dc.description.abstract Taking issue with the dominant critical tendency to view The Portrait of a Lady through the aesthetic lens of a novel of education, the author argues that Isabel's decision to return to Osmond must be recognized for an explicitly ethical act in a Lacanian sense, whose ultimate function is to guarantee the James heroine's transcendental freedom. en_US
