Felix Young and his sister the Baroness Munster descend upon their Puritan cousins, the Wentworths, in the Arcadian setting of the New England countryside of mid-nineteenth century America. The inevitable clash between European epicureanism and Puritan restraint ensues, providing humour, paradox, and some revealing insight.
Truly one of James's masterpieces, The Europeans constitutes a dazzling performance of delicacy and wit.
