小说艺术大师亨利•詹姆斯的中篇小说经典。金钱与爱情之间,单纯的富家女凯瑟琳将如何选择?

To own a house in Washington Square is a sign of success in nineteenth-century New York, and Dr Austin Sloper is a successful man. He is also fashionable, interesting, amusing and clever. His daughter Catherine is non of those things. She is a good, simple girl, who loves and admires her father and always tries hard to please him, but she is a great disappointment to him. Dr. Sloper does not expect any interest or excitement from Catherine. But life in Washington Square does become rather exciting, after all. Romance arrives, in the shape of a handsome young man who comes to court Catherine. Dr Sloper, however, looks at young Mr Townsend rather differently. The Doctor is a rich man, and is conscious that after his death Catherine will inherit a fortune of 30,000 dollars a year. He wonders why such a charming and handsome young man is courting his dull daughter...

Washington Square is a short novel by Henry James. Originally published in 1880 as a serial in Cornhill Magazine and Harper's New Monthly Magazine, it is a structurally simple tragicomedy that recounts the conflict between a dull but sweet daughter and her brilliant, unemotional father. The plot of the novel is based upon a true story told to James by his close friend. The book is often compared with Jane Austen's work for the clarity and grace of its prose and its intense focus on family relationships.

亨利•詹姆斯(1843-1916),著名小说家、文艺评论家,心理分析小说的开创者。詹姆斯偏爱“国际小说”的题材,尤其擅长描写清白、丰富、民主的美国与古老、腐朽、堕落的欧洲之间的矛盾。他对人物的内心世界的刻画使他成为20世纪意识流运动的先驱。亨利•詹姆斯的创作生涯无疑是美国文学史上最长、最多产、最有影响的,他是19世纪至20世纪最伟大的散文作家与文体家之一,也被公认为运用小说艺术最巧妙的大师。

Henry James(15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American-born British writer. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He is best known for a number of novels showing Americans encountering Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from a character's point of view allowed him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and unreliable narrators brought a new depth to narrative fiction.

19世纪上半叶,纽约住着一位事业很成功的一生。他成功的秘诀有两条。毫无疑问,他是一个德才兼备的好医生。此外,他还知道怎样令病人满意。他对病人所患的疾病总是不厌其烦地详加解释,而且也总是给他们开些药。真的,他的病人都喜欢说给他们看病的是国内最棒的医生。

In the first half of the nineteenth century there lived in New York a very successful doctor. His success was for two reasons. He was, without doubt, a good doctor, intelligent and honest, but he also knew how to please his patients. He gave long, careful explanations about the illness, and always gave them some medicine to take. Indeed, his patients were fond of saying that they had the best doctor in the country.
