9780786705238: The Collected Stories of Edith Wharton

Part One Of Five Parts

Edith Wharton wrote during the first three decades of this century, yet her prose remains remarkably contemporary. Her characters accurately reflect the attitudes of her era, but their hurts are as real as our own. Nor did she skirt the grim issues of her day. As an example, she used the Lizzie Borden murder case as the foundation for her novella CONFESSION.

Edith Wharton was the first woman ever to be awarded both the Gold Medal of the National Institute of Arts and Letters and the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters from Yale University.
