This site was created to explore the life and works of Edith Wharton. While though now archived, the small collection of pages and posts are meant for anyone interested in casual musings on Wharton, with a limited (but hopefully thought-provoking) point-of-view.
It is my belief that many of the explored themes and issues, birthed from the historical environment in which Wharton lived, directly relate to our contemporary time period. It has been here that I’ve tried to “connect the dots” between the two.
Happy reading, and thanks for visiting!
