Example text

When Einstein later observed that space-time assumed the form of a 舠curvature舡 when confronted with a massive body, he was working from a set of assumptions in which 舠the propositions of Euclidean geometry cannot hold exactly,舡 and the very 舠idea of a straight line also loses its meaning舡 (Einstein, quoted in Dimock, 舠Rethinking Space, Rethinking Rights,舡 p. 256). In Washington Square, such curvature necessarily undermines not only Dr. Sloper舗s sanguine view of surface geometry, but also the 舠moral satisfaction舡 that such mathematical assumptions produce (p.

In the normative world of Daisy Miller, there can be no decree more damning. Daisy舗s behavior is not so much wicked as it is atypical. As Winterbourne舗s aunt Mrs. Costello blandly observes, 舠Whether or no being hopelessly vulgar is being 舖bad舗 is a question for the metaphysicians. They are bad enough to dislike, at any rate; and for this short life that is quite enough舡 (p. 33). Like Winterbourne and his cohort of reproving Americans, early critics of Daisy Miller took pains to classify and typologize James舗s heroine.

Mr. James, the Times insisted, was obviously 舠possessed by a sincere patriotism舡: Only someone truly committed to his country could 舠[consecrate] his talents to the enlightening of his countrywomen in the view which cynical Europe takes of the performance of the American girl abroad舡 (James舗s 舠Daisy Miller,舡 p. 103). For his own part, James grew weary of the debate and eventually tried to put the matter to rest. In the twenty-four-volume New York Edition (1909), he summarily dropped the story舗s subtitle, 舠A Study,舡 and insisted that the tale had neither prescriptive nor descriptive designs on American womanhood.
