Portret van Henry James (1913) troch John Singer Sargent

Henry James (15 april 1843 - 28 febrewaris 1916) wie in Amerikaansk romanskriuwer.

James' romans wurde beskôge as realistysk, mar hy hat him beynfloedzje litten troch útienrinnende sjenres: reisferhaal (Italian Hours), spoekferhaal (The Turn of the Screw) en de detective (The Aspern Papers). Syn taal is kompleks en poëtysk, mar syn koartere ferhalen binne ienfâldiger skreaun en út te lizzen as syn langere wurken.

Henry James fûn The Ambassadors syn bêste roman, al wurdt dy miening net troch guon kritisy dield. Syn bekendste roman is wierskynlik The Portrait of a Lady. Ferskate romans en ferhalen binne ferfilme. The Turn Of The Screw is bewurke ta in opera troch Benjamin Britten yn 1954.
