Description

Complete 3 Volumes. The Portrait of a Lady is the story of a spirited young American woman, Isabel Archer, who 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, 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.

This book has 638 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1881.

Production notes: This e-book of The Portrait of a Lady was published by Global Grey in 2018.
