Publisher's Summary

Daisy Miller is a beautiful American girl abroad. Assured, flirtatious, and at odds with reserved European etiquette, she meets two men: Mr. Winterbourne, a world-weary compatriot in full pursuit, and Mr. Giovanelli, a passionate Italian with questionable motives. Unmindful of the scandals she incites and of the risks to her reputation, Daisy believes that she is also impervious to fate.

In Washington Square, New Yorker Catherine Sloper is plain, insecure, and socially awkward. Then handsome Morris Townsend comes into her life with a promise of romance. But Catherine's domineering father trusts that Morris has eyes only for his daughter's inheritance and aims to destroy the courtship - for Catherine's own good.

Each an outsider, each struggling for autonomy in her own way, Daisy Miller and Catherine Sloper embody Henry James's timeless themes of innocence, oppression, and the clash of new-world and old-world ideals.

Revised edition: Previously published as Daisy Miller, this edition of Daisy Miller & Washington Square (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
