The Portrait of a Lady Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library series

Hardback

Description

Widely accepted as Henry James' great masterpiece, The Portrait of a Lady is a poignant and intense exploration of freedom and identity.

This edition is introduced by Costa Award-winning author Colm Toibin. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

Intelligent, beautiful and vivacious, Isabel Archer fascinates and intimidates the elite society of Albany, New York.

Fiercely protective of her independence, she travels to England with her aunt to escape a persistent suitor but, upon inheriting a considerable fortune, falls into the sway of the devious Mrs Merle who whisks her off to Italy.

There she is seduced by the narcissistic Gilbert Osmond, an art collector who will stop at nothing to possess her, and whose connection to Mrs Merle is shrouded in mystery.
