  • "A young American woman is determined to live her life to the fullest."@en
  • "When Isabel Archer, a young American woman with looks, wit, and imagination, arrives in Europe, she sees the world as 'a place of brightness, of free expression, of irresistible action'. She turns aside from suitors who offer her their wealth and devotion to follow her own path. But that way leads to disillusionment and a future as constricted as 'a dark narrow alley with a dead wall at the end'. In a conclusion that is one of the most moving in modern fiction, Isabel makes her final choice. The Portrait of a Lady is the masterpiece of James's middle period, and Isabel is perhaps his most engaging central character. This edition provides a challenging new Introduction and detailed notes; the text is that of the New York Edition and includes Henry James's own Preface."

This new edition usefully tracks the major textual changes James made for his New York Edition. - ;'One ought to choose something very deliberately, and be faithful to that.'Isabel Archer is a young, intelligent, and spirited American girl, determined to relish her first experience of Europe. She rejects two eligible suitors in her fervent comm."@en
