Publisher's Summary

The Portrait of a Lady was first published in 1881 and is arguably Henry James' finest novel. It is set in England and Europe, but the main characters tend to be American, including one of fiction's great heroines, Isabel Archer, around whom the plot revolves. A young innocent abroad, Isabel visits her American relatives in England, the Touchetts, and soon befriends her cousin, Ralph.


What the Critics Say

"The masterpiece of the first phase of James' career." (Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature)
"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)
