Synopsis

The Wings of the Dove by Henry James, Grey Gowrie

In this extraordinary variation on the theme of the eternal triangle, Henry James contrasts two women who love one man: the magnificent but ambitious and unscrupulous Kate Croy, and the fragile heiress Millie Theale whose early death precipitates the story's surprising outcome. Together with The Golden Bowl and The Ambassadors, this novel completes a celebrated trilogy in which James explores his perennial themes of love and renunciation with all the strength, drama and subtlety of a very great writer at the height of his powers. The book is published to coincide with the film starring Helena Bonham Carter, Linus Roache, Elizabeth McGovern, Charlotte Rampling and Alison Elliot.
