Summary
  • "In James's novel [The Ambassadors], a conscientious American, Lambert Strether, travels to Paris to convince Chad Newsome, the son of a friend, to return home and take charge of family business matters. Strether finds Newsome significantly altered--mature and sophisticated, and with a mistress. Strether himself eventually succumbs to the charms of the Old World and gives up his mission. Although others arrive from America to attempt to lure Newsome home, only the older man recognizes the true nature of the young man's transformation
  • "In the novel an American woman, Maggie Verver, marries an Italian prince, while her wealthy father marries Maggie's girlhood friend, Charlotte Stant--neither Verver being aware that the Prince and Charlotte have been (and possibly continue to be) lovers. Maggie's eventual discovery of the nature of that relationship provides the basis for an exploration of the fragility and strength of human ties and further develops what James once called that 'complex fate, being an American.'
  • "The Outcry, James's last completed novel, is a crisp and witty comedy of manners adapted from an unproduced stage play he had written in 1909. Its light plot serves as a platform for a more serious discussion of the ethics of art collecting
  • "Included as an appendix is 'The Married Son,' the chapter James contributed to The Whole Family (1908), a multi-author novel conceived by Howells and portraying a fractious family whose struggles mirror the frustrated collaborative efforts of the book's twelve contributors."--Publisher description from jacket flaps
