The Portrait of a lady

Volume I

by James, Henry, 1843-1916

The Portrait of a Lady is the story of a spirited young American woman, Isabel Archer, who, “confronting her destiny”,[1] finds it overwhelming. She inherits a large amount of money and subsequently becomes the victim of Machiavellian scheming by two American expatriates. Like many of James’s novels, it is set in Europe, mostly England and Italy. Generally regarded as the masterpiece of James’s early period,[2] this novel reflects James’s continuing interest in the differences between the New World and the Old, often to the detriment of the former. It also treats in a profound way the themes of personal freedom, responsibility, and betrayal.

    Bookworms will definitely like these books. I personally love Dracula. I am fond of vampires, werewolves, witches and warlocks. Outstanding version of a gothic horror book. The main character, Mina is very inspiring because of her guts and courage. There’s some mysterious feels in the novel that keeps reader hook into the story. But this book is recommended to be read with an open mind and adult guidance if you’re a minor.
