Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Considered by many as one of the finest novels in the English language, The Portrait of a Lady is both a dramatic Victorian tale of betrayal and a wholly modern psychological study of a woman caught in machinations she only comes to understand too late. This new edition usefully tracks the major textual changes James made for his New York Edition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 my favorite novel 8 juin 2016
Par Anne Murcek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Henry James is one of my favorite authors partly because his settings (19th century well-to-do Europe and America) appeal to me and also because his writing is very sophisticated, often deliciously humorous and sometimes poignant.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Educational 29 octobre 2014
Par Janice E. Beck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you need a brain exercise, and wish to expand your knowledge of Victorian writers, this is a good book.
However, if you read on the level of a 8th or 9th grader, don't choose this book. It is typical of the era
in which it was written. I appreciated the glossary in the back to explain archaic words and phrases.
The story is about an American woman who is taken to England by an aunt after her parents are
deceased. She is blessed to receive a large sum of money that enables her to live "free," or she
so believes. She eventually learns differently. It doesn't end the way books of today would, but very
much typical of that time and era. It made me realize how much attitudes have changed in the past
100 years.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Masterpiece With A Blot 17 juin 2016
Par reading man - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
That PORTRAIT is one of the greatest novels in English is indisputable: Maxwell Geismar and his epigones are bad readers; F.R. Leavis and his disciples are perceptive guides, at least in this case (don't be deceived by Leavis' dismissal of late James, especially THE AMBASSADORS).

Having said that, I have to ask--am I the only reader who thinks Osmond and Madame Merle are more cliché than complex? Leavis rightly saw that Osmond was inspired by George Eliot's Grandcourt (in DANIEL DERONDA), but Grandcourt enacts frigid narcissism and Osmond is a stage villain. Explaining this point would require more space and time than I'm willing to take up, but if someone else can tell me in brief why I'm wrong, I'd be pleased. Isabel Archer is a magnificent sequel to Gwendolyn Harleth, but that's as far as I can go.

Madame Merle is unconvincing, another point that would require a lengthy essay, but I'm less concerned with her than I am with Isabel and Osmond who seem to me to be not only mismatched in terms of the plot, even moreso as characters in the same book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Ladyship Inheritance 24 octobre 2015
Par Mitylene Kuc - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
1880's Casper Goodwood who lived in Boston wrote Isabel proposing marriage however Isabel wrote back saying she wanted to be independent. Ralph's father Mr Touchett died leaving seventy thousand pounds to Isabel. Lord Warburton crossed the channel to America trying to convince Isabel that the marriage to Gilbert was financially generated. Isabel later deserted husband Gilbert Osmond and step-daughter Pansy. Mrs Osmond nee Isabel Archer departed for England when she heard that Ralph Touchett her beloved cousin was very ill. This decision was much against the wishes of Gilbert Osmond Isabel's husband who said that Isabel had to many ideas where there should have only be one - his! Gilbert had tried to sway events so that Pansy his daughter from his first marriage to Madame Merle would marry Lord Warburton who had his own estate Gardencourt in England. Isabel realized to late that Gilbert had married her because she was financially competent. The portrait was the image Gilbert had of Isabel's ladyship inheritance.

1843 - 1916 Henry James born New York, U.S.A. Best known for The American, The Turn of the Screw and The Ambassadors.

The book was what I needed for a class that I am going to teach next Spring. Oxford World Classics have what is required.
