Author Info
Edith Wharton
Born to a wealthy New York family, Edith Wharton, who eventually wrote over 50 works, spent much of her childhood in Europe developing an appreciation for the arts. In 1885 she married a wealthy banker, Edward Robbins Wharton, and turned to writing--books on decorating, then novels. In 1906, Wharton moved to Paris where she was engaged in a passionate affair with Morton Fullerton. In 1913 she divorced her husband. By this time, Wharton had achieved fame and began spending time among a society of writers and intellectuals that included Henry James. THE AGE OF INNOCENCE, just one of her many classic works, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1920. In addition to her novels, Wharton produced poetry, travel books, and literary criticism.
"Edith Wharton was not a feminist. She has, however, been taken up by feminists who find in her dramas insights about the destructive effect society might have on a woman... The novelist--that is, the good novelist--does not offer solutions, nor does she announce her work as a vehicle of change. But, in delineating the foibles and exposing the tragedies in society, she composes a quiet, subversive song."
"It is so beautifully and succinctly written captures a social yearning and class consciousness that is part of American Lit that I don't think gets appreciated much."
