Product Description

Daisy Miller/Daisy Miller by Henry James

Parallel Text/Dual Language Paperback, 224 pages

This short story portrays the courtship of the beautiful American girl Daisy Miller by Winterbourne, a less sophisticated compatriot of hers. His pursuit of her is hampered by her own flirtatiousness, which is frowned upon by the others who they meet whilst travelling through Italy. This story is a psychological description of the mind of a young woman, and the analysis of the traditional views of a society where she is clearly an outsider and more generally, the common prejudices of any culture.
