    " This was my first time reading Henry James. It certainly proved to be quite difficult at the start. After getting into the rhythm of each story it becomes much easier to read. Although, I couldn't read it when I was tired or preoccupied. "

    " What I really wanted was "The Pupil," but it wasn't on this silly site. But I read that and The Beast in the Jungle in the same collection. And The Pupil was great. And The Beast In The Jungle was only moderately less great. So here it is. "

    " I read this book for a class on gender and culture in literature, alongside Eve Sedwick's essay from The Epistemology of the Closet -- the essay helps me read the title story as an attempt to provide a space for legibility of a marginalized discourse. I recommend both texts. "
