About this product
- DescriptionWharton combined her insider's view of America's privileged classes with a brilliant, natural wit to write humorous, incisive vels and short stories of social and psychological insight. She was well acquainted with many of her era's other literary and public figures, including Theodore Roosevelt. The story of Lily Bart, a well-born, but penniless woman of the high society of New York City, who was raised and educated to become wife to a rich man, a hothouse flower for conspicuous consumption. The House of Mirth -- Edith Wharton's sadly insightful tale of Lily Bart's descent from the stratosphere of New York society into a disheveled life of drugs and desperation -- may well be the author's most powerful accomplisment. Lily will haunt you, leaving you with great a sense of personal loss. . . .
