The Death of the Lion has enjoyed generally favorable criticism over the decades. Reviewers have admired the tale's sardonic, tartly comic view of literary "lionization" by unknowing and careless admirers, who may have only the slightest (if any) acquaintance with the lionized author's works.

《名流之死》发表于1894年,是亨利·詹姆斯所著的一部短篇小说。小说主人公要撰写一篇关于尼尔的文章,为了能使作品更真实,他与尼尔相处了一个星期,期间还阅读了尼尔的一些作品。但文章完成之后,却因各种理由无法顺利刊登发表……小说由此展开充满讽刺和悲剧意味的描述。该小说带有一定的自传意味。

The Death of the Lion is an 1894 short story by Henry James. Frank Kermode in his introduction to a Penguin collection which includes the story, appreciated James' "achievement of rendering a tragic donnée in the mode of irony and even, at moments, of farce." The story clearly has autobiographical resonance, as James himself states in the Notebook entry. But the story's style eliminates any hint of self-pity.

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.

I remember how he looked at me—quite, to begin with, as if he had never heard of this celebrity, who indeed at that moment was by no means in the centre of the heavens; and even when I had knowingly explained he expressed but little confidence in the demand for any such stuff.
