Publikace: THE WINGS OF THE DOVE (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - JAMES, H.. Synopsis: Confronting a Bronzino portrait in an English country

house, a young American heiress comes face to face with her own

predicament. For Milly Theale, who seems to have the world before

her and at her feet, is fatally ill. Eager for life, eager for

love, she embarks on her European adventure, warming to the

admiration of her new friends Kate Croy and Merton Densher. But

Merton and Kate are secretly engaged, and come to see in this angel

with a thumping bank account as a solution to their own problems.

For the remarkable Kate, scheming, passionate, poetic, also wants

to live... This edition of James's poignant and dramatic novel is

based on the revised New York Edition. The cover pictures the

Bronzino portrait which is the focus of the key scene in the book.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has

made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the

globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to

scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of

other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading

authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date

bibliographies for further study, and much more. Review: The Wings

of the Dove is a classic example of Henry James's morality tales

that play off the naiveté of an American protagonist abroad. In

early-20th-century London, Kate Croy and Merton Densher are engaged

in a passionate, clandestine love affair. Croy is desperately in

love with Densher, who has all the qualities of a potentially

excellent husband: he's handsome, witty, and idealistic--the one

thing he lacks is money, which ultimately renders him unsuitable as

a mate. By chance, Croy befriends a young American heiress, Milly

Theale. When Croy discovers that Theale suffers from a mysterious

and fatal malady, she hatches a plan that can give all three

characters something that they want--at a price. Croy and Densher

plan to accompany the young woman to Venice where Densher,

according to Croy's design, will seduce the ailing heiress. The two

hope that Theale will find love and happiness in her last days

and--when she dies--will leave her fortune to Densher, so that he

and Croy can live happily ever after. The scheme that at first

develops as planned begins to founder when Theale discovers the

pair's true motives shortly before her death. Densher struggles

with unanticipated feelings of love for his new paramour, and his

guilt may obstruct his ability to avail himself of Theale's gift.

James deftly navigates the complexities and irony of such moral

treachery in this stirring novel. Publikace: THE WINGS OF THE DOVE (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - JAMES, H.. Kniha napsaná v cizým jazyce. Je velmi čtivá. Vhodná i pro trénování cizího jazyka. nové vydání klasické anglické četby
