Henry James s The Portrait Of A Lady1 Isabel ArcherThe lady in the title Beautiful young headstrong and spirited the American woman visits her wealthy relatives in England rejects marriage proposals by two worthy suitors inherits a fortune and then is manipulated into marrying one of the most odious creatures on the planet Gilbert Osmond She s utterly fascinating and if I were back in university I imagine having long conversations and arguments about her character What does she want Freedom The ability to choose even if it s a bad choice Is she a projection of James s latent homosexuality Is she a feminist or not There are no simple answers 2 The Prose and Psychological ComplexityDamn James knew how to write long luxuriant sentences that dig deep into his characters minds Sometimes the effect can be claustrophobic get me out of this person s head but often it s utterly compelling and convincing We partly read fiction to learn about other people s lives right Well James does that The exceptions Isabel s two wealthy handsome suitors Warburton and Goodwood are less than believable and remind me of eager or horny dogs their tails wagging whenever they re around their lovelust object3 The StoryOkay not much really happens But as the book progressed even though I sort of knew the outcome it s hard to avoid spoilers from a 135 year old classic I was increasingly curious to see how Isabel would act In fact I raced through the final chapters breathlessly Who knew Henry James page turner And have a theory about that ending Take your turn4 The HumourIt s not a comedy but there are lots of amusing bits James s narrator is genial and funny Henrietta Stackpole her gentleman friend Mr Bantling and even Gilbert Osmond s sister the Countess Gemini are all very colourful characters who elicit a chuckle or two And Isabel s aunt can be terribly cutting as well I love Ralph Isabel s cousin and the dignified British Lord Warburton s reactions to the enterprising no fuss American lady journalist Henrietta 5 The SettingsEach one is significant from the stately Gardencourt home of Isabel s relatives the Touchetts to the bustle and anonymity of London to the ruins of Rome where Isabel finds herself stuck in a dead fossilized marriage James is a master at finding the right place to stage a scene I could write an essay about interiors and exteriors in the book but I ll spare you6 The VillainsMadame Merle and Gilbert Osmond individually they re sinister but together they re positively Machiavellian In fact in one scene it s revealed that they both like Machiavelli and Isabel doesn t get the clue They totally play her And yet they re believable too Osmond s scene in which he professes his love is brilliant in its manipulation and the final turn of the screw asking her to do him a favour is very clever Madame Merle s motivations always keep you guessing Does she see herself in Isabel Is she jealous Does she just want to exert her power over her The scene in which Isabel sees both in her home conspiring evident from their attitudes is so powerful James refers to it a couple of times And of course it s missing from the Jane Campion film see below7 The ThemesDoes money corrupt What do you really know about someone before you marry What is the true nature of freedom What happens when New World American innocence meets Old World European experience All these themes and many others come across naturally and never feel shoe horned into the story8 The TechniueI remember hearing people go on about the architecture of Henry James s novels and this one is sturdily handsomely built The book begins and ends in the same setting And there are some ingenious sections in the middle where time has passed and the reader discovers major information through conversations Like any great writer James knows what to leave out He makes you do work to fill in the pieces but the novel becomes memorable because of that And he bridges the Victorian and Modern eras in the same way that Beethoven bridges the Classical and Romantic eras9 Chapter 42After a huge blowup with Osmond Isabel stays up all night staring into the fireplace and ponders her life

FREE DOWNLOAD The Portrait of a Lady 107 Ved in Europe Spirited and independent Isabel is determined to make her own decisions in James' penetrating psychological and social i. I had many wonderful moments while reading this book moments when the writing halted the reading when I had to pause and admire and wonder Moments when the book seemed to speak to my own experience as if it were written expressly for the girl who was me at twenty two causing me to wonder how Henry James could have guessed so well the presumptuous ideas I had about life and love at that early stage All of that is very personal of course and not necessarily of interest to other readers but there were other moments in my reading of The Portrait of a Lady that better merit mention in a review I had read this book before about twenty years ago so although I knew the bare bones of the story I remembered few of the details I certainly had no recollection of reading a particular scene from early in the story the one in which Isabel Archer meets a stranger in her aunt s house And yet there was something about the lead up to that scene that caught my attention this time the house is very still because Isabel s uncle is dying Out of the silence comes the sound of someone playing the piano Wonderingly Isabel makes her way toward the source of the harmony Those six words were like a bell ringing in my mind I felt a sharpening of interest an awareness of how pivotal this moment would be in the story I remember thinking I ve been reading this book with all senses on alert and this is my reward I ve sensed the author s excitement at the turn his story is about to take There was another scene later in the book when I had a similar feeling of change about to happen Isabel sits up late one night in Rome pondering a difficult decision indeed pondering all the decisions in her life so far The reader watches with her and wonders how she will act And wonders again when she finally doesThere are other major shifts in the narrative but none stood out for me uite the way those two did In fact Henry James purposely avoids describing the most significant shift of all by skipping a three year section of Isabel s life completely which is a very effective narrative device of course introducing both surprise and suspense in a story that has only a six year span in total As a reader I appreciated both strategies the emphasis he seemed to place on some scenes and the complete omission he allowed to others It was all very wonderful In fact this book has revised my idea of what wonderful means The Portrait of a Lady is vying for a place as the highlight of my Henry James reading year even though The Ambassadors was already firmly camped in that position I ve decided they can be the joint highlight they have a lot of wonderfulness in commonWhen I finished The Portrait I turned to HJ s 1906 appendix and found a paragraph about his concerns for the reader He writes that he has purposely piled brick upon brick for our benefit carefully including the details that will enable us to grasp the totality of his creation And among those details he mentions two in particular keystones in the building of the story as it were The first is the piano scene I described earlier He speaks of the rare chemistry of that scene in which Isabel recognizes that a huge change is about to happen in her life I felt really validated as a reader to have been aware in advance of the significance of what I was about to read and so I wasn t surprised when his other pivotal scene turned out to be the one where Isabel sits up late into the Roman night pondering her decisions This is the sixteenth Henry James book I ve read in six months Perhaps I ve learnt something of the way his writer s mind worksMore confirmation of that possibility came when he began to discuss the shape of this novel He continues to speak in terms of bricks and architecture and proportions and he says that of all his novels The Portrait is the best proportioned with the exception of a novel he was to write twenty two years later The Ambassadors Alongside a certain roundness in shape which they share he finds they also share a kind of supporting beam or rib that runs through them This rib is made from two minor but key characters Henrietta Stackpole and Maria Gostrey Both seem extraneous to each story at first glance yet both are central to the architecture of their particular story I remember noting that Maria Gostrey was the thread that allowed me to find my way through the labyrinth that was The Ambassadors so it was wonderful to hear Henry James confirm that and underline the links between the two books as well I was also reminded that I had begun to look at his books in terms of architecture while reading The Wings of the Dove so I really appreciated his architectural metaphorsIn fact the appendix left me amazed and wondering at every turn In the updates I uoted part of a paragraph on his theories about the house of fiction I d like to uote the whole thing here because it is really worth reading and it provided me with huge insights into some Gerald Murnane books I ve puzzled over in the past The Plains and Inland and offered a strong desire to read Murnane s Million Windows The house of fiction has in short not one window but a million a number of possible windows not to be reckoned rather every one of which has been pierced or is still pierceable in its vast front by the need of the individual vision and by the pressure of the individual will These apertures of dissimilar shape and size hang so all together over the human scene that we might have expected of them a greater sameness of report than we find They are but windows at the best mere holes in a dead wall disconnected perched aloft they are not hinged doors opening straight upon life But they have this mark of their own that at each of them stands a figure with a pair of eyes or at least with a field glass which forms again and again for observation a uniue instrument insuring to the person making use of it an impression distinct from every other He and his neighbors are watching the same show but one seeing where the other sees less one seeing black where the other sees white one seeing big where the other sees small one seeing coarse where the other sees fine And so on and so on there is fortunately no saying on what for the particular pair of eyes the window may NOT open fortunately by reason precisely of this incalculability of range The spreading field the human scene is the choice of subject the pierced aperture either broad or balconied or slit like and low browed is the literary form but they are singly or together as nothing without the posted presence of the watcher without in other words the consciousness of the artist Tell me what the artist is and I will tell you of what he has BEEN conscious Thereby I shall express to you at once his boundless freedom and his moral referenceThis book is the final one in my 2017 Henry James season and I can t think of a better title to finish on But in every ending there are beginnings The Portrait has led me to another book Henry James says he took the slight personality the mere slim shade of an intelligent but presumptuous girl and created what he called an ado about Isabel Archer That reference has
