About the Book

Henry James released his little novel The Europeans: A Sketch in 1878. In essence, it is a comedy that contrasts the actions and viewpoints of two European tourists with those of their relatives who reside in the "new" world of New England. The Atlantic Monthly published the serialized version of the book from July to October of 1878. The story begins in Boston and New England in the middle of the 19th century and details the transition from the old to the new world for two European siblings. Eugenia Münster and Felix Young, the two protagonists, have been traveling between France, Italy, and Germany since they were young children.The patriarchal Mr. Wentworth, his son Clifford, 20, and his two daughters Gertrude and Charlotte captivate Felix. In contrast to Felix, who is content to accept the gift of a little house but values his independence, Eugenia's response is different. Her brother, on the other hand, is perfectly content to spend all of his time with Charlotte and Gertrude, spending countless hours painting portraits in their piazza or garden.
