A challenge is proffered, a battle of wits begins, as does a descent into dark imaginings. Russell Wakefield". M. R. James was a prolific and hugely successful author, now credited with having redefined the ghost story for the 20th century by abandoning many of the formal Gothic clichés of his predecessors and using more realistic contemporary settings. The Collected Ghost Stories of M. R. James is the title of M. R. James ' omnibus collection of ghost stories, published in , bringing together all but four of his ghost stories (which had yet to be published). Montague Rhodes James (–) was a medievalist scholar; Provost of King's College, Cambridge. Montague Rhodes James was born on 1st August , and spent his early years at the Rectory in Great Livermere, Suffolk, owing to his father Herbert’s occupation as the rector of St. Peter’s Church in the village. "Montague Rhodes James has an intelligent and scientific knowledge of human nerves and feelings; and knows just how to apportion statement, imagery, and subtle suggestions in order to secure the best results with his readers.". Montague Rhodes James OM FBA (1 August – 12 June ) was an English author, medievalist scholar and provost of King's College, Cambridge (–), and of Eton College (–). He was Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge (–15).
However, James's protagonists and plots tend to reflect his own antiquarian interests. Accordingly, he is known as the originator of the "antiquarian ghost story".
James was born in a clergy house in Goodnestone, Dover , Kent , England, although his parents had associations with Aldeburgh in Suffolk.
In September he arrived as a boarder at Temple Grove School , one of the leading boys' preparatory schools of the day. Apart from medieval subjects, James toured Europe often, including a memorable tour of France in a Cheylesmore tricycle ,  studied the classics and appeared very successfully in a staging of Aristophanes ' play The Birds , with music by Hubert Parry.
His ability as an actor was also apparent when he read his new ghost stories to friends at Christmas time. James is best known for his ghost stories, but his work as a medievalist scholar was prodigious and remains highly respected in scholarly circles.
Indeed, the success of his stories was founded on his antiquarian talents and knowledge. His discovery of a manuscript fragment led to excavations in the ruins of the abbey at Bury St Edmunds , West Suffolk, in , in which the graves of several twelfth-century abbots described by Jocelyn de Brakelond a contemporary chronicler were rediscovered, having been lost since the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
He catalogued many of the manuscript libraries of the colleges of the University of Cambridge. Among his other scholarly works, he wrote The Apocalypse in Art , which placed the English Apocalypse manuscripts into families.
He also translated the New Testament apocrypha and contributed to the Encyclopaedia Biblica His ability to wear his learning lightly is apparent in his Suffolk and Norfolk Dent, , in which a great deal of knowledge is presented in a popular and accessible form, and in Abbeys Great Western Railway , James also achieved a great deal during his directorship of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge — He managed to secure a large number of important paintings and manuscripts, including notable portraits by Titian.
James was Provost of Eton College from to He died in age 73 and was buried in Eton town cemetery. The first hardback collected edition appeared in Many of the tales were written as Christmas Eve entertainments and read aloud to friends.
James perfected a method of story-telling which has since become known as Jamesian. The classic Jamesian tale usually includes the following elements:.
According to James, the story must "put the reader into the position of saying to himself, 'If I'm not very careful, something of this kind may happen to me!
He summed up his approach in his foreword to the anthology Ghosts and Marvels : "Two ingredients most valuable in the concocting of a ghost story are, to me, the atmosphere and the nicely managed crescendo.
Let us, then, be introduced to the actors in a placid way; let us see them going about their ordinary business, undisturbed by forebodings, pleased with their surroundings; and into this calm environment let the ominous thing put out its head, unobtrusively at first, and then more insistently, until it holds the stage.
He also noted: "Another requisite, in my opinion, is that the ghost should be malevolent or odious: amiable and helpful apparitions are all very well in fairy tales or in local legends, but I have no use for them in a fictitious ghost story.
Despite his suggestion in the essay "Stories I Have Tried to Write" that writers employ reticence in their work, many of James's tales depict scenes and images of savage and often disturbing violence.
For example, in "Lost Hearts", pubescent children are taken in by a sinister dabbler in the occult who cuts their hearts from their still-living bodies.
In a essay, James stated:. Reticence may be an elderly doctrine to preach, yet from the artistic point of view, I am sure it is a sound one.
Reticence conduces to effect, blatancy ruins it, and there is much blatancy in a lot of recent stories. They drag in sex too, which is a fatal mistake; sex is tiresome enough in the novels; in a ghost story, or as the backbone of a ghost story, I have no patience with it.
At the same time don't let us be mild and drab. Malevolence and terror, the glare of evil faces, 'the stony grin of unearthly malice', pursuing forms in darkness, and 'long-drawn, distant screams', are all in place, and so is a modicum of blood, shed with deliberation and carefully husbanded; the weltering and wallowing that I too often encounter merely recall the methods of M G Lewis.
Although not overtly sexual, plots of this nature have been perceived as unintentional metaphors of the Freudian variety.
James's biographer Michael Cox wrote in M. James: An Informal Portrait , "One need not be a professional psychoanalyst to see the ghost stories as some release from feelings held in check.
Other critics have seen complex psychological undercurrents in James's work. James , "In an age where every man is his own psychologist, M.
James looks like rich and promising material. There must have been times when it was hard to be Monty James. In addition to writing his own stories, James championed the works of Sheridan Le Fanu , whom he viewed as "absolutely in the first rank as a writer of ghost stories",  editing and supplying introductions to Madame Crowl's Ghost and Uncle Silas Joshi Introduction.
