Henry James (1843—1916) was an American author regarded as a key transitional figure between literary realism and literary modernism. In the novel «Watch and Ward» wealthy and leisured Roger Lawrence adopts twelve-year-old Nora Lambert after her father kills himself in the hotel room next to Lawrence's. Roger had refused financial assistance to the man, and he feels remorse. Nora is not a pretty child but she soon starts to develop, as does Roger's idea of eventually marrying her.
