    The Portrait of a Lady - Volume 1: By Henry James - Illustrated (English Edition) Door: Henry James,

    How is this book unique?Unabridged (100% Original content)Formatted for e-readerFont adjustments & biography includedIllustratedAbout The Portrait of a Lady - Volume 1 by Henry JamesThe Portrait of a Lady - Volume 1 is a novel by Henry James, first published as a serial in The Atlantic Monthly and Macmillan's Magazine in 1880–81 and then as a book in 1881. It is one of James's most popular long novels, and is 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 in "affronting her destiny", 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 in Europe, mostly England and Italy. Generally regarded as the masterpiece of James's early period, this novel 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, and betrayal.

    The Beast in the Jungle (English Edition) Door: Henry James,

    John Marcher, the protagonist, is reacquainted with May Bartram, a woman he knew ten years earlier, who remembers his odd secret: Marcher is seized with the belief that his life is to be defined by some catastrophic or spectacular event, lying in wait for him like a "beast in the jungle." May decides to buy a house in London with the money she inherited from a great aunt, and to spend her days with Marcher, curiously awaiting what fate has in store for him. Marcher is a hopeless egoist, who believes that he is precluded from marrying so that he does not subject his wife to his "spectacular fate".

    Gli Ambasciatori Door: Henry James,

    Gli ambasciatori sono persone fidate che la signora Newsome, ricca possidente di Woollett, cittadina industriale del New England, spedisce a Parigi perché riportino a casa il figlio Chad, sospettato di sprecare il suo tempo in bagordi. Il primo di questi “ambasciatori” è Lambert Strether, cinquantenne di bella presenza, intelligente e interessato alla mano della signora Newsome. Giunto a Parigi, scopre che il vero motivo che trattiene Chad dal tornare è una relazione con Madame de Vionnet. Invece di impegnarsi nel convincere il giovane a far ritorno a casa, Strether si lascia sedurre dal fascino della vecchia Europa e della scoppiettante capitale francese, dimenticando del tutto il motivo del viaggio e mettendo in crisi non solo il ruolo di “ambasciatore”, ma il senso stesso del suo intero percorso esistenziale. Intanto la signora Newsome, non sapendo cosa pensare, invia uno dopo l’altro nuovi ambasciatori che, puntualmente, cadono a loro volta nella rete di fascinazioni del beau monde, rimanendone invischiati. Scritto tra il 1900 e il 1901 e pubblicato nel 1903, Gli ambasciatori è un romanzo ampiamente autobiografico, considerato dallo stesso James come il suo capolavoro.

    Los periódicos Door: Henry James,

    Una pareja de periodistas –jóvenes, inquietos, pobres, enamorados –anda a la caza de la noticia en el bullicioso Londres de principios de siglo. El centro de la atención pública del momento lo ocupa un personaje “universal y ubicuo” que responde al complejo nom-bre de Sir A.B.C Beadel-Muffet, K.C.B., M.P., y que no es sino lo que Borges habría llamado una de esas “espléndidas nulidades que cruzan los visibles escenarios del mun-do”. Cuando un día este admirable caballero desaparece, no sólo deja una codiciada va-cante en el olimpo de la fama sino que arroja a nuestra pareja de reporteros al laberinto de una investigación cuyo efecto principal será, no obstante, preguntarse de qué manera han podido ellos mismos desencadenar –o hubieran podido evitar –lo ocurrido y sus consecuencias, aparentemente fatales. Los periódicos (1903), excelente nouvelle de la madurez de Henry James, pone sobre el tapete cuestiones tan actuales como la notorie-dad de lo banal o como la ética del periodista y resuelve con tremenda ironía un caso “romántico” de conciencia privada y opinión pública.

    En la jaula Door: Henry James,

    En la jaula es una lección magistral sobre el arte del punto de vista, y una ocasión extraordinaria para conocer a un Henry James social, moviéndose en los abismos de las clases asalariadas como en los de las clases ociosas, sin merma de soltura ni de penetración. La jaula a la que alude la novela, es la oficina de correos en la que una humilde joven se halla confinada.
