The Madonna of the Future
Dela boken    
The Madonna of the Future Henry James - American author Henry James often grappled with weighty topics in his work, and the story ”The Madonna of the Future” -- longer than a typical short story, but shorter than a novella -- is no exception. Framed as an anecdote related among a group of men engaged in post-dinner chitchat, the story deals with an artist whose outsize ambitions and perfectionism have frozen him in a kind of creative paralysis. It's a profoundly thought-provoking tale that prompts important questions about the role of art in the world.
