Overview

"Daisy Miller" is one of Henry James's most popular tales, it is the story of a young American woman who while traveling in Europe is courted by Frederick Winterbourne. Originally published in The Cornhill Magazine in 1878, "Daisy Miller" is a novel that plays upon the contrast between American and European society, a theme common to James's work. The title character's youthful innocence is sharply contrasted with the sophistication of European society in this fatefully tragic tale. Also included in this volume are three additional shorter works by Henry James. They include "Pandora", "The Patagonia", and "Four Meetings".
