Overview

ANNOTATED:

* Contains literary critiques, detailed biographies, and detailed historical context


OVERVIEW:

Atypically for Henry James' work, The Bostonians deals with explicitly political themes: feminism and the general role of women in society. The novel is a bittersweet tragicomedy that centers on Basil Ransom, an unbending political conservative from Mississippi; Olive Chancellor, Ransom's cousin and a zealous Boston feminist; and Verena Tarrant, a protégée of Olive's in the feminist movement. The storyline concerns the contest between Ransom and Olive for Verena's allegiance and affection, though the novel also includes a wide panorama of political activists, newspapermen, and eccentrics.

This Special Critical Edition of The Bostonians (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.

This edition contains special NOOKbook enabled features, including interactive table of contents.
