* Contains literary critiques, detailed biographies, and detailed historical context
Often compared to Jane Austen's work for the clarity and grace of its prose and its intense focus on family relationships, Henry James' novel Washington Square is a deceptively simple tragicomedy that has become one of the most popular works in the Jamesian canon. "Everybody likes Washington Square, even the denigrators of Henry James," wrote critic Donald Hall, and most other commentators have echoed the sentiment.
This Special Critical Edition of Washington Square (Cambridge World Classics) is the only volume which contains the complete unabridged novel along with three bonus critical and biographical essays which examine, in depth, Henry James' life and literary legacy.
