Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The wealthy American widower Adam Verver and his shy daughter, Maggie, live in Europe, closely tied through their love of art and their mutual admiration.  Maggie's future seems assured when she becomes the wife of a charming, though impoverished, Italian prince. But when Adam marries his daughter's friend Charlotte Stant, unaware that she is the prince's mistress, the stage is set for a complex and indirect battle between the two wives. The brilliant Charlotte is determined to keep her lover, while Maggie is determined to protect her beloved father from any knoweldge of their shared betrayal. 

The acuity with which Henry James calibrates the four characters' delicately shifting alliances and documents the maturation of a naïve young woman marks this as a magnificent achievement. The Golden Bowl was not only James's last major work but also the novel in which his unparalleled gift for psychological drama reached its height.

Introduction by Denis Donoghue

Synopsis:

An extraordinary collection that features some of the most beloved stories in early American literature, ranging from tales of love and longing to those of personal transformation. With elegant cloth sewn bindings, gold stamped covers, and silk ribbon markers, these classics are an essential for any home library.

Titles included:

The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

The Complete Stories by Edgar Allan Poe

The Golden Bowl by Henry James

Moby-Dick by Herman Melville

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Synopsis:

Henry James' story of a pair of adulterous lovers who are married, respectively, to a rich American collector of European art and to his inexperienced daughter provides--beyond its expensive, burnished, beautifully appointed exteriors--an understanding of the risks and betrayals inherent in society that is unparalleled in literature.
