Overview

ANNOTATED:

* Contains literary critiques, detailed biographies, and detailed historical context


OVERVIEW:

One of Henry James's most popular long novels (and widely regarded by critics as one of his finest), The Portrait of a Lady is the story of a spirited young American woman, Isabel Archer, who "affronts her destiny" and finds it overwhelming. She inherits a large amount of money and subsequently becomes the victim of Machiavellian scheming by two American expatriates. Like many of James's novels, it is set mostly in Europe (mostly England and Italy) and reflects James's continuing interest in the differences between the New World and the Old, often to the detriment of the former. It also treats in a profound way the themes of personal freedom, responsibility, betrayal, and sexuality.

This Special Critical Edition of The Portrait of a Lady (Cambridge World Classics) is the only volume which contains the complete unabridged novel along with three bonus critical and biographical essays which examine, in depth, Henry James' life and literary legacy.



SPECIAL NOOK ENABLED FEATURES:

This edition contains special NOOKbook enabled features, including interactive table of contents.

The volume also employs PerfectLink (TM) technology which allows Nook readers to enjoy not only a fully interactive table of contents, but also the ability to click through to each section in the novel.

    Special Nook PerfectLink (TM) Technology

    This is not about the content of the book but about the "Special Nook PerfectLink (TM) Technology."

    I was surprised to find that the Special Nook PerfectLink (TM) Technology used to create this book has no chapters listed in the TOC, only Book I and Book II. Not very handy for getting around.
