Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1902, The Wings of the Dove "represents the pinnacle of James's prose" (Louis Auchincloss). It is a classic example of James's meticulously designed morality tales of treachery and self-betrayal, as a young, naive American heiress becomes both the victim and redeemer of the scheming lovers who conspire to obtain her fortune. This is the definitive New York Edition, which first appeared in 1907, and includes the author's preface, new notes by James scholar Peter Walker, and a reading group guide.
