I’m sooooooooo ready to be done with Henry James’ Portrait of a Lady. Isabel has been a delightful character to get to know, but now that the deception around her is unraveling, it’s difficult to watch her life unfold. I will finish the book, but found this tidbit on YouTube as a diversion. Nicole Kidman is a great choice for Isabel’s Character. The portrayal is a little more severe, even pathetic, than I had imagined Isabel.
The best part about picking a theme, is that all forms of media aid in the systematic unpacking of it! Stay tuned for next year’s theme.
