Description
Information
The Golden Bowl, a highly charged study of adultery, jealousy and possession, was the last novel that Henry James lived to complete, and along with The Ambassadors and The Wings of the Dove forms his trio of late, great works.Maggie Verver, a young American heiress, and her widowed father Adam, a billionaire collector of objets d'art, lead a life of wealth and refinement in London. They are both getting married: Maggie to Prince Amerigo, an imp overished Italian aristocrat, and Adam to beautiful but penniless Charlotte Stant, a friend of his daughter. But both father and daughter are unaware that their new conquests share a secret - for Charlotte and the Prince are lovers. And it is an affair for which all concerned must pay the price.
