An insightful Wharton bigraphy
by myrradine on June 3, 2007This weighty volume [880 pages] is one the best Wharton biographies available. Hermione Lee who did an excellent job on her biography of Virginia Woolf, has come up with another comprehensive biography of a novelist Edith Wharton [Custom of the Country, House of Mirth, The Age of Innocence]. Through this biography we learn of the complexities of Ms Wharton's life. She was accomplished in many fields, not just writing, and was a well-travelled person, as wellas a dabbler of other pursuits such as interior decorating. Her personal life, we learn, was quite complex, having married young to a much older man, a union that was dissolved after many years, and we also learn of her liaison with an American journalist. We learn that she preferred the company of men as friends and also that most of her inspiration for writing came from her own personal experiences. This is a well-researched compendium on Wharton and is a valuable addition to the library of any Wharton scholar or fan.
