Book Condition: Very Good
Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 196 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.The Age of Innocence centers on an upper-class couples impending marriage, and the introduction of a woman plagued by scandal whose presence threatens their happiness. Though the novel questions the assumptions and morals of 1870s New York society, it never devolves into an outright condemnation of the institution. Not to be overlooked is Whartons attention to detail regarding the charms and customs of the upper caste. The novel is lauded for its accurate portrayal of how the 19th-century East Coast American upper class lived, and this, combined with the social tragedy, earned Wharton a Pulitzer Prizethe first Pulitzer awarded to a woman. Edith Wharton was 58 years old at publication; she had lived in that world and had seen it change dramatically by the end of World War I. The title is an ironic comment on the polished outward manners of New York society when compared to its inward machinations. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
