Henry James writings particularly The Portrait of a Lady I read this book out of interest for another Henry James piece liking Daisy Miller so much I found that this book as in Daisy Miller has a female point of interest throughout Isabel Archer is a young American girl brought to Europe after her father has died in America Isabel is an independent girl easily noticed by many others in her circle I felt that Isabel was a woman in her time in that she took notice of things that she wouldnt have without certain without the opportunities she was given In America she would have see and done other things but in Europe she saw so much opportunity I like the carefree attitude she had but with the regard for her elders and common courtesy The example in the book about being a proper young lady when it was not looked at very well that she stay up alone with her cousin and another young man She had asked her aunt to help her and tell her when she is doing or about to do something saw as improper I admired that I think nowadays young women would revolt against proper if it meant something they did not wish to do Henry James writing was interesting to me in that he gave these characters a real life with real life struggles and even consequences I enjoy reading his work very much like I enjoy watching and reading Jane Austen pieces as well The time period is interesting to me and what is proper of a lady That is a large piece of the world I do not understand I am very much happy to see a woman and a man as equals Of course there are things in society that women dont do or just arent a part of but I am not one to be against that Whats else interesting
