Daisy Miller And An International Episode
1929. American-born writer, gifted with talents in literature, psychology, and philosophy. James wrote 20 novels, 112 stories, 12 plays and works of literary criticism. Among James's most famous literary works are The Europeans, the critically acclaimed Washington Square, The Bostonians, The Turn of the Screw. In his commercially successful novel, Daisy Miller, James follows the adventures of young Daisy Miller, an American on holiday with her mother in Europe. Daisy's friendship with an American gentleman, Mr. Winterbourne, and her subsequent infatuation with a passionate but impoverished Italian bring to life the great Jamesian themes of Americans abroad, innocence versus experience, and the grip of fate.
