Overview

The Bostonians was first published in serialized form in The Century Magazine in 1885 and 1886. It was published in book form in London in 1886. A change from Henry James look at Europeans, the novel is a study of the American scene.

James had high hopes for its success and was very disappointed with its slow sales. Critics feel it lakes a sympathetic character and that the descriptions of New England life lack spark. Chapters with no dialogue at all test the most diligent of Henry James aficionados.

The Bostonians is different from most of James books due to its strong political, rather than social, theme.
