The story of a beautiful and reckless young American woman in Europe, this novella is one of Henry James's most enduringly popular works. Charming but inscrutable, Daisy Miller shocks European society with her casual indifference to its social rules, and finally drives away Winterbourne, the serious American man who tries to "rescue" her. Portrayed with remarkable subtlety, Daisy is a character whose complexity has intrigued generations of readers.In addition to a critical introduction and selections from Henry James's dramatic adaptation of Daisy Miller, this edition provides a rich selection of contextual materials on James's theories of fi ction and drama, nineteenth-century travel, "the new woman" of the era, and the history of medicine.From the Inside Flap:

The young Daisy Miller, an American on holiday with her mother on the shores of Switzerland's Lac Leman, is one of James's most vivid and tragic characters. Daisy's 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."
