9780333407301: Edith Wharton (Women Writers)

19th century American writers often differ by gender in the stories they tell about the American experience. The male quest most often depicts the hero's journey away from the domestic world of women; the female quest situates the heroine within the domestic world of marriage and motherhood. This study considers Edith Wharton's fiction in opposition to both the male pastoral romance and the female domestic novel. Like other American women writers, Wharton places her protagonists within the social, domestic world. Unlike male romancers who celebrate escape from society, she depicts the inevitable bond or covenant between the individual and the group. Wharton differs, however, from the female novelists who celebrate domesticity by emphasizing the bonds or restrictions the group imposes on the individual.

From the Back Cover:

This stimulating reassessment of Edith Wharton by a leading authority on her work, will help to place Wharton's fiction against the nineteenth-century 'gendered' literary models. Like other American women writers, Wharton puts her protagonists within the social domestic world, but unlike them she emphasizes the restrictions imposed by the group on the individual.
