Podrobný popis:

Publikace: THE CUSTOM OF THE COUNTRY (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - WHARTON, E.. Edith Wharton's satiric anatomy of American society in the first

decade of the twentieth century appeared in 1913; it both appalled

and fascinated its first reviewers, and established her as a major

novelist. The Saturday Review wrote that she had 'assembled as many

detestable people as it is possible to pack between the covers of a

six-hundred page novel', but concluded that the book was

'brilliantly written', and 'should be read as a parable'. It

follows the career of Undine Spragg, recently arrived in New York

from the midwest and determined to conquer high society. Glamorous,

selfish, mercenary and manipulative, her principal assets are her

striking beauty, her tenacity, and her father's money. With her

sights set on an advantageous marriage, Undine pursues her schemes

in a world of shifting values, where triumph is swiftly followed by

dissullusion. Wharton was recreating an environment she knew

intimately, and Undine's education for social success is chronicled

in meticulous detail. The novel superbly captures the world of

post-Civil War America, as ruthless in its social ambitions as in

its business and politics. Readership: Students of

twentieth-century American literature from undergraduate level up. Publikace: THE CUSTOM OF THE COUNTRY (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - WHARTON, E.. nové vydání klasické anglické četby
