About this Recording

JAMES, H.: Portrait of a Lady (The) (Abridged)

Maggie Tulliver has two lovers—Philip Wakem, son of her father’s enemy, and Stephen Guest, already promised to her cousin. But the love she wants most in the world is that of her brother Tom. Maggie’s struggle against her passionate and sensual nature leads her to a deeper understanding and to eventual tragedy.
