This essay discusses how Edith Wharton fits into the turn of the twentieth century and its discontents as a writer accurately depicting society and its sometimes traumatic transformations, especially for women. While bearing in mind Wharton's refusal to be labelled as a woman writer, it places her in the context of the social condition of women in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and in connection with other contemporary women writers, before focusing on Wharton's position in this rather complex picture in terms of her ideas and artistic achievements.

Abstract

This essay discusses how Edith Wharton fits into the turn of the twentieth century and its discontents as a writer accurately depicting society and its sometimes traumatic transformations, especially for women. While bearing in mind Wharton's refusal to be labelled as a woman writer, it places her in the context of the social condition of women in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and in connection with other contemporary women writers, before focusing on Wharton's position in this rather complex picture in terms of her ideas and artistic achievements.
