  • ""When a handsome young man begins to court Catherine Sloper, she feels she is very lucky. She is a quiet, gentle girl, but neither beautiful nor clever; no one had ever admired her before, or come to the front parlour of her home in Washington Square to whisper soft words of love to her. But in New York in the 1840s young ladies are not free to marry where they please. Catherine must have her father's permission, and Dr. Sloper is a rich man. One day Catherine will have a fortune of 30,000 dollars a year."--P. [4] of cover."@en
  • "Henry James' stories are classic gems of subtle wit and irony.

  • "In Washington Square (1880), Henry James reminisces about the New York he had known thirty years before as he tells the story of Catherine Sloper and her fortune-seeking suitor Morris Townsend. This perceptively drawn human drama is James' most accessible work and an enduring literary triumph. The plot of Washington Square has the simplicity of old-fashioned melodrama: a plain-looking, good-hearted young woman, the only child of a rich widower, is pursued by a charming but unscrupulous man who seeks the wealth she will presumably inherit. On this premise, Henry James constructed one of his most memorable novels, a story in which love is answered with betrayal and loyalty leads inexorably to despair."--The Introduction by Peter Conn In Washington Square (1880), Henry James reminisces about the New York he had known thirty years before as he tells the story of Catherine Sloper and her fortune-seeking suitor Morris Townsend. This perceptively drawn human drama is James' most accessible work and an enduring literary triumph.

  • "In Washington Square, James draws a minutely detailed portrait of life among the Knickerbocker New York aristocracy with his characteristic attention to historical accuracy. (James drew on his personal knowledge of Washington Square society for the novel. His grandmother lived at No. 18 Washington Square North and he grew up around the corner on Washington Place. In the novel, the main character, Catherine, stands alone, torn among the cultural forces that would have her marry into elite society though she is in love with someone she can never have, in this case, a "remarkably handsome" young rake, Morris Townsend, who wants only her money. Forbidden by her father to marry Morris, Catherine remains unwed until her father's death. When Morris reappears ten years later and again tries to wed her for her wealth, she rejects him, condemning herself to live alone rather than compromise to the corrupt society of both men and women that has constricted her whole life."@en
