Travelling in Europe with her family, Daisy Miller, an exquisitely beautiful young American woman, presents her fellow-countryman Winterbourne with a dilemma he cannot resolve. Is she deliberately flouting social convention in the outspoken way she talks and acts, or is she simply ignorant of those conventions? When she strikes up an intimate friendship with an urbane young Italian, her flat refusal to observe the codes of respectable behaviour leave her perilously exposed. In Daisy Miller, James created his first great portrait of the enigmatic and dangerously independent American woman, a figure who would come to dominate his later masterpieces.  

小说展现了一段爱情悲剧的始末,以主人公到欧洲观光的角度再现了19世纪末期欧洲的风土人情和造成爱情悲剧的社会习俗。小说主要探讨了新旧大陆的文化冲突,主要展现了两种文化的相斥,也就是美国人的无知单纯与欧洲人的恪守陈规、老于世故之间的对峙。而这两种文化的互相冲突是詹姆斯所经历的新旧两个大陆文化对比的体现,小说中不同人物正是两种文化的不同体现。

Daisy Miller is an 1878 novella by Henry James. Daisy Miller (1878) by Henry James is the story of the exuberant and naïve Daisy Miller, a young American girl who flirts and partakes of young life to its fullest while visiting Europe. Daisy meets the more subtle and self-aware Winterbourne and their romance ends in misfortune. James is primarily known for his portrayal of the encounter of Americans with Europe and Europeans.

Henry James, (15 April 1843—28 February 1916) was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He is primarily known for the series of novels in which he portrays the encounter of Americans with Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allows him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting.

尽管他急切地要见她,他几乎不知道怎么说明他姑妈拒绝认识她这件事,但他很快发现,和戴西·米勒小姐在一起,根本没有必要太小心翼翼。

Though he was impatient to see her, he hardly knew what he should say to her about his aunt’s refusal to become acquainted with her; but he discovered, promptly enough, that with Miss Daisy Miller there was no great need of walking on tiptoe.

    这篇文章看来稍显平淡,我不是很喜欢。我喜欢那些清洁紧凑扣人心弦的历险记。不过这篇文章的意义似乎比历险记要更深刻一些。我认为它指向了当时社会存在的一种封建落后的社会现象文中说戴西爱上了弗雷德里克但因为姨妈的原因他们最终没有走到一起在罗马戴西认识了意大利男青年但姨妈又劝她离开他。真的很同情戴西,也为她的坚定所感动。但毕……展开↓
