Daisy Miller by Henry James

Book Listing

Author Henry James

The tale of Daisy's irruption into staid European society enjoyed, asdid Daisy herself, a succes de scandale; and it has remained one of James most popular short stories.  It describes a confrontation between different values in a changing world. Is the new independent American girl enchanting in her spontaneity, alarming in her unpredictability, or merely vulnerable in her ignorance ofsocial codes? Hung about with admirers who seek, uncertainly, to grasp the new phenomenon, Daisy marches on to her triumphant--or tragic--destiny.

So far I have enjoyed Daisy Miller much more than An International Episode. The dialog seems for me much easier to follow. James certainly can ramble on at times.
