Unpaid Annotation
The nineteen stories in Complete Stories 1874-1884 include some of his most famous explorations of the international theme, such as "Daisy Miller", the unforgettable portrayal of an innocent American girl at odds with European mores; "An International Episode" and "Lady Barbarina", satirically probing tales of English aristocrats and the American marriage market; and "The Siege of London", in which an a American widow strives to work her way into English society.
