The Bostonians

by Henry James

From Boston's social underworld emerges Verena Tarrant, a girl with extraordinary oratorical gifts, which she deploys in tawdry meeting-houses on behalf of 'the sisterhood of women. ' She acquires two admirers of a very different stamp: Olive Chancellor, devotee of radical causes, and marked out for tragedy; and Basil Ransom, veteran of the Civil War, with rigid views concerning society and women's place therein. Is the lovely, lighthearted Verena made for public movements or private passions? A struggle to possess her, body and soul, develops between Olive and Basil. The exploitation of Verena's unregenerate innocence reflects a society whose moral and cultural values are failing to survive the new dawn of liberalism and democracy. The Bostonians (1886) was not welcomed by James's fellow countrymen, who failed to appreciate its delicacy and wit; but a century later, this book is widely regarded as James's finest American fiction, and perhaps his comic masterpiece.

The Bostonians

by Henry James

"As devastating in its wit as it is sharp in its social critique of sexual politics. No writer in America has dared the subject before. No one has done it so well since. "-- The New Republic Described by the esteemed literary scholar Terry Castle as the first "lesbian novel" written in English--that is, "the first nonpornographic work in Anglo-American literature to engage fully and self-consciously with the love-between-women theme"-- The Bostonians hinges on a rivalry between two distant cousins, a man and a woman, for the love of a beautiful, curiously passive girl named Verena Tarrant, an inspirational speaker whose parents are trying to launch her on the lecture and social circuit during the 1870s. As with all titles in the new Magnus Editions series, The Bostonians includes an overview of the author's work with special attention paid to its queer dimensions, as well as a reading group guide that similarly places emphasis on the sexual politics behind the writing. One of the most celebrated American novelists, Henry James is the author of The Portrait of a Lady and The Turn of the Screw , among other classics.
