James Henry The Spoils of Poynton


Henry James (1843-1916) was an American author regarded as a key transitional figure between literary realism and literary modernism. "The Spoils of Poynton" describes the struggle between Mrs. Gereth, a widow of impeccable taste and iron will, and her son Owen over a houseful of precious antique furniture. The story is largely told from the viewpoint of Fleda Vetch, a young woman in love with Owen but sympathetic to Mrs. Gereth's anguish over losing the antiques she patiently collected. Henry James created a work of exquisite ambiguity in his depiction of three women fighting for the allegiance of one weak-willed man.

Henry James Daisy Miller


Daisy Miller (1878) by Henry James is the story of the exuberant and naïve Daisy Miller, a young American girl who flirts and partakes of young life to its fullest while visiting Europe. Daisy meets the more subtle and self-aware Winterbourne and their romance ends in misfortune.

The portrait of Daisy is a quintessential exploration of the social mores of her era. And her flirtatious disregard of them is simultaneously a breath of fresh air and the heart of tragedy.
