First published in magazine form in 1878, Daisy Miller is a novella that must strike modern readers very differently from their counterparts a hundred and forty years ago Now, the very idea of a young lady seeking the company of pleasant young men seems unremarkable in Western society, but then for one such as Daisy to do so unchaperoned, and especially against all advice and convention, would have been regarded as not only unrespectable but also reprehensible.In the outraged reactions of those First published in magazine form in 1878, Daisy Miller is a novella that must strike modern readers very differently from their counterparts a hundred and forty years ago Now, the very idea of a young lady seeking the company of pleasant young men seems unremarkable in Western society, but then for one such as Daisy to do so unchaperoned, and especially against all advice and convention, would have been regarded as not only unrespectable but also reprehensible.In the outraged reactions of those who observed Daisy s unconventionality James may have expressed closet anxieties over his own acceptance as an American in Europe, for he had only recently settled in England his many extended stays in Europe which included Switzerland and Italy had given him plenty of opportunity for observing how New World visitors were received in the Old World But of course Daisy Miller is muchthan autobiography dressed up as fiction.In Switzerland the faintly effete Frederick Winterbourne makes the acquaintance of a young compatriot from New York State, Randolph, on the shores of Lake Geneva Winterbourne is much struck by Randolph s sister Daisy who, despite appearing diffident intrigues him very much Winterbourne is aware of a need for propriety but his piqued curiosity contrasts with the blunt attitude of his aunt Mrs Costello she is of the opinion that Daisy, along with her mother and brother, is very common and therefore to be shunned The Miller family have a European courier, Eugenio, who familiarity with the trio also elicits the contempt of Mrs Costello Against his aunt s advice Winterbourne takes the young lady unchaperoned to visit the Castle of Chillon.The play of characters in this Victorian drama can be plotted on a graph with a pair of axes one axis runs from restrained to exuberant, the other from natural to cultivated Opposites sometimes attract and Daisy s natural exuberance clearly draws Winterbourne s attention, his own aloofness being a product of an upbringing which prized social restraint.From the shores of Lake Geneva in summer we shift to Italy in winter, where Winterbourne again encounters Daisy Miller and her family among the American colony in Rome Here he discovers Daisy exciting disapproval from his friend Mrs Walker because not only is Daisy displaying inconduite but she is associating with Giovanelli, an Italian of no social standing, in flagrant violation of cultured American s Winterbourne is finally persuaded that she is beyond the pale when he spots her alone with Giovanelli in the Colosseum one moonlit night.Some of James contemporaries would have thought that Daisy deserved what was coming to her, that the tragic denouement was only fitting given her insouciant behaviour But James issubtle than a superficial reading might suggest what is the novel judging, Daisy s waywardness or Winterbourne s late rush to judgement Daisy s innocence or her being treated as an outsider by Americans abroad It s clear that James is positing the clash of different worlds and different ways of thinking.Those clashes fit into a carefully plotted timeline, replete with significant names and places We travel eastwards, from Schenectady, New York to Vevey and Chillon in Switzerland for the first two chapters, which take place in June For the next two chapters we re wintering in Rome, in January, and even here the action moves steadily eastward from near the Villa Borghese to the Palatine, then the Colosseum, before heading south to the Protestant cemetery on the banks of the Tiber.The movement through space is therefore paralleled by the change of season, signposted by James choice of names Daisy is a common or garden flower, entirely fitting for someone called very common or uncultivated by her detractors It is also primarily a spring and summer plant, immediately identifiable, leading to Mrs Walker, Winterbourne s married friend, remarking that elle s affiche , she advertises herself Miller may also be seen as a derogatory term, as millers were frequently seen as rogues or swindlers in the days when farmers took their grain to be ground into flour.Winterbourne however sees Daisy as a refreshing change true, she isa flirt than a coquette, but he finds her diverting enough One can imagine him seeing her as one of the goddesses or nymphs treading the floral meadow in Botticelli s celebration of Spring, La Primavera.Ironic then that the snooty courier who looks after the requirements of the Millers in Europe is Eugenio, whose name means well born Eugenio it is who in Rome introduces Daisy to Giovanelli, a young man whose name clearly derives from Italian giovane, meaning young However, in Rome it is winter, and however much Daisy wants to keep her freshness, and youth, and innocence, the time proves awry Winterbourne whose name refers to a stream which flows during wet seasons turns against her his friends have already given her the cold shoulder The promise of Roman carnival dissipates in the sickly atmosphere, the chilly contagion of Swiss Calvinism finds its consummation in the cimitero dei protestanti.If Daisy Miller is an indictment, I don t think James saw it as leading to a condemnation of the sensitive young woman who seemingly lacked senseit was uptight folk who thought themselves better for being cultured and who looked down their noses at those who didn t act comme il faut Winterbourne, the ostensible stand in for the author, in fact proves a cad, dallying with Daisy s expectations James ultimately shows him up for what he is, someone who studies hard at getting himself a very clever foreign woman , preferably one who is unlike Daisy older than himself Is that less reprehensible than Miss Miller looking for pleasing companionship This edition of Daisy Miller is paired with The Turn of the Screw and supplemented by an essay, first published in 1964, by Carol Ohmann in this she argues that the novella s apparent unevenness arose because James began writing it as a comedy of manners and finished it as a symbolic presentation of a metaphysical ideal He began by criticising Daisy in certain ways and ended simply praising her It ceases therefore to be a study as advertised in the first edition anda warm evaluation of Daisy s natural qualities In this respect I m sure we moderns will beinclined to agree to sympathise with Daisy than many Victorian readers did 3 stars Daisy Miller 4 stars The Turn of the Screw 2 stars Average rating 3 stars I

reading The Turn of the Screw after Daisy Miller While Daisy Miller was direct and deliberate, The Turn of the Screw was so dense and sluggish Its a horror novella so I do understand the idea of wanting to use time to build suspense and tension but, the novella is bogged down by superfluous dialogue from the governess character At a certain point it became too much and only served to drag out the story as needlessly as possible However, considering that The Turn of the Screw was a serial publication I m not so surprised for James desire to draw out the story as far as he could The Turn of the Screw is a classic horror story written by Henry James It tells a story of a young governess and who watches after two children While taking care of them, she begins to encounter a couple ghost

When the governess first arrives at Bly, she recalls hearing the faint cry of a child and the sound of a light footstep outside her door As the story progresses, she begins to see a man and woman around the house Although it is confirmed that the people see keeps seeing are dead, she makes a point to mention that they look very real and human like as opposed to looking ghostly This book would definitely be considered to be a description It is explaining certain events that the narrator was told about He is recalling what happened from a written journal left by the governess who had experienced these occurrences The story he is reading has such great detail, that the reader can picture exactly what is happening and feel like they are there This book was very good It kept you on the edge of your seat most of the time and made the reader want to keep reading I liked how when I was reading it, I felt like I was right there, experiencing what was going on It was unlike any book I have read before considering after reading it, I was sad it was over It leaves the reader wanting .Daisy Miller is a short story written by Henry James It follows a young American, named

sure if she is telling the truth or not, he decides to leave the matter alone and move on Later, when Daisy dies, he finds out that she really did care about him This book is considered to be a narration It tells the story of Winterbourne through a chronological series of events It shows the reader how Winterbourne and Daisy meet, how they become close, and how Daisy ends up passing away There are not a lot holes for the reader to fill in They are told the whole story from beginning to end In my opinion, this book was just okay It wasn t very exciting and didn t keep my attention very well I had to really focus to understand what was going on I wouldn t say this book was awful but I would not recommend it to anybody Compared to other books written by Henry James, this was not one

little paperback copy has 35 on its cover drew my attention last evening, and I began rereading it, continuing this morning How is James conjuring such a feeling of foreboding, long before anything dreadful has occurred My sensation cannot be simply the result of having read the work before, of knowing in a general way what is going to happen rather, it has to do with his use of language itself, his manipulation of mood and atmosphere, and I am having difficulty putting my finger on exactly how he is doing that so skillfully True, his labyrinthine prose does convey an image of wandering, lostness, mystery, and startling surprises perhaps that plays a part Also apparent is his sense of pace, balancing episodes of tension with those of relaxation, the latter becoming less frequent and briefer as the narrative progresses to its claustrophobic conclusion When I read this work before I was unware and apparently insensitive to what now seem like obvious sexual overtones in the work, the atmosphere of perversion in the relationship of Miles and Flora with Quint and Jessel I don t think I m reading something into the story that isn t there how could I have missed it At any rate, having now completed my rereading of this novella, I join the legion of readers who remain uncertain whether it is a tale of the supernatural, with real ghosts and real haunting, or whether it is a tale of an insane governess projecting her irrational fantasies onto the world around her But must we resolve that ambiguity Isn t the ambiguity itself the whole point of the story A fascinating work to be sure.Daisy Miller seems lighter, less enigmatic, and less interesting to me A character study, it examines the constrasting social conventions of America and Europe that so fascinated James, conventions that he explored in many of his novels, but in this brief novella he does so with less depth than in his longer works Daisy Miller was not bad, if glaringly outdated, but I really had to drag myself through The Turn of the Screw, which sucks because I was looking forward to that one James writing is TOO extra I feel like he was a real well, actually kind of guy. Overburdened by density of language Dull characters Just too damn stuck up.
