    1. Henry James Italo Calvino Franco Garnero Jean Gooder

      Henry James, OM, son of theologian Henry James Sr brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American born author, one of the founders and leaders of a school of realism in fiction He spent much of his life in England and became a British subject shortly before his death He is primarily known for a series of major novels in which he portrayed the encounter of America with Europe His plots centered on personal relationships, the proper exercise of power in such relationships, and other moral questions His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allowed him to explore the phenomena of consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting.James insisted that writers in Great Britain and America should be allowed the greatest freedom possible in presenting their view of the world, as French authors were His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and unreliable narrators in his own novels and tales brought a new depth and interest to realistic fiction, and foreshadowed the modernist work of the twentieth century An extraordinarily productive writer, in addition to his voluminous works of fiction he published articles and books of travel writing, biography, autobiography, and criticism,and wrote plays, some of which were performed during his lifetime with moderate success His theatrical work is thought to have profoundly influenced his later novels and tales.


    1. Customs of different countries and people seem of little importance today to many, we are basically the same , underneath all humans, yet language, religion, history or even weather and geographic features divides us , what is accepted in one place is not in another: Daisy Miller, (real name Annie) is making the required Grand Tour of Europe, for wealthy Americans, those with aspirations to join high society, this novella was written in 1878. A typical American teenager , a girl, friendly, needi [...]

    2. Book Review4 of 5 stars to Daisy Miller by Henry James, a story about a free and unattached American girl who is spending some time in Europe after being removed from American society for some time. She unwittingly defies the moral code of European society, never realizing it until the very end when she dies. All throughout the story, “Daisy does what she likes, responds to what she likes. To the world around her she is a young girl, an American girl, she represents a society and a sex. She is [...]

    3. This little story catalyzed a lot of late 19th century debate about American values and European values and--particularly--the confident, un-blushing American girl who is not inclined to conform to the snobbish tastes and attitudes of the upper class people she meets as her family becomes wealthy."Daisy Miller" became a debatable type of American girl, Daisy Millerism a controversial kind of topic.Contemporary readers should give some thought to how Daisy's major sin against expatriate society i [...]

    4. Henry James in a nutshell. This novel contains all typical and topical for him issues, to mention only freshness and spontaneity contra preciosity and social niceties, differences between young and puritan country and fossilized and sophisticated Old World, clash between America and Europe, innocence of the first and corruption of the latter, though in that particular example we have rather America versus America.Daisy Miller, a young American, stays with her mother and younger brother at a hote [...]

    5. Daisy Miller is a short novel that seems to me like a condensed version of The Portrait of a Lady. Daisy is a young American girl traveling abroad in Europe with her mother and younger brother. Doing what any young American girl would consider normal, she is ridiculed and scorned for not adhering to the rigid and uncomprising moral standards and customs that existed in 19th century Europe, especially relating to young ladies actions in society. James writes his stories in a style that is uniquel [...]

    6. WINTRY DAISIESI rarely discuss plot, and doing so in a book on which so much has been written, seems to me like jumping into a bottomless pit.But I was sad, no; I ought to say that it irked me that Henry James had her Annie, ‘Daisy’, die at the end.For I was becoming more and more interested in her. Was she a superficial and provincial flirt? Or was she extremely modern and free in her defiance of stringent rules? For even if the stiff Winterbourne, when faced with a similar riddle eventuall [...]

    7. Ovo je prva knjiga koju sam pročitala na engleskom, od korica do korica :) U prvom razredu gimnazije I to je u to vreme bilo neobično A sada klinci još u osnovnoj školi čitaju knjige u originalu, što je dobro :) Henri Miler je bio i ostao jedan od mojih najdražih pisaca

    8. To condemn values of victorian origin it is necessary to demonstrate that they cannot overcome some of their essential antagonisms. If a critique of questionable morals is the intention of this book, the second part is more vauge, since it lacks any struggle worth struggeling for. We get to meet a young woman without many redeeming qualities that lives only to charm man-kind. She fights for nothing but her right to annoy, which meets some reservations among others, readers as well. "All I want i [...]

    9. Ah Daisy. What to do with you. You scuttle about this novel innocent, coquettish, a young pretty American in a foreign land. Why is it you won’t listen? Neither to James or to me. Even your name sounds fresh, innocent. You, in such young years have disarmed Rome’s society by seeing through their mountains of hypocrisy by not caring about what they consider scandalous or any careless dreams of joining their ranks.Of course the narrator is too stiff for you, caught in his own web of threaded c [...]

    10. "I'm very fond of society, and I have always had a great deal of it."In no time at all, Winterbourne becomes infatuated with young Daisy Miller, a "pretty American flirt," whom he considers to be "uncultivated," and an "inscrutable combination of audacity and innocence." His aunt disapproves, considering the girl and her family to be "common." And indeed, Daisy wastes no time in flaunting society's rules, setting tongues wagging. As a member of the proletariat, I should not enjoy a book concerni [...]

    11. If you haven't read Henry James, I would recommend Daisy Miller over the longer works. James crafts beautiful sentences with a lot of description and semicolons. His nickname is "The Master" and you can see why. Not much happens in a James narrative, but I love 19th century literature (formalities and all) so he's always been a favorite of mine.The narrative follows a young American man, Winterbourne, as he observes and critiques a young American woman--Daisy Miller--through their brief acquanta [...]

    12. a flimsy glance of an unintriguing character. i couldn't feel sorry for her; she seemed too frivolous to pity. and the double standard at the end is rather heavy-handed.

    13. I loved this book, in less than 90 pages, a wonderfully understated tragedy unfolds, society is judged and found wanting in a way that resonates today. In Daisy Miller, a young woman has her every move dissected by a hovering society unwilling to ascribe anything but the most base of motives to behavior that falls out of their norms. The norms defined by the late 19th century may seem ridiculously stifling to our modern eye, but I would argue that these norms have been eased, replaced but not re [...]

    14. How to make this book better: Winterbourne meets Daisy Miller and decides he does not like her. He returns home. THE END.

    15. I would say that Daisy Miller is a great introduction to Henry James. This book is not only shorter, but also less complex than other works of his that I have read. However, it bears a close resemblance to his novels and explores similar themes. Having previously read The Portrait of a Lady, I found it hard not to compare the two. Moreover, while I was reading Daisy Miller I experienced, perhaps predictably, a feeling of déjà vu. Daisy Miller was, if I recall well, James' first commercial lite [...]

    16. Τον Μάιο του 2015 ήρθα για πρώτη φορά σε επαφή με το έργο του Χένρι Τζέιμς, διαβάζοντας το κλασικό "Το στρίψιμο της βίδας". Ήταν ένα από τα χειρότερα βιβλία που διάβασα εκείνη τη χρονιά. Βαρετό, φλύαρο, κουραστικό, μονότονο, και πάει λέγοντας. Όμως δεν ξέγραψα τον συγγραφέα, γιατ [...]

    17. Il giorno della civettaDaisy è una graziosa ragazza americana che durante una vacanza incontra in Svizzera un giovane americano residente da anni in Europa.Inutile dire che sono tutti di buona famiglia, siamo in un racconto nell'ottocento, e che della differenza tra la cultura europea e americana si parla a ogni pagina, è Henry James.La ragazza è molto spigliata e poco attenta alle convenzioni. Il ragazzo è focoso come un merluzzo surgelato.Chi è Daisy? Una civetta o una ragazza per bene? E [...]

    18. Okay I picked this up because, with only three discs, it was the shortest audiobook I could find at the library and I wanted something brief for a shortened week of commuting. I had never read Daisy Miller, not heard much about it, and I hardly feel much like discussing it now that it's over. It bored the crap out of my kid, which goes to show that none of us have any appreciation for classic literature these days. Reading this felt a lot like being back in high school english class. The languag [...]

    19. I wanted to like this novella more than I did. The writing is lovely but the character of Daisy Miller is so annoying that I wanted to either lecture her or throttle her (preferably the latter). She is nothing but a vexing, silly flirt -- she has no redeemable qualities."He set her down as hopelessly childish and shallow, as such mere giddiness and ignorance incarnate as was powerless either to heed or to suffer."The portrait of Daisy is so severe that one could wonder if Henry James hated all A [...]

    20. Încă de la început, autorul îi atribuie personajului eponim o aură de ambiguitate. Ea nu se dezambiguizează decât vag, în ultimele pagini. Despre Daisy Miller pot afirma că este un fel de exponent al clasei, în corelaţie cu epoca în care acţiunea este plasată. Mi-a plăcut în mod special remarca la adresa percepţiei societăţii asupra moravurilor, în contrast cu aparenta frivolitate a protagonistei: "Dacă a fi iremediabil vulgar înseamnă sau nu a fi rău, asta e o chestiune [...]

    21. يحتوي الكتاب على اربع قصص ( ديزي مللر، أوراق جفري اسبرن، التلميذ، الحيوان في الغابة)، ويوجد في هذه القصص ثيمة واحدة للأحداث مع اختلاف قوالب الشخصيات، و ثيمة الأحداث كالتالي: كل قصة هي عن علاقة بين شخصين ( ليس بالضرورة علاقة عاطفية) يكون الراوي هو الطرف الأول من العلاقة سارداً [...]

    22. A short story which deals, as many other novels by James, with the changing role of women in Society and the differences that begun to arise between the old stiff Europe and the America at the end of the XIXth century.Daisy Miller is not like any other heroine of the time, she speaks her mind, defies the imposed roles of propriety and goes unchaperoned with as many gentlemen as she chooses to. Her transparent ways might have found a true companion in the sophisticated American Mr. Winterbourne, [...]

    23. This was a weird little book. I don't know what else to say about it.This book is about Daisy Miller, a young girl from America who is exploring Europe with her mother (who seems painfully shy) and her completely out-of-control brother.Daisy is a sweet girl, with "grand" idea's and is unconcerned with convention and gossip. She does things frequently that are very inappropriate without seeming to care.She meets a young man (Winterbourne) who she seems to bewitch from first meeting. And who follo [...]

    24. The Brujo, who's taught this novel, said, "d Winterbourne, like the reader, doesn't know what to make of her." Whereupon I exploded:Winterbourne doesn't know what to make of her? JAMES doesn't know what to make of her! The TEXT doesn't know what to DO with her! Winterbourne's obsessive attempt to understand merely parallels James's attempt to cope with his own refractory creation. And exactly when you've decided, okay, Daisy Miller is just an idiot—then she up and does something startling and [...]

    25. A book ahead of its time in this story of nonconformity, especially regarding women and feminism. A+ Henry Miller. It saddens me that in this day and age people berate Daisy for being nothing more than a "frivoulous flirt." Just because nosy and judgmental characters in the book call her these things and won't accept her behavior, does not make it so. Sure, she was naive in some ways, but more than that she was strong in character and who she wanted to be. For as much as she loved society, she w [...]

    26. Men have such expectations of how women should behave and it really grinds my bones. So what is Daisy has a lot of gentleman interested in her? That doesn't make her a bad person. Discussing this at uni is going to be a riot.
