Author(s): Henry James
When Isabel Archer, a young American with looks, wit, and imagination, arrives in Europe, she sees the world as bright and open. Rejecting suitors who offer her wealth and devotion, she follows her own path, and finds that it leads to disillusionment and a future as constricted as 'a dark narrow alley with a dead wall at the end'.
"Excellent and responsible editing of a crucial text in American literature."--E.N. Feltskog, University of Wisconsin
