Description

Edith Wharton?s 1920 The Age of Innocence won her the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making her the first woman to ever win the award and establishing her as one of the most sought-after authors of the early 20th century. The novel follows the winding emotional path of socialite lawyer Newland Archer, set to marry the charming and proper, if sheltered, May Welland. Against his better judgment, he begins to question his decision?and his true attractions?when May?s more worldly, more independent cousin, Countess Ellen Olenska, returns home after her failed marriage to a Polish count. Torn between desire and duty, Newland struggles to reconcile the opposing forces of his private yearning and the golden handcuffs of propriety. Based on Wharton?s own childhood, the novel is at heart a reminiscence on the old-money glamour of high-society New York City, and lays bare the troubling social undercurrent of the American upper class.
