Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in The Cornhill Magazine in 1878 and in book form in 1879, Daisy Miller brought Henry James his first widespread commercial and critical success. The young Daisy Miller, an American on holiday with her mother on the shores of Switzerlands Lac Leman, is one of Jamess most vivid and tragic characters. Daisys friendship with an American gentleman, Mr. Winterbourne, and her subsequent infatuation with a passionate but impoverished Italian bring to life the great Jamesian themes of Americans abroad, innocence versus experience, and the grip of fate. As Elizabeth Hardwick writes in her Introduction, Daisy Miller “lives on, a figure out of literature who has entered history as a name, a vision.”

Synopsis:

The first book to bring Henry James widespread critical success and one of his most concise meditations on Americans in Europe, with a new Introduction by Elizabeth Hardwick. This edition contains newly commissioned endnotes and is set from the definitive New York edition.
