Publisher Comments:

An incomparable Henry James?s novel in a new edition

Featuring a new introduction, it is a brilliant and sophisticated satire of manners and morals in the best Jamesian tradition. The Wings of the Dove is an indelible take on the tragic love triangle in which two poor yet ardent lovers seduce a dying woman in the hope that she will leave them her fortune.

Synopsis:

The Wings of the Dove, considered to be one of Henry James's great masterpieces, is the story of Milly Theale, an American Heiress with a serious illness. The narrative of the work is chiefly concerned with Milly's struggle to achieve, however briefly and brokenly, the sense of having lived and the impact that struggle has on those around her. A semi-biographical tale of James's own cousin, Minny Temple, The Wings of the Dove is a classic and compelling work of American literature.
