The Europeans is a short novel by James, published in 1878. It is essentially a comedy contrasting the behaviour and attitudes of two visitors from Europe with those of their relatives living in the 'new' world of New England. Eugenia, the daughter of American expatriates, is the morganatic wife of a German prince, who is being urged to divorce her in favour of a state marriage. She and her artist brother, Felix, travel to Boston to meet distant cousins relatives, partially in hopes of making a wealthy marriage. Its wit and gaiety have made this masterly short novel one of the most popular of James' novels.
