He leaves to return to his original self, the man who was enthralled by Daisy Miller’s quirks and unusual attitude. James makes Winterbourne’s perception of Miller the villain of the story, even somewhat suggesting that it took part in her death. As the only male author of the three, James possesses a care for a woman such as Daisy Miller unusual for the 19th century. Although she is portrayed as ignorant and vulgar, there is a certain sweetness and well meaning in her manner. A woman like Daisy Miller would likely be treated as a pariah in the 1800s, so there is a glimpse into James’ own opinions through his characterization of Daisy Miller as the titular character.
