First serialised in the Atlantic Monthly in 1878, The Europeans was published in book form later that year after being heavily revised by James. An early work in his career, following on from The American, the previous year, the novel is unusually set in America, where two siblings, emanating from Europe where they travelled extensively, are trying to settle with their cousins. One of this pair, Eugenia Munster, is seeking an end to an unsuccessful marriage, while the other, Felix Young, is looking to marry for the first time. James' purpose for the novel was as an examination of American society using the Eugenia and Felix as innocent parties against which the omniscient narrator could present the author's observations. Whilst some critics understood this objective, others, many of them contemporary, saw the novel as to slight – at around 59,000 words it only just exceeds a novella size – and in some instances lightly written. Modern assessments have been less harsh.
