When impoverished American sculptor Roderick Hudson creates what is described as a work of genius, he is sent to Rome, where he becomes the talk of the city. But Roderick soon loses his inspiration and falls in love with a woman he’ll never be with. Now on a path to self-destruction, can he be saved from himself?

One of Henry James’ first novels, Roderick Hudson is a compelling depiction of an artist whose inflated ambition and temperament gets the better of him.

    " Read in the 70s in a graduate-level seminar I took as an undergraduate English major. Notable among other reasons for introducing the character of Christina Light, who reappeared 11 years later giving her (married) name to the novel The Princess Casamassima. "
