“One of the thousand novels everyone must read.” The Guardian

“And I have never read anything as beautiful as that . . . So begins “The Portrait of a Lady,” and its opening chords, quiet as they are, have almost no match in English-speaking literature.” Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

“One of the most enthralling and enchanting novels that I've read in a long, long time.” Christopher H.

“The Portrait of a Lady is Henry James's most famous work, and Isabel Archer his most famous heroine. This is James at his best.” Litlovers

“The story of a young American woman "affronting her destiny", James endows his heroine with every possibility for freedom and happiness — an inheritance, independence of mind and beauty — only for her to become trapped by the Machiavellian Madame Merle and the sinister Osmond. Not even a passionate embrace with the manly Caspar Goodwood (is there a sexier kiss in all of literature?) can make her change her mind and renounce her duty.” Lisa Allardice, The Guardian

THE PORTRAIT OF THE LADY is one of the greatest novels of all time in a beautifully presented edition specially designed for kindle. This is Henry James’ masterpiece which will stay with you forever.
