An early contrast is suggested by the actions of young Randolph. He is more forward than the  European youths would be, and he has no qualms about approaching a stranger. When Daisy Miller  does the same, we are prepared to accept this as a part of the American character. Young Randolph  is also quite frank: He tells Winterborne with all sincerity that American men are better than  European men. The statement was not meant as a specific compliment to Winterborne, but serves  as one anyway. It is with the appearance of Daisy Miller herself that the contrast between the two cultures or two  systems of values is expanded. Daisy approaches with the confidence of a person accustomed to a  certain amount of independence. Thus, two of the American qualities are those of confidence and  independence. Even young Randolph has more freedom than do his European counterparts. As

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
