Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Set in New York, this closely constructed novel belongs to James' early period. like "Portrait of a Lady" it studies the plight of an innocent heiress who is deceived by the looks and charm of a worthless suitor. At the same time she is striving to be loyal to a cold and forbidding father.

Synopsis:

Inspired by a story Henry James heard at a dinner party, Washington Square tells how the rakish but idle Morris Townsend tries to win the heart of heiress Catherine Sloper against the objections of her father. Precise and understated, the book endures as a matchless social study of New York in the mid-nineteenth century.
