The Tree of Knowledge
The Tree of Knowledge0 0 5 Forfatter: Henry James
At the core of the story is the idea of an education—the power of knowledge which can destroy all convenient illusions. The narrative refers to the Biblical Tree of Knowledge from which Adam and Eve eat the forbidden fruit.
Henry James (1843 – 1916) is regarded one of the greatest novelists in the English language. Born in the United States, but mainly living and working in Europe, he was largely occupied with the clash of personalities and cultures between the Old World and the New World. He explored this topic in his famous novels 'The Portrait of a Lady' and 'The Wings of the Dove'. James was thrice nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
