    [synopsis] => There is no better novel that gets the reader right into the

complexity of being human and the convolution of life itself

than Henry James's The Portrait of a Lady. The protagonist's

complexity is noticeable from the beginning while the story

itself is not just captivating but piously ingraining in its own

right. Its vastness of cultural allusions, the shrewdness of its

initiating construction and cleverness of assembly is a hallmark

of master storytelling. Isabel is free-spirited and concerned

about her freedom and driven by the fear of losing it. She is

in Europe courtesy of aunt Touchett and her path to marriage

is almost guaranteed. However, the inebriating Continent

proves to be an intoxicated realm from Paris, Florence to

Rome where her doting self-sufficiency misapprehensions

come into question while ostensible associates and superficial

friends craft a web of intrigues that will forever change her.
