    Sinopsis de: "DAISY MILLER AND WASHINGTON SQUARE"

    Strikingly modern in its psychological insight, social observation and stylistic innovation, Henry James's fiction continues to attract and intrigue readers a century after its initial appearance. This volume offers two of his most popular and critically admired novellas: Daisy Miller and Washington Square. In Daisy Miller, James paints a vivid portrait of a vibrant young American girl visiting Europe for the first time. Lovely, flirtatious, eager for experience, Daisy meets a wealthy American, Mr. Winterbourne, and a penniless but passionate Italian. Her complex encounters with them and others allow James to explore one of his favorite themes, the effect of Americans and Europeans on each other. Washington Square's Catherine Sloper is Daisy Miller's opposite. Neither pretty nor charming, she lives with her wealthy, widowed, tyrannical father, Dr. Austin Sloper, who can barely conceal his disdain for his shy, awkward daughter. When a handsome suitor, Morris Townsend, comes calling, Catherine's father refuses to believe he is anything other than a heartless fortune hunter and sets out to destroy her romance.
