With his creative use of point of view and interior monologue, Henry James brought a new level of depth to narrative fiction. The Europeans is no exception. A light comedy, The Europeans offers a contrast between two visitors from Europe, Eugenia Munster and Felix Young, and their relatives in the New World. The short novel is notable for its comparisons between European and American women in the middle of the 19th century, which sheds an interesting light on attitudes and values of the time. The Europeans first appeared in print in an 1878 issue of The Atlantic Monthly.
