Considerada una de las mejores novelas de Henry James, El retrato de una dama una historia sencilla gira en torno a la joven y atractiva Isabel Archer, quien se ve obligada a trasladarse a Inglaterra desde su Estados Unidos natal. Una vez alli, establece distintas relaciones con otros americanos trasplantados, asi como con la sociedad britanica. La belleza y distincion de las que hace gala no pasan inadvertidas y son varios y de distinta laya los que la pretenden. Su eleccion final la llevara, paradojicamente, a poner de manifiesto toda su grandeza. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Henry James’s beloved novel about a young woman’s search for freedom in a world that seeks to tie her to convention In the wake of her father’s death, young Isabel Archer decides to travel to England to visit her aunt, leaving behind the life set out for her in America and spurning the romantic overtures of her Bostonian suitor. At her aunt’s country estate, Isabel is determined to plot a new course unburdened by routine. But, prodded by convention at every turn, Isabel makes a decision that not only undermines her longing for independence, but may seal her fate forever. Among one of Henry James’s most timeless works, The Portrait of a Lady is a rich and nuanced depiction of human psychology and the tension between the pull of social norms and the desire for autonomy.
