Abstract

This article is a comparison of one of Ford Madox Ford's most Jamesian fictions, his Edwardian novel A Call, and Henry James' well-known short story, 'The Beast in the Jungle'. It focuses on the question of knowledge in both texts - its type, quality and representation. Both writers have been described as in pursuit of the 'world's epistemological problems' and in this article I compare some of the results.
