This chapter presents a reading of Woolson’s East Angels, which traces the encounters between a group of transplanted northerners and the local Floridians: the impoverished gentry, the African American house servants and field hands, and the poor whites of the region. It examines the “lapidary comedy of North/South manners” in the novel. It then considers the novel’s ultimate tragedy and, through it, Woolson’s unsparing commentary on James.
