Summary

In The Aspern Papers, a cold and ruthless literary biographer travels to Venice on the trail of personal letters belonging to the deceased American poet Jeffrey Aspern.

Will morality confront his personal ambition and literary curiosity?

Great rendition of the 1888 version

A great novella (or, as James would say, a 'tale') given here in the original 1888 version. Most editions today print the later NY edition, so for text-critical geeks this audio version enables ready comparison of the two texts. Well voiced by Adam Sims.
