Henry James was born in New York City on April 15,1843年。He had three brothers and one sister,他的父母很富有,感谢他们的继承。虽然他没有自己的正式工作,Henry James' father,亨利,used his wealth to move his family abroad when Henry was just twelve years old.他的动机是确保孩子们有最好的学习机会。结果是一个为期四年的欧洲之旅,在那里,家庭为詹姆斯的孩子们寻找最好的学校和导师。Henry Jr.最终成为一个自学成才的年轻人。The influence of his European childhood—as well as his time spent living abroad throughout the majority of his adult years—can be seen in his works,无论是他的写作风格还是他所探索的主题。
