Description
Information
Travelling in Europe with her family, Daisy Miller, an exquisitely beautiful young American woman, presents her fellow-countryman Winterbourne with a dilemma he cannot resolve. Is she deliberately flouting social conventions in the way she talks and acts, or is she simply ignorant of them? When she strikes up an intimate friendship with an urbane young Italian, her flat refusal to observe the codes of respectable behaviour leave her perilously exposed. In Daisy Miller James created his first great portrait of an enigmatic and dangerously independent American woman, a figure who would come to dominate his later masterpieces. Geoffrey Moore's introduction explores the themes of innocence and experience in the novel. This edition also contains notes by Patricia Crick.
