This thesis studies the criticism written since 1944 that deals with Henry James's short story"The Jolly Corner". In analyzing the criticism, three main areas of discussion are covered: the tale as an autobiographical presentation of James's attitudes and experiences; an autobiographical - Freudian study of Henry James, as revelaed through the protagonis, Spencer Brydon; and the technique James utilized in writing the tale as a deliberate 'ghost' story, centering on a man discovering his true self.
