The tale of Daisy's irruption into staid European society enjoyed, as did Daisy herself, a succï¿½s de scandale; and it has remained one of Jamess most popular short stories. Like the others collected here--'Pandora, ' 'The Patagonia, ' and 'Four Meetings'-- it describes a confrontation between different values in a changing world. Is the new independent American girl enchanting in her spontaneity, alarming in her unpredictability, or merely vulnerable in her ignorance of social codes?
