light story about the complications created in her family's social set by a young girl coming of age, the novel expanded into a general treatment of decadence and corruption in English fin de siècle life. James presents the novel almost entirely in dialogue, an experiment that adds to the immediacy of the scenes but also creates serious ambiguities about characters and their motives.”
