James' poignant, ironic work that explores what happens when a co-conspirator falls in love with "the mark."
James is incredibly detailed and though I love this film, I found the book to be rather slow moving.
A passionate romance set in London and Venice at the turn of the 20th century
For fans of turn of the century American culture, Henry James never lets you down. Illustrative, well crafted stories, combining American & European influences. A beautiful book.
The nationwide revival of interest in the writings of Henry James has created the demand for this new, popular-priced edition of The Wings of the Dove. Considered by its author the most ambitious, by his critics the most perceptive and by his ever-growing circle of devotees his most highly sustained novel, it is given a distinguished place in the Modern Library series beside five of his widely read works: The Portrait of a Lady, The Turn of the Screw and the Lesson of the Master, Washington Square, and The Short Stories of Henry James.
