An incomparable Henry James’s novel in a new edition“He is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare in the history of poetry.”
Featuring a new introduction, it is a brilliant and sophisticated satire of manners and morals in the best Jamesian tradition. The Wings of the Dove is an indelible take on the tragic love triangle in which two poor yet ardent lovers seduce a dying woman in the hope that she will leave them her fortune.
