About this title

Synopsis:

Catherine Sloper lives quietly with her father and aunt in New York. When her father dies she will be a rich woman. One day Catherine meets a handsome young man called Morris Townsend. He says he wants to marry her but does he love her or her money? Henry James wrote many books about American society in the nineteenth century. Washington Square is now a successful film with Albert Finney, Maggie Smith and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

From the Inside Flap:

Washington Square follows the coming-of-age of its plain-faced, kindhearted heroine, Catherine Sloper. Much to her father's vexation, a handsome opportunist named Morris Townsend woos the long-suffering heiress, intent on claiming her fortune. When Catherine stubbornly refuses to call off her engagement, Dr. Sloper forces Catherine to choose between her inheritance and the only man she will ever truly love. Cynthia Ozick, in her Introduction to what she calls Henry James's "most American fiction," writes that "every line, every paragraph, every chapter [of Washington Square] is a fleet-footed light brigade, an engine of irony." Precise and understated, this charming novel endures as a matchless study of New York in the mid-nineteenth century.
