Rome represented glory and corruption, youth and vigor as well as death and decay. Daisy Miller went through all phases, both in reality and as conceptualized by Winterbourne (in other words, in the mind of her beholder). Starting off the story in the flush of youth, energy, freshness, and expectation, Daisy ends as Rome did ruined and destroyed. And her destruction was in both a moral and physical realm. Moral in that Winterbourne condemned her for her apparently loose morals, and physical in that she died an untimely death. In other ways, Daisy Miller died metaphorically, too, in that her death was unmissed and unmourned by the inhabitants.
James, H. Daisy Miller, Penguin. UK, 1987
