    New York's Gilded Age was a time in which many, if not all, of the city's residents were forced to locate within themselves a spirit of vitality, survival, and whatever wealth they could muster. Yet, far above the downtown tenements and working class slums of this new world, three well-to-do young adults were caught in a struggle of their own; to figure out just how love and emotion can prevail among the complexities of high society. 'The Age of Innocence' is Edith Wharton's hauntingly incisive exploration of love, wealth, and heartbreak-- as can still be found in New York today-- insuch a way that readers of this masterpiece will surely tell; never again will a novel of its kind capture such grace.

    Ethan Frome, a poor, downtrodden New England farmer, is trapped in a loveless marriage to his invalid wife, Zeena. His ambition and intelligence are oppressed by Zeena's cold, conniving character. When Zeena's young cousin Mattie arrives to help care for her, Ethan is immediately taken by Mattie's warm, vivacious personality. They fall desperately in love as he realizes how much is missing from his life and marriage. Tragically, their love is doomed by Zeena's ever-lurking presence and by the social conventions of the day. Ethan remains torn between his sense of obligation and his urge to satisfy his heart's desire up to the suspenseful and unanticipated conclusion. Perhaps reflective of Wharton's own loveless marriage, this sophisticated, star-crossed love story vividly depicts her abhorrence of society's relentless standards of loyalty. Ethan Frome is one of Wharton's most popular and best-known works.

    Kate Orme is a young woman whose illusions of marital bliss are shattered when she comes face to face with the dark secret harbored by her fiance, the wealthy and deceptively ebullient Denis. Kate decides to go ahead and marry Denis, however, as a selfless gesture to protect any children he may conceive from inheriting their father's moral weakness. The couple does have a child, Dick, and in a marriage with a man that Kate has admittedly ceased to love, she transfers her original affections for Denis to their son.Denis dies suddenly and Kate is left to raise their young son. Knowing that Dick could have inherited the faults of his father, Kate anticipates a time when Dick's morality will be severely tested. That time comes years later when Dick, and eligible bachelor and aspiring professional, is faced with a dilemma that will affect the course of his life.

    (NYRB Classics series). It was in New York City that Edith Wharton's literary and cultural sensibility was formed. The regular rows of somber brownstones, the inexorable codes of behavior, the solid layers of bullion on which the elegant social structure stood - all played a crucial part in the awakening of Wharton's mind. Though she moved in 1911 to France, where she spent the rest of her life, New York continued to figure for her as a fixed point of reference - the North Star on the firmament of her imagination. This original collection shows the arc of Wharton's own response to the city that shaped her view of the world. Twenty stories. 452p.
