Henry James

Daisy Miller

Henry James' 1878 publication that brought him international fame, “Daisy Miller” is subtitled “A Study in Two Parts.” The plot centers around a Europeanized American man named Winterbourne, who meets a nouveau riche American woman going by the name Daisy Miller. A short novel, James wields the sword of fiction to craft a “study” of the roles of men and women, social relationships, cultural intersection, the allure of money, foolishness and wisdom, the responsibilities of parents, and the impact of one's life upon others.
