Synopsis

With an Introduction and Notes by Lionel Kelly, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Reading.

Transplanted to Europe from her native America, Isabel Archer has candour, beauty, intelligence, an independent spirit and a marked enthusiasm for life. An unexpected inheritance apparently gives her freedom, but despite all her natural advantages she makes one disastrous error of judgement and the result is genuinely tragic. Her tale, told with James' inimitable poise, is of the widest relevance.

'The phase when his (Henry James') genius functioned with the freest and fullest vitality is represented by The Portrait of a Lady'.

(F.R. LEAVIS)

About the Publisher

Wordsworth Editions

Wordsworth Editions

A question we are often asked is how we are able to offer such high quality books at such low prices. The simple answer is that we are a small family business, with rather old-fashioned values. We do not have corporate headquarters or a massive marketing budget, and this helps us to achieve our ultimate aim: making classic fiction and non-fiction books available at an affordable price, but without any compromise on quality.
