The Age of Innocence
The Age of Innocence
Wharton, Edith
The Age of Innocence (winner of the 1921 Pulitzer Prize), is a tale of desire and betrayal, set in the golden age of 1920s New York. It tells the story of Newland Archer, a rich lawyer from an aristocratic family, happily engaged to society beauty May Welland. The complex, social constructs of their lives are thrown into disarray, however, with the arrival of May's cousin, the Countess Ellen Olenska, into their gilded circle. Ellen, recently separated from her dissolute Polish count husband, is everything that May is not - carefree, unconventional, artistic, and Archer falls hopelessly in love with her. Caught between his passion for Ellen and his duty to May, Archer has to make a decision between the women that will determine the rest of their lives.
