I have chosen to present the novel Washington Square, which was written by Henry James and published as a book in 1881.

Henry James was born in 1843 in New York City in a wealthy family of intellectuals. James's father was a prominent theologian and philosopher and could provide for him, enabling him to travel a lot and to study in many different places around the world.

He is a very well-known author in his era as his works include different kinds of books, among which there are novels, plays, travel books and criticism. But he was known mostly for his novels with major works which are still read a lot (for example Daisy Miller, The Portrait of a lady). He also wrote The Turn of the screw, which was turned into films many times in the last few decades.
