The Age of Innocence
The Age of Innocence0 0 5 Höfundur: Edith Wharton
A respected lawyer and scion of one of Manhattan’s most important families, Newland Archer knows what people expect of him and is eager to comply. The first step on the path to happiness is to wed May Welland, a beautiful young woman of fine social standing. But the arrival of the worldly and exotic Countess Olenska, May’s cousin, changes everything. Ellen Olenska’s scandalous intention to divorce her husband, a Polish nobleman, is so far outside the realm of Newland’s experience that he cannot help but be fascinated by her, and by the independence she represents. As he draws closer to the irresistible countess, he risks breaking May’s heart and destroying his life of privilege forever.
Winner of the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction—marking the very first time a woman was so honored—and the basis for several film and stage adaptations, including the 1993 Academy Award–winning motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese, The Age of Innocence is one of the best-loved American novels of the twentieth century.
