Buccaneers

Author: Edith Wharton, Marion Mainwaring Format: eBook Release Date: 10/07/2018

Set in the 1870s, the same period as Wharton's The Age of Innocence, The Buccaneers is about five wealthy American girls denied entry into New York Society because their parents' money is too new. At the suggestion of their clever governess, the girls sail to London, where they marry lords, earls, and dukes who find their beauty charmingand their wealth extremely useful.After Wharton's death in 1937, The Christian Science Monitor said, "e;If it could have been completed, The Buccaneers would doubtless stand among the richest and most sophisticated of Wharton's novels."e; Now, with wit and imagination, Marion Mainwaring has finished the story, taking her cue from Wharton's own synopsis. It is a novel any Wharton fan will celebrate and any romantic reader will love. This is the richly engaging story of Nan St. George and guy Thwarte, an American heiress and an English aristocrat, whose love breaks the rules of both their societies.

Criticar ficcion

Criticar ficcion

Author: Edith Wharton Format: eBook Release Date: 23/04/2018

Wharton, ademas de una novelista absolutamente actual, cuyos libros se reeditan continuamente, fue durante toda su carrera una activa divulgadora de la lectura y la escritura, de la gran literatura en todas sus formas. En sus ensayos y articulos Wharton se ocupo de la obra de contemporaneos como Henry James y de clasicos como Proust o Eliot, trazo perfiles biograficos de sus autores predilectos, reseno los titulos que consideraba necesarios, analizo los vicios y virtudes de la critica de libros y tendio puentes, en definitiva, entre la creacion literaria y su recepcion, es decir, unio en una misma la mirada del autor y la del lector. Criticar ficcin no es un libro para crticos literarios, sino para lectores preocupados por los mecanismos de la ficcin y sus alrededores, dispuestos a conocer la visin de Edith Wharton tanto sobre la crtica como sobre la ficcin, en sus sentidos ms amplios. Un volumen en el que la gran escritora analiza las tendencias y los valores de la literatura, repasa la relacin de la crtica con las obras o el concepto de "e;gran novela americana"e;, rinde tributo a sus autores de cabecera, reflexionando, adems, de manera esplndida sobre su propia obra.

Escribir ficcion

Escribir ficcion

Author: Edith Wharton Format: eBook Release Date: 23/04/2018

Wharton, la primera mujer en recibir el prestigioso Premio Pulitzer y, seguramente, la novelista norteamericana mas importante de su generacion, publico en la revista Scribner's a mediados de los anos veinte una serie de ensayos dedicados a la tecnica, la practica y el oficio de la creacion literaria. Escribir ficcion es una brillante aproximacion a las claves de la ficcion moderna, en el que, con sencillez y rigor, desgrana tecnicas y recursos para desarrollar el estilo y la estructura narrativa, contar un cuento o desarrollar los personajes, entre otros aspectos y mecanismos. Escribir ficcin es un notable "e;manual de escritura creativa"e; con visos de convertirse en referencia indispensable en la bibliografa del gnero, pero no solo: con un captulo dedicado a Marcel Proust y un broche a este volumen acerca de la lectura, es posible, al mismo tiempo, compartir las experiencias propias de un creador inimitable como, sin duda, lo fue la autora de La edad de la inocencia.

Initially serialized in the Pictorial Review in 1920, The Age of Innocence is a stylistic and intimate portrayal of upper class life in New York City during the Gilded Age. Lawyer and socialite Newland Archer is about to enter a loveless marriage with a well-to-do bride, when her cousin, the exotic Ellen Olenska, enters the picture. Olenska is stuck in a bad marriage with a Polish count, and Archer finds himself in the awkward position of persuading her to save her family's reputation by staying with her husband, even though Archer himself has fallen in love with her. Combining a romantic tragedy with artful descriptions of aristocratic life in New York City, Edith Wharton's twelfth novel is now available as an elegantly designed clothbound edition with an elastic closure and a new introduction.

Newland Archer could not dream of anyone better suited to be his fiancee than his beloved, May Welland. She's innocent and beautiful and comes from a well-regarded aristocratic family. So why can't Newland stop thinking about May's cousin, the scandalous Countess Ellen Olenska? Not only does the Countess wear revealing clothing and express unconventional (and unpopular) views, she's also rumored to have done the unacceptable: divorce her husband, the Polish Count. Yet despite it all, Newland cannot help but feel that May is a bland debutante compared to her cousin. As their wedding approaches, Archer must decide if the rules of society are more important than his personal happiness. First published in 1920, this is an unabridged version of Edith Warton's Pulitzer Prize-winning American novel.

House of Mirth

House of Mirth

Author: Edith Wharton Format: eBook Release Date: 15/05/2017

The House of Mirth, a novel by Edith Wharton (1862-1937), tells the story of Lily Bart, a well-born but impoverished woman belonging to New York City's high society around the turn of the last century. Wharton creates a portrait of a stunning beauty who, though raised and educated to marry well both socially and economically, is reaching her 29th year, an age when her youthful blush is drawing to a close and her marital prospects are becoming ever more limited. The House of Mirth traces Lily's slow two-year social descent from privilege to a tragically lonely existence on the margins of society. Wharton uses Lily as an attack on "e;an irresponsible, grasping and morally corrupt upper class."e; Before publication as a book on October 14, 1905, The House of Mirth was serialized in Scribner's Magazine beginning in January 1905. It attracted a readership among housewives and businessmen alike. Charles Scribner wrote Edith in November 1905 that the novel was showing "e;the most rapid sale of any book ever published by Scribner."e; By the end of December sales had reached 140,000 copies. Edith's royalties were valued at more than half a million dollars in today's currency. The commercial and critical success of The House of Mirth solidified Wharton's reputation as a major novelist. Because of the novel's commercial success, some critics classified it as a genre novel. However, Edith's pastor, then rector of Trinity Church in Manhattan, wrote to tell her that her novel was "e;a terrible but just arraignment of the social misconduct which begins in folly and ends in moral and spiritual death."e; This moral purpose was not lost on the literary reviewers and critics of the time who tended to categorize it as both social satire and a novel of manners. Carol Singley in her Introduction to Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth: A Case Book states, "e;[The House of Mirth] is a unique blend of romance, realism, and naturalism,[and thus] transcends the narrow classification of a novel of manners."e;

Age of Innocence

Age of Innocence

Author: Edith Wharton Format: eBook Release Date: 02/05/2017

The Age of Innocence is Edith Wharton's twelfth novel, initially serialized in four parts in the Pictorial Review magazine in 1920, and later released by D. Appleton and Company as a book in New York and in London. It won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making Wharton the first woman to win the prize. Though the committee initially agreed to award the prize to Sinclair Lewis, the judges rejected his Main Street on political grounds and "e;established Wharton as the American 'First Lady of Letters'"e;, the irony being that the committee had awarded The Age of Innocence the prize on grounds that negated Wharton's own blatant and subtle ironies, which constitute and make the book so worthy of attention. The story is set in upper-class New York City in the 1870s, during the Gilded Age. Wharton wrote the book in her 50s, after she had established herself as a strong author with publishers clamoring for her work. The Age of Innocence centers on an upper-class couple's impending marriage, and the introduction of the bride's cousin, plagued by scandal, whose presence threatens their happiness. Though the novel questions the assumptions and morals of 1870s New York society, it never develops into an outright condemnation of the institution.The novel is noted for Wharton's attention to detail and its accurate portrayal of how the 19th-century East Coast American upper class lived, and the social tragedy of its plot. 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. It is believed to have been drawn from the popular 1785 painting A Little Girl by Sir Joshua Reynolds that later became known as The Age of Innocence and was widely reproduced as the commercial face of childhood in the later half of the 18th century.

Ethan Frome is a novella by the Pulitzer Prize-winning American author Edith Wharton. It is set in the fictitious town of Starkfield, Massachusetts. The novel was adapted into a film, Ethan Frome, in 1993. The novel is framed by the literary device of an extended flashback. The prologue opens with an unnamed male narrator spending a winter in Starkfield, a fictional town in New England, while in the area on business. He spots a limping, quiet man around the village, who is somehow compelling in his demeanor and carriage. Curious, the narrator sets out to learn about him. He learns that Frome's limp arose from having been injured in a "e;smash-up"e; twenty-four years before, but further details are not forthcoming. Chance circumstances arise that allow the narrator to hire Frome as his driver for a week. A severe snowstorm during one of their journeys forces Frome to allow the narrator to shelter at his home one night. Just as the two are entering Frome's house, the prologue ends. We then embark on the "e;first"e; chapter (Chapter I), which takes place twenty-four years prior. The narration switches from the first-person narrator of the prologue to a limited third-person narrator. In Chapter I, Ethan is waiting outside a church dance to walk home Mattie, his wife's cousin, who has for a year lived with Ethan and his sickly wife, Zeena (Zenobia), in order to help out around the house and farm. It is quickly clear that Ethan has feelings for Mattie. It also becomes clear that Zeena has observed enough to understand that he has these feelings and resents them.

House of Mirth

The classic tale of a young woman's struggle for love and money from the Pulitzer Prizewinning author of Ethan Frome and The Age of Innocence. Raised among New York's high society, Lily Bart is beautiful, charming, and entirely without means. Determined to maintain the extravagant lifestyle to which she is accustomed, Lily embarks on a mission to marry a wealthy man who can secure her station. However, the businesslike proposals from her many suitors remain fruitless, and her thoughts keep returning to the one man she truly loves. Bedeviled by debt, betrayal, and vicious gossip, she is forced to confront the tragic cruelty just beneath the surface of the Gilded Age. First appearing in Scribner's Magazine as a monthly serial, The House of Mirth was a runaway bestseller upon its release as a full-length novel in 1905. Hailed as ';a fireworks display of brilliantly sardonic social satire deepened by a story of thwarted love' by the Wall Street Journal, it was the first popular and critical success for Edith Wharton, who went on to become the first female author to win the Pulitzer Prize. Since its initial publication, The House of Mirth has been adapted into two feature films and continues to captivate modern readers. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
