    The story is one of only two novels by Wharton to be set in New England. The novel details the sexual awakening of its protagonist, Charity Royal, and shares many plot similarities with Wharton's better known novel, "Ethan Frome". Only moderately well-received when originally published, "Summer" has had a resurgence in critical popularity since the 1960's.

    The Age of Innocence is a powerful depiction of love and desire in New York's glamorous Gilded Age. When Newland Archer, happily engaged to May Welland, meets his fiancée's cousin Ellen, his entire future is cast into doubt: strong-willed, witty, and entirely unpretentious, Ellen is unlike any woman he has ever met. He is torn between his infatuation for her and his duty to marry May. In subtle and elegant language, Wharton delivers a critical look at the social mores of the time.

    Questo romanzo, con cui l'autrice vinse il premio Pulitzer nel 1921 (ed era la prima volta che una donna vinceva quel premio), parla della New York del 1870, della famosa Gilded Age. Ma dietro l'oro apparente, si nasconde la rete di convinzioni, tradizioni e ipocrisia che imprigiona il protagonista così inevitabilmente da renderlo egli stesso, col tempo, acquiescente alla propria prigionia.
