About this product
- DescriptionThe great American velist Edith Wharton (1862-1937) here gives us her colorful and textured travel memoir In Morroco (1920). Still a deeply energized work, Wharton imbues the reader with a sense of wonder that served as the impetus for her travels into this exotic Northern African land. Edith Wharton made her name as a velist closely associated with the prolific Henry James. Their personal and literary kinship may be seen in much of her long and short fiction. And just as Henry James' travel vels arrest and captivate, so too does In Morocco. This account explores the culture, history, and beauty of a Morocco of yore in an intriguing combination of realist and romantic prose. Wharton weaves together anthropology with poetry, depicting the customs and manners of this place in all its splendor. Written with the eye of a documentarian, In Morocco is a breath-taking read full of wanderlust.
