Inhaltsangabe:

Basil Ransom, a magnetic Southern gentleman, has moved North to New York City -- away from the impoverished South of the Reconstruction. Poor as Basil is when he arrives, he's also richly talented. . . . His cousin, Olive Chancellor, is in her way tragic: there is so much love behind her cold staring countenance. A stalwart in the women's rights movement of the time, she invites Basil to her home in order to offer help and assistance to her Southern cousin, but she also wishes to save him from the flawed ways he certainly must have taken on growing up in the South. Her self-seeking, ulterior motives fail miserably, of course. It is through Olive that Basil Ransom meets Verena Tarrant, the young woman who has left her lower middle-class family to move in with and be molded by Olive. Verena has a tremendous speaking ability which caught Olive's attention. Verena Tarrant has little else but natural talent--whether the private turmoil of sex and marriage finally draw her from the political sisterhood and what happens to women like Olive, are high-stakes, human questions indeed. . . .

Inhaltsangabe: 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, a veteran of the Civil War who holds 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. When it was first published in 1886, The Bostonians was not welcomed by Henry James's fellow countrymen, who failed to appreciate its delicacy and wit. But over a century later, this book is widely regarded as James's finest American fiction and perhaps his comic masterpiece.
