Oil and Vinegar After reading The American I find myself with a sort of Mirror Image in The Europeans In the former the American man who feels boundless explores and gets burnt in the Europe full of boundaries In The Europeans we find a couple of siblings who feel bound and look for a way out in the open and clear new world This time there is a split for we are talking The contraposition of America and its values and Europe and its culture is an ongoing theme in James s works just as oil and vinegar are found in one way or another in most salads Sometimes their respective flavors and textures mix well sometimes they remain distinctly apart without resolving into an emulsified blendThe title is however somewhat misleading The Europeans are not really such They are the offspring of uprooted Americans who have grown knowing that there was always an alternative to their existence Different from the Europeans who unless forced by dire conditions would not consider once that their lives could be lived otherwise But the title is not misleading in that these siblings remain undefined in their Europeanness They speak English French Italian and German and are not really rooted in any particular European country Their otherness in the clear sober defined austere constrained world remains somewhat theoretical and vagueThis second novel presents a much restricted setting than the one in The American and the reader often feels as if she is were facing a stage in the theater The profusion of lively and effective dialogue that can be easily uoted or recited as well as the enclosed spaces and the emphasis on costumes contradicts somehow the suggestion of the limitless space of the New World This theatrical tone ought not to surprise the reader however given that James if unsuccessful had always wanted to write dramaAt the end the plot and the characters are clearly closed in and resolved in a somewhat uncharacteristic fashion for this writer And this reinforces the nature of this short novel as a light comedy the curtains are drawn and the spectators can gather their belongings and go back to their daily lives without further adoBut James called this a sketch and it seems that differently to the pictorial artists he understood sketches as defined than the final work with a loose textureThe oil and vinegar succeeded in making this a delicious read
