I am now reading the book titled The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James.I found that reading this book makes me love descriptive paragragh.Henry James tried to write the description so long but it's not boring,on the contrary ,its sound challenging.
At first,I found that Isabel is is the woman not caring for any man because of her love of independence and her self-confidence. But when Gilbert Osmond asked her to marry him,she incredable accepted it although she knew this man is not the man whom many women in that time desired.He is just a widower.He earned his living by being a painter.Conversely,Lord Warborton who asked her to get married is an ideal man that many ladies craved for in that time. But she refused to be his wife.
So ,what do you think of this novel? It is about the feminism or something ?
Anyway,I was so surprised that there used to be a man author who wrote a nevel in feminist style.
