No readers and playgoers who remember The Heiress (1948), The Innocents (1950), The Aspern Papers (1958), and The Wings of the Dove (1963) will delight in The Bostonians, drawn from one of the few Jamees novels exclusively American in setting and theme.- I wished to write a very American tale, James wrote in his Notebooks -- a tale very characteristic of our social conditions- and I asked myself what was the most salient and peculiar point in our social life.

The answer was: the situation of women, the decline of the sentiment of sex, the agitation on their behalf.
