Daisy Miller and An International Episode

Henry James
Edited by Adrian Poole

Oxford World's Classics

  • A unique edition which reunites two tales which James intended to be complementary, 'Daisy Miller' and 'An International Episode'.
  • Both tales explore one of James's frequent themes, the response of the old world to the new and vice versa, as the young, independent American girl irrupts into European society.
  • Introduction by distinguished James scholar Adrian Poole explores James's ironic portrayal of the frictions involved in the development of a new transatlantic world in the closing decades of the nineteenth century.
  • Reproduces the revised New York edition texts and includes a selection of significant variants.
  • Appendix on stage and film versions of 'Daisy Miller'.
  • Informative notes.
