Edith Wharton: Sex, Satire and the Older Woman

90,94 € Lieferbar in 5-7 Tagen


Wharton's late and critically-neglected novels are reclaimed as experimental in form and radical in content in this book, which also suggests that her portrayal of older female characters in her last six novels anticipates contemporary unease about the cultural marginalization of the older woman in Western society.
