The plot of Washington Square has the simplicity of old-fashioned melodrama: a plain-looking, good-hearted young woman, the only child of a rich widower, is pursued by a charming but unscrupulous man who seeks the wealth she will presumably inherit. On this premise, Henry James constructed one of his most memorable novels, a story in which love is answered with betrayal and loyalty leads inexorably to despair."

-- from the Introduction by Peter Conn

In Washington Square (1880), Henry James reminisces about the New York he had known thirty years before as he tells the story of Catherine Sloper and her fortune-seeking suitor Morris Townsend. This perceptively drawn human drama is James' most accessible work and an enduring literary triumph.

This edition of Washington Square has been prepared by Peter Conn, Andrea Mitchell Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania.

Descriere RO Intriga din Washington Square are simplitatea melodramei de moda veche: o tanara cu aspect simplu, cu inima buna, singurul copil al unui vaduv bogat, este urmarita de un barbat fermecator, dar fara scrupule, care cauta averea pe care probabil o va mosteni. Pe aceasta premisa, Henry James a construit unul dintre cele mai memorabile romane ale sale, o poveste in care dragostea este raspunsa cu tradare si loialitate duce inexorabil la disperare. "- Din Introducere de Peter Conn In Washington Square (1880), Henry James aminteste despre New York-ul pe care il cunoscuse cu treizeci de ani inainte cand povesteste despre Catherine Sloper si pe pretendentul ei in cautarea averii, Morris Townsend.
