The young Daisy Miller, an American on holiday with her mother on the shores of Switzerland’s Lac Leman, is one of James’s most vivid and tragic characters. Daisy’s friendship with an American gentleman, Mr. Winterbourne, and her subsequent infatuation with a passionate but impoverished Italian bring to life the great Jamesian themes of Americans abroad, innocence versus experience, and the grip of fate.
Daisy Miller is part of our project of: WAITING FOR LOLITA.
In fact our goal will be reading and talking about READING LOLITA IN TEHERAN by AZAR NAFISI. Before we start discussing this novel, we will prepare ourselves by approaching other works. We have already discussed The Great Gatsby and now it’ the turn of Daisy Miller. Other masterpieces are waiting for us.
You will find a copy waiting for you at the bookshop il libro.
If you wish to participate, please let us know by phone or email. Thank you!
