Resumen

Este estudio se centra en uno de los personajes principales de la novela The Portrait of a Lady DE Henry James y el papel de la sociedad europea en el proceso de victimización femenina. Este análisis pretende ofrecer una nueva perspectiva de la novela y la representación del malvado personaje de Madame Merle. Su metodología consiste, por un lado, en un enfoque cronológico y por el otro, un enfoque sincrónico. La contradicción entre la información recogida tras los análisis nos ha permitido llegar a la conclusión de que el personaje de Madame Merle debe analizarse a la luz del concepto de victimización femenina.
