Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE---------------------HENRY JAMES, SENIOR: A SELECTION OF HIS WRITINGS, Edited by Giles Gunn.
Henry James Senior was a Swedenborgian, believing in spiritual presences after an encounter with "some damned shape squatting invisible to me within the precincts of my room ... raying out from his fetid personality influences fatal to life" in 1844. (Henry James Sr., Vastation and the Uses of Swedenborg, in Henry James Senior: A Selection of his Writings, ed. Giles Gunn, 1974, p.54-5)
He publicly lectured and privately impressed on his children that men were saved by the "higher or more spiritual scope" of women.
Giles Gunn is a Professor of English and of Global and International Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1967, and his central interests include American literature; literary theory and criticism; American cultural and religious studies; global literature and culture; literature and religion; and literature and philosophy.
