OVERVIEW:

Ranked 26th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century by the Modern Library, Henry James' masterpiece The Wings of the Dove tells the story of Milly Theale, an American heiress stricken with a serious disease, and her impact on the people around her. Some of these people befriend Milly with honorable motives, while others are more self-interested.

Milly was based on Minny Temple (1845–1870), James' beloved cousin who died from tuberculosis. In his autobiography James said that The Wings of the Dove was his attempt to wrap her memory in the "beauty and dignity of art."

This Special Critical Edition of The Wings of the Dove (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.
