Published in 1886, Henry James's The Bostonians begins with the arrival in Boston of Basil Ransom, a young Mississippi lawyer who is looking to begin a career. Through his cousin, Olive Chancellor, Ransom comes to meet Verena, the beautiful daughter of a charlatan faith-healer and showman. When they hear Verena talk, Olive hopes to win the girl over to the feminist cause, while Ransom is attracted to her looks and a battle for possession of the girl begins. With its discussion of the situation of women and its uncompromising depiction of the city and the media, The Bostonians is an immediately accessible novel.
