Summary
"Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth captured the attention of a large portion of the American reading public when it was published in a serial version in Scribner's in 1905 and then as a hardback in October of that year. Wharton's story of Lily Bart, a "social parasite," according to Edmund Wilson, "on the fringes of the very rich," topped one best-seller list for four months. The novel sealed the author's reputation as one of the major English-language fiction writers of her generation. Each of the four essays collected in this volume of The American Novel series makes distinctive new claims for the historical, critical, and theoretical significance of Wharton's seminal work."--BOOK JACKET
