The Age Of Innocence Pdf
The Age of Innocence is a 1920 novel by the American author Edith Wharton. It was her twelfth novel and was initially serialized in 1920 in four parts, in the magazine Pictorial Review. Later that year, it was released as a book by D. Appleton & Company. It won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making Wharton the first woman to win the prize. Though the committee had initially agreed to give the award to Sinclair Lewis for Main Street, the judges, in rejecting his book on political grounds, “established Wharton as the American ‘First Lady of Letters'”. The story is set in the 1870s, in upper-class, “Gilded-Age” in New York City. Wharton wrote the book in her 50s after she had established herself as a strong author, with publishers clamoring for her work.
The Age Of Innocence Summary
Newland Archer, gentleman lawyer and heir to one of New York City’s best families, is happily anticipating a highly desirable marriage to the sheltered and beautiful May Welland. Yet he finds a reason to doubt his choice of bride after the appearance of Countess Ellen Olenska, May’s exotic and beautiful 30-year-old cousin. Ellen has returned to New York from Europe after scandalously separating herself (per rumor) from a bad marriage to a Polish count. At first, Ellen’s arrival and its potential taint on the reputation of his bride-to-be’s family disturb Newland, but he becomes intrigued by the worldly Ellen, who flouts New York society’s fastidious rules. As Newland’s admiration for the countess grows, so does his doubt about marrying May, a perfect product of Old New York society; his match with May no longer seems the ideal fate he had imagined.
