Edith Wharton, “The House of Mirth”


A classic evisceration of upper-class, urban America, with the style that only Edith Wharton can bring to the task


First published in 1905, The House of Mirth shocked the New York society it so deftly chronicles, portraying the moral, social and economic restraints on a woman who dared to claim the privileges of marriage without assuming the responsibilities.

More than a century after Wharton published The House of Mirth, the novel’s power remains eternal.


In 1921, Edith Wharton (1862-1937) became the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize, earning the award for The Age of Innocence. Wharton drew upon her insider’s knowledge of the upper-class New York “aristocracy” to realistically portray the lives and morals of the Gilded Age.
