Notă biografică

Henry James was born in 1843 in New York City. The son of a prominent theologian and philosopher, the young James's intellectual upbringing enabled him to travel widely, studying in New York, London, Paris, Bologna and Geneva. He briefly attended Harvard Law School in 1862 before choosing to dedicate himself instead to writing and literary criticism, with his first short story,A Tragedy of Error, published at the age of twenty-one. Well acquainted with Europe, he moved more permanently to England, living in London and later Sussex. A prominent literary figure and noted socialite, he admitted to having accepted 107 invitations in the winter of 1878-9 alone. James became a British citizen in 1915, received the Order of Merit in 1916, and died that year at the age of seventy-two.

Daisy MillerandThe Turn of the Screw,Washington SquareandThe Wings of the Doveare also published in the Penguin English Library.

Recenzii

"This subtle, beautifully constructed study of an attractive, intelligent, spirited young woman's transition from insouciance to enlightenment is a classic. Passion, intrigue, betrayal - it sounds like a potboiler, but James's observations of Victorian manners, understanding of human nature and exquisite prose elevate it to another league" Guardian "The Portrait of a Lady is entirely successful in giving one the sense of having met somebody far too radiantly good for this world" -- Rebecca West "Subtle and sophisticated and concerned with psychological nuance and social acceptability" -- Joanna Trollope "James is the master of making what is not said the most important thing on the page" -- Kate Atkinson "I read Portrait of a Lady by Henry James maybe once a year. I just love the story. I love the pace of it" -- Colm Toibin
