A new edition of Henry James?s searing study of marriage and Infidelity
Set in England, The Golden Bowl is Henry James?s highly charged exploration of adultery, jealousy, and possession that continues?and challenges?James?s characteristic exploration of the battle between American innocence and European experience. Maggie Verver, a young American heiress, and her widowed father, Adam, 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. But both father and daughter are unaware that their new conquests share a secret?one for which all concerned must pay the price. This story completes what critics have called the ?major phase? of James?s career.
