Il Libro

All James’s writings, whether his novels and tales or his criticism, revolve round the two key words of ‘taste’ and ‘vulgarity’. In 1903, in an essay on Émile Zola, he stated more firmly than ever before how essential he regarded the possession of Taste, “deserving here if ever the old-fashioned honour of a capital”, in a writer:
“There is simply no limit, in fine, to the misfortune of being tasteless; it does not merely disfigure the surface and the fringe of your performance -- it eats back into the very heart and enfeebles the sources of life. When you have no taste you have no discretion, which is the conscience of taste, and when you have no discretion you perpetrate books like Rome...”
