American Imago. XXIX, 1972: Henry James's The Ambassadors: The Ritual Scene Revisited. Thomas R. Deans. Pp. 233-256.

This paper is interesting because of its analysis of a sought after déjà vu experience. The protagonist takes a train to a randomly selected spot on a river in the hope of seeing 'something somewhere' that would remind him of a small painting that had charmed him years ago. When a boat drifts into view containing a man and a woman who appear to him to be mother and son, he recalls a forgotten detail of the painting—a boat containing lovers. His reaction is one of horror because of the arousal of primal scene fantasies stemming from an earlier period of his life.
