"Daisy Miller" dominates this small collection and although it is nothing like so ambitious a work as for example the full blown novels, “The Portrait of a Lady” and “The Wings of the Dove” and several others, it is a sharply observed miniature with much to admire and enjoy. James’ penchant for long, involved sentences can be off-putting to the modern reader in particular, but I’d suggest that it’s well worth the effort to persevere.
The Wordsworth editions of the classics are wonderful value and often include, as here, most illuminating introductions. It is only a shame that to justify the price rather a small font is almost invariably met with.
