    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.

    (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.
