The text of this 1902 novel is again that of the fully corrected and annotated reprint of the New York Edition (1909), together with James’s preface and the two frontispieces he commissioned for the New York Edition of The Wings of the Dove.
The "Textual Appendix" includes notes on the novel’s textual history and lists all substantive revisions that James made to the novel, both in 1902 and in1909. "The Author and the Novel," introduced by editorial commentary and new to the Second Edition, includes selections from James’s notebooks, letters, travel books, and autobiographical writings, which illuminate his conception and assessment of The Wings of the Dove. "Criticism" reflects the lively interpretive and theoretical writing that The Wings of the Dove has enjoyed since the previous edition was published in 1978. Eleven essays are included, seven of them new to the Second Edition, including Anthony J. Mazzella’s piece on film adaptation. A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.
