Classic fiction

Maggie Verver, a young American heiress, and her widowed father Adam, a billionaire collector of objets d'art, lead a life of wealth and refinement in London. They are both getting married: Maggie to Prince Amerigo, an impoverished Italian aristocrat, and Adam to the beautiful but penniless Charlotte Stant, a friend of his daughter. But both father and daughter are unaware that their new conquests share a secret – one for which all concerned must pay the price. Henry James's late, great work is a highly charged study of adultery, jealousy and possession that both continues, and challenges, his theme of confrontation between American innocence and European experience. Part of a series of new Penguin Classics editions of Henry James's works, this edition contains a chronology, suggested further reading, a glossary, notes and an introduction by Ruth Bernard Yeazell discussing James's original conception of the novel and later changes made to its structure and characters.
