Henry James`s only major work set in America, this novel pits Olive Chanceller, a strong-willed women`s suffragist, against Basil Ransom, a romantic, reactionary Southern lawyer, for the soul of a charismatic young woman named Verena Tarrant. Basil prevails in the end, leaving Olive humiliated, but the question remains open as to whether or not Basil and Verena are destined for happiness together. James`s depiction of the New England suffragist movement, as well as his portraits of the three protagonists, are among his most brilliantly subtle and insightful accomplishments.

Christopher Butler is a Student of Christ Church, Oxford, and author of After the Wake, and Interpretation, Deconstruction and Ideology.
