James, Henry: The Pupil, v.1, 6 April 2008.

A short story in eight chapters, first published in 1891. This is the 1916 edition.

From Wikipedia:
The Pupil is a short story by Henry James, first published in Longman's Magazine in 1891. It is the emotional story of a precocious young boy growing up in a mendacious and dishonorable family. He befriends his tutor, who is the only adult in his life that he can trust. James presents their relationship with sympathy and insight, and the story reaches what some would consider the status of classical tragedy.
“Critic Robert Gale flatly called The Pupil ‘one of the finest short stories ever written,’ and few commentators have disagreed. The brilliant and wise prose, the unforgettable portraits of Morgan, Pemberton and the entire Moreen family, and the genuine, deeply affecting tragedy of the conclusion all make this one of the world's most impressive short narratives. Mortimer Adler rightly included the story in his ‘Gateway to the Great Books’ series.”

Sort of related to this...

Last year, Fictionwise had the Nebula Award nominees for download for free. I think they do this every year. One of the nominees for last year was entitled "This One's For You, Henry James". Worth a read.
