Introduction and Notes by Ian FABell, Professor of English Literature at the University of KeeleWashington Square is the culmination of James’ apprentice period as a novelistWith strongly drawn attention to four main characters, James offers a sharp analysis of middle class manners and behavior in the New York of the 1870s, a period of great change in the life of the cityThis change is explored through the adjusting device of the action novel during the 1840s, just as a period of strong turbulence as the United States recorded the emergence of changing business practices and industrial expansionThrough the relationships between Austin Sloper, a famous doctor, and his sister Lavinia Penniman, his daughter Catherine, and Catherine of the suitor, Morris Townsend, James observes the contemporary scene as a site of styles and performances where authentic expression cannot be articulated or is subjected to repression.
