Henry James: Washington Square

Washington Square


Washington Square (1881), by Henry James, tells the story of Catherine Sloper, the plain, obedient daughter of the widowed, well-to-do Dr. August Sloper of Washington Square. When a handsome, feckless man-about-town proposes to Catherine, her father forbids the marriage because he believes the man to be after Catherine's fortune and future inheritance. The conflict between father, daughter, and suitor provokes consequences in the lives of all three that make this story one of James's most piercingly memorable.

When all contact with the mysterious island is suddenly and inexplicably lost, The Survival Guide to Cooking in the Student Kitchen: And the House-sharing Experience! free ebook Captain Shane Schofi eld and four crack Special Forces units parachute in. Nothing prepares them for what they fi nd--the island is a testing ground for a deadly breed of genetically enhanced supersoldiers. You could say they've just entered hell, but this place is much, much worse. . . . And how can you tell the difference between what is passed on and what is simply imitated or learned by habit - between the truly inherited flaw and the self-fulfilling prophecy? Weaving together the voices of five family members, Adam Haslett imagines how a single isolated tragedy can become the event that defines many lives, unfolding a rich and painful novel that has all the makings of an American classic.
