« back to classes page

The House of Mirth, Edith Wharton’s second novel, quickly became a bestseller in 1905 and rocketed her to literary fame. Lily Bart, the young, lovely, and orphaned heroine, is negotiating the rarefied world of New York high society in the early twentieth century, torn between love and money, conscience and personal advancement, security and excitement. Wharton lacerates the upper-crust society she knew so well – and keeps her readers guessing about Lily’s fate until the very end. Join us for discussion of this beautiful and riveting novel. We will use the Vintage Reprint Edition, 2012 (Classic Series), ISBN 978-0307949523.
