“The Portrait of a Lady is entirely successful in giving one the sense of having met somebody far too radiantly good for this world.”—Rebecca West
Capturing the grandeur of a gracious, splendid Europe of wealth and Old World sensibilities, this glorious, complex novel has become a touchstone for a great writer’s entire literary achievement. From the opening pages, when the high-spirited American girl Isabel Archer arrives at the English manor Gardencourt, James’s luminous, superbly crafted prose creates an atmosphere of intensity, expectation, and incomparable beauty.
This is a used, mass market paperback book in acceptable to fair condition. Slightly tattered cover, there is no writing or marks of any kind on the interior pages, but the exterior sure looks beat. Nonetheless, a good reading copy. Bantam Classics edition, 1983. Softcover, 525 pages.
