About this product

The story of the spirited Isabel Archer, who becomes the subject of scheming by two fellow Americans when they learn of her inheritance, has been described as one of Henry James` finest novels. Isabel's independence at first seems assured by a surprise legacy from her uncle but, ironically, her wealth only serves to attract the scheming Madame Merle and the cruelly possessive Gilbert Osmond. The revelations that follow Isabel's marriage to Osmond are devastating as she is forced to confron the conflict between society's demand for propriety and her own fierce sense of independence.
