Biographie de l'auteur

Henry James (1843-1916) was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr., a clergyman, and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James. James spent the last 40 years of his life in England, becoming a British subject in 1915, one year before his death. He is primarily known for the series of novels in which he portrays the encounter of Americans with Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allows him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting. James contributed significantly to literary criticism, particularly in his insistence that writers be allowed the greatest possible freedom in presenting their view of the world. James claimed that a text must first and foremost be realistic and contain a representation of life that is recognizable to its readers. Good novels, to James, show life in action and are, most importantly, interesting. The concept of a good or bad novel is judged solely upon whether the author is good or bad. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and possibly unreliable narrators in his own novels and tales brought a new depth and interest to narrative fiction. An extraordinarily productive writer, in addition to his voluminous works of fiction he published articles and books of travel, biography, autobiography, and criticism, and wrote plays, some of which were performed during his lifetime with moderate success. His theatrical work is thought to have profoundly influenced his later novels and tales.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Bon livre. Très bien pour l'édition Kindle 22 mars 2014

J'ai eu besoin de ce livre rapidement pour une étude littéraire. J'ai pu l'obtenir gratuitement sur ma kindle, et cela m'a bien arrangé, car je ne voulais pas l'acheter. Le roman en lui-même est plaisant.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Classic 1 décembre 2012

This is one of James' greatest stories featuring complex characters trying to negotiate complex relationships at a time when the role of women in society was being questioned. If your buying this to pleasure read, and you are not certain what you are getting, you may want to research this title first.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Henry James' "Daisy Miller" 20 janvier 2013
Par Gretchen Stull - Publié sur

Brief, but with a great deal of substance. Daisy is a fascinating character. Like Winterborne, I spent most of the story unsure of her motivations only to realize she had none. She wasn't playing some intricate societal game or trying to create controversy, she just wanted to have fun in a society that denigrated women for defining "fun" in the carefree way of Daisy. It's a simple, beautiful, and all together tragic story of an innocent young woman who wished only to do as she pleased, hurting no one except, ultimately, herself.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Challenged to read Daisy Miller 6 août 2014
Par K. L. Bauer - Publié sur

I only read this as it was one of the books assigned to my daughter to read over the summer. It was a short book and she challenged me to read it. It was quite different than my usual selection of light romance books, but I did manage to finish it. There were quite a few descriptive words that are no longer used everyday which caused me to highlight the word and look it up on google- this got annoying at times. I enjoyed how he described the countryside however and it was interesting to read about society norms in this time period. It's so different from the "anything goes" society we have today. All that being said, would I have selected this book had it not been an assignment for my daughter? No I wouldn't have, but am I glad I read it? Yes, because we can discuss the book together, and we both learned from it. This was actually my first "historical" book and all in all it wasn't bad.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Well Done Book 21 février 2013

Daisy Miller is not a light read, although it is quite short. Henry James seems to have conflicting views about European and American life values in his period and the book makes you think about how they might be viewed in our own time.

It is remarkable read very interesting. I enjoyed the fact that Miss Daisy Miller played by her own rules despite the gossip.
