Podrobný popis:

Publikace: THE AGE OF INNOCENCE (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - WHARTON, E.. The Age of Innocence is a love story, and a minute dissection of

old New York society in the 1870s. Its brilliant anatomization of

the snobbery and hypocrisy of this wealthy elite made it an instant

classic, and it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1921. Stephen Orgel's

introduction and notes set the novel in the context of the period

and discusses Wharton's skilfull weaving of characters and plot,

her anthropological exactitude, and the novel's autobiographical

overtones. The novel is perhaps Wharton's best-known book following

Martin Scorsese's 1993 film version, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and

Michelle Pfeiffer 'They lived in a kind of hieroglyphic world,

where the real thing was never said or done or even thought, but

only represented by a set of arbitrary signs.' Edith Wharton's most

famous novel, written immediately after the end of the First World

War, is a brilliantly realized anatomy of New York society in the

1870s, the world in which she grew up, and from which she spent her

life escaping. Newland Archer, Wharton's protagonist, charming,

tactful, enlightened, is a thorough product of this society; he

accepts its standards and abides by its rules but he also

recognizes its limitations. His engagement to the impeccable May

Welland assures him of a safe and conventional future, until the

arrival of May's cousin Ellen Olenska puts all his plans in

jeopardy. Independent, free-thinking, scandalously separated from

her husband, Ellen forces Archer to question the values and

assumptions of his narrow world. As their love for each other

grows, Archer has to decide where his ultimate loyalty lies.
