Traces James' negative opinions about Jews throughout his life. The sources of his anti-Jewish attitudes and the antisemitic stereotypes in his works were the opinions of his father, who described the Jews as "spiritually bankrupt" and the "epitome of greed"; a broad spectrum of American and French literature, ranging from school texts to well-known authors (e.g. Hawthorne); and ethnographic ideas popular during his lifetime. Discusses discrimination against Jews in the U.S. in the late 19th century, stating that James' works reflect the prevalent negative reaction to Jews. His pro-Dreyfusard position shows some ambivalence in his attitude, but his antisemitism is clearly depicted in his works. He uses the Jews as scapegoats, and sees the Jews in New York, in particular, as immigrants conspiring to conquer the city. States that although antisemitism is a marginal element in James' writing, many other writers and many readers were influenced by his racist attitudes.

When Isabel Archer, a young American woman with looks, wit, and imagination, arrives in Europe, she sees the world as 'a place of brightness, of free expression, of irresistible action'. She turns aside from suitors who offer her their wealth and devotion to follow her own path. But that way leads to disillusionment and a future as constricted as 'a dark narrow alley with a dead wall at the end'. In a conclusion that is one of the most moving in modern fiction, Isabel makes her final choice. The Portrait of a Lady is the masterpiece of James's middle period, and Isabel is perhaps his most engaging central character."The Portrait of a Lady" was, like "Roderick Hudson," begun in Florence, during threemonths spent there in the spring of 1879. Like "Roderick" and like "The American," ithad been designed for publication in "The Atlantic Monthly," where it began to appear in1880.
