Amy's Slant on literature…

The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

Posted on: 09/04/2010


A beautifully written novel about society, social protocols and love. It divides its themes between the pleasure of romance and the demands of society and personal freedom. Edith Wharton grew up privileged and understood these themes very personally. I have enjoyed all her work. Edith Wharton was the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Her other wonderful novels include Ethan Frome and The House of Mirth. Enjoy!
