Notes & Reviews:
The Portrait of a Lady is a compelling and ultimately tragic tale of Isabel Archer, a beautiful young American woman who encounters European sophistication as a variety of admirers vie for her hand. Upon its publication, The Portrait of a Lady was an immediate success. Even today it is the most popular of Henry Jamesís longer works, and is regarded by most literary scholars as his early period masterpiece. Juliet Stevensen reads for this recording. More titles from Henry James are set to be released by Naxos Audiobooks in 2017.
