Overview

Daisy Miller is an 1878 novella by Henry James. It portrays the confused courtship of an American girl by Winterbourne – a fellow citizen of hers with much more sophistication. His pursuit of her is hampered by her own flirtatiousness, which is frowned upon by the other emigrants they meet in Switzerland and Italy. Her lack of understanding of the social traditions of the society she so desperately wishes to enter ultimately leads to tragedy.

About the Author

Henry James was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James. James alternated between America and Europe for the first 20 years of his life, after which he settled in England, becoming a British subject in 1915, one year before his death. He is primarily known for the series of novels in which he portrays the encounter of Americans with Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allows him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting.
