  • The Ambassadors


    The Ambassadors is the story of Lewis Lambert Strether, a man engaged to a widow who sends him to Paris on her behalf to collect her wayward son, Chad. In Europe Strether finds himself intrigued by the more liberal emotional world of Chad and his friends, including the beautiful Marie de Vionnet. Ultimately, though, Strether learns not to let allure and exoticism rule his perceptions and returns to America without Chad, his own goals uncertain.
