The story of a beautiful and reckless young American woman in Europe, this novella is one of Henry James's most enduringly popular works.
Charming but inscrutable, Daisy Miller shocks European society with her casual indifference to its social rules, and finally drives away Winterbourne, the serious American man who tries to "rescue" her.
Portrayed with remarkable subtlety, Daisy is a character whose complexity has intrigued generations of readers.
In addition to a critical introduction and selections from Henry James's dramatic adaptation of Daisy Miller, this edition provides a rich selection of contextual materials on James's theories of fiction and drama, nineteenth-century travel, "the new woman" of the era, and the history of medicine.
