Overview

This New Riverside Edition, edited by Denise D. Knight (State University of New York -- Cortland) pairs two of Edith Wharton's most famous works, Ethan Frome and Summer. Wharton herself connected these novellas, both of which address the consequences of forbidden sexual passion and the tragedy of thwarted dreams. While Wharton continues to be one of the most frequently taught American writers, this is the first edition to place not only these two important texts in one volume but to include writings about the Berkshires and New England culture, as well as critical materials that illuminate both works, their connections, and Wharton's advanced ideas about their controversial subjects.
