Bell, Professor of English Literature, University of Keele. Washington Square marks the culmination of Jamess apprentice period as a novelist.

Through the relationships between Austin Sloper, a celebrated physician, and his sister Lavinia Penniman, his daughter Catherine, and Catherines suitor, Morris Townsend, James observes the contemporary scene as a site of competing styles and performances where authentic expression cannot be articulated or is subject to suppression.
