Washington Square

New Edition

Henry James
Edited by Adrian Poole

Oxford World's Classics

  • Washington Square is one of the most instantly appealing of James's early masterpieces, a tale of a trapped daughter and domineering father that has to do with money and love and innocence betrayed.
  • Adrian Poole's excellent introduction shows how James's apparently simple story carries a great depth of meaning and understanding; he discusses its origins and influences, its historical and geographical location, and the delineation of character.
  • Up-to-date bibliography and illuminating notes.
  • Includes James's journal entry in which he recounts the anecdote told him by Fanny Kemble which gave the book its story.
  • Includes a discussion of stage and film adaptations of the novel.
