《使节》是亨利·詹姆斯的代表作之一,曾与詹姆斯的另两部长篇小说《鸽翼》和《使节》入选20世纪百大英文小说,并排名前列。小说讲述了主人公斯特瑞塞与优雅知性的法国女人戈斯特瑞相爱却无法相守的故事。

《使节》是美国作家亨利·詹姆斯创作于1903年的长篇小说。小说主人公斯特瑞塞是一名美国使节,作者通过主人公的行动及其精神伴侣戈斯特瑞——一名优雅的法国女人的推动,即通过这种使节式的行走来追寻绝对的尊严和生命充分绽放的空间。

The Ambassadors is a 1903 novel by Henry James, originally published as a serial in the North American Review (NAR). This dark comedy, seen as one of the masterpieces of James's final period, follows the trip of protagonist Lewis Lambert Strether to Europe in pursuit of Chad Newsome, his widowed fiancée's supposedly wayward son; he is to bring the young man back to the family business, but he encounters unexpected complications. The third-person narrative is told exclusively from Strether's point of view.

亨利·詹姆斯(1843年4月15日—1916年2月28日),19世纪美国继霍桑、麦尔维尔之后最伟大的小说家,也是美国乃至世界文学史上的大文豪。詹姆斯的主要作品是小说,此外也写了许多文学评论、游记、传记和剧本。他的小说常写美国人和欧洲人之间交往的问题;成人的罪恶如何影响并摧残了纯洁、聪慧的儿童;物质与精神之间的矛盾;艺术家的孤独,作家和艺术家的生活等。代表作有长篇小说:《美国人》、《一位贵妇的画像》、《鸽翼》、《使节》和《金碗》等。他的创作对20世纪崛起的现代派及后现代派文学有着非常巨大的影响,他被公认为20世纪小说意识流写作技巧的先驱。他对人的行为认识有独到之处,也被认为是心理分析小说的开创者之一。

Henry James, OM (15 April 1843-28 February 1916) was an American-British writer. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. James contributed significantly to literary criticism, particularly in his insistence that writers be allowed the greatest possible freedom in presenting their view of the world. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and possibly unreliable narrators in his own novels and tales brought a new depth and interest to narrative fiction. His theatrical work is thought to have profoundly influenced his later novels and tales.

She had her own hesitation, but "You don't!" she finally returned, setting him again in motion. They went on, but in a few minutes, though while still thinking over what she had said, he once more took out his watch; mechanically, unconsciously and as if made nervous by the mere exhilaration of what struck him as her strange and cynical wit. He looked at the hour without seeing it, and then, on something again said by his companion, had another pause. "You're really in terror of him."
