A Forward Glance: New Essays on Edith Wharton

Synopsis

This is the first collection to focus on Edith Wharton and questions of biography, autobiography, and aesthetics, and it explores her fiction and nonfiction with particular attention to gender, race, and class. The volume highlights previously unpublished manuscripts and letters -- notably, an unfinished short story composed in Italian and Wharton's correspondence with landscape architect Beatrix Farrand, her niece.
