          Sinopsis
          This carefully crafted ebook: "The Ambassadors (The Unabridged Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Ambassadors is a novel by Henry James. This dark comedy, seen as one of the masterpieces of James's final period, follows the trip of protagonist Lewis Lambert Strether to Europe in pursuit of Chad Newsome, his widowed fiancée's supposedly wayward son; he is to bring the young man back to the family business, but he encounters unexpected complications. The third-person narrative is told exclusively from Strether's point of view. The theme of liberation from a cramped, almost starved, emotional life into a more generous and gracious existence plays throughout The Ambassadors, yet it is noteworthy that James does not naïvely make of Paris a faultless paradise for culturally stunted Americans. Strether learns about the reverse of the European coin when he sees how desperately Marie fears losing Chad, after all she has done for him. As one critic proposed, Strether does not shed his American straitjacket only to be fitted with a more elegant European model, but instead learns to evaluate every situation on its merits, without prejudices. The final lesson of Strether's European experience is to distrust preconceived notions and perceptions from anyone and anywhere, but to rely upon his own observation and judgment. Henry James (1843–1916) was an American-British writer who spent most of his writing career in Britain. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism.
          Acerca de Henry James

          Tras dos estancias en Europa, Henry James (Nueva York, 1843 –Sussex, Inglaterra, 1916) publicó en 1875, su primera novela, Roderick Hudston. Más tarde, vivió durante dos años en París, donse conoció a alagunos de los grandes maestros europeos de la época (Turgenev, Flaubert y Zola), que influyeron decisivamente en su estilo. En 1876, tras escribir El americano, se estableció en Inglaterra, donde publicó sus obras más conocidas: Daisy Miller (1879), Washington Square (1880), El sitio de Londres (1883), Los papeles de Aspern (1888), Lo que Maisie sabía (1897) y Otra vuelta de tuerca (1898), en las que demostró su habilidad para mostrar la lucha entre deseo y convención, y aportó una visión crítica de la moral americana. Para muchos Henry James es el precursor de la novela psicológica moderna y la principal influencia de autores tan importantes como James Joyce o Virginia Woolf
