Daisy Miller and Other Stories (Oxford World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tale of Daisy's irruption into staid European society enjoyed, as did Daisy herself, a succès de scandale; and it has remained one of Jamess most popular short stories. Like the others collected here--'Pandora,' 'The Patagonia,' and 'Four Meetings'-- it describes a confrontation between different values in a changing world. Is the new independent American girl enchanting in her spontaneity, alarming in her unpredictability, or merely vulnerable in her ignorance of social codes? Hung about with make admirers who seek, uncertainly, to grasp the new phenomenon, Daisy marches on undiscourageable, to her triumphant--or tragic--destiny.

This volume contains prefaces by Henry James, a chronology of his life, and editor's notes.

Synopsis:

Daisy Miller is one of Henry James's most popular tales, it is the story of a young American woman who while traveling in Europe is courted by Frederick Winterbourne. Originally published in The Cornhill Magazine in 1878, Daisy Miller is a novel that plays upon the contrast between American and European society, a theme common to James's work. The title character's youthful innocence is sharply contrasted with the sophistication of European society in this fatefully tragic tale. Also included in this volume are three additional shorter works by Henry James. They include Pandora, The Patagonia, and Four Meetings.
