James, Henry: The Portrait Of A Lady. V2. 16 Mar 2012
"The conception of a certain young woman affronting her destiny" was how the author described this poignant story of an American princess in Europe.
The gay, independent, and beautiful Isabel Archer, on her arrival from abroad, is courted by several eligible men. The account of her involvement in the toils of European guile is generally regarded as the finest book of James's middle period.
"'The Portrait Of A Lady' is a great novel, and we can't ask for a finer exhibition of James's gifts than we get there and in 'The Bostonians' (they seem to me to be the two most brilliant novels in the language)" - F. R. Leavis in "The Great Tradition".
