Published in 1884, Henry James short novella Pandora follows the development of a relationship between Count Otto Vogelstein and miss Pandora Day; exploring the cultural differences between Europe and the emerging United States, the rise of more spirited and socially free women, and the friction that arises with class mobility. Pandora touches on three themes that fascinated Henry during that era. First was the relationship between Europe and America, ”New Woman” and social and moral tensions during the class mobility towards the end of the nineteenth century.
