Summary
"The Age of Innocence marks the pinnacle of Edith Wharton's career as one of the finest American novelists of her era. The narrative follows Newland Archer, of upper-crust 1870s New York, whose passion for the mysterious Countess Ellen Olenska leads him to question the very foundations of his way of life. Written in the aftermath of World War I, the novel explores the psychological and cultural paradoxes of desire in a world undergoing unprecedented transformations." "This edition includes a critical introduction and a range of appendices that contextualize the novel in terms of its modernist themes and tensions."--BOOK JACKET
