The Age of Innocence

The Age of Innocence

Author(s): Edith Wharton

Location(s): New York City (NYC)

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Late 19th Century



Wharton’s story of the upper classes of Old New York, and Newland Archer’s impossible love for the disgraced Countess Olenska, is a perfectly wrought book about an era when upper-class culture in this country was still a mixture of American and European extracts, and when “society” had rules as rigid as any in history.
