Summary, etc.:
An American heiress newly-arrived in Europe, Isabel does not look to a man to furnish her with destiny; instead she desires, with grace and courage, to find it herself. Two eligible suitors approach her and are refused. She then becomes utterly captivated by the languid charms of Gilbert Osmond. To him, she represents a superior prize worth at least seventy thousand pounds; through him, she faces a tragic choice. Numerous critics regard the The Portrait of a Lady as James's masterpiece. F.R. Leavis declared that "we can't ask for a finer exhibition of James's peculiar gifts."
