Set against the old New York of her youth, Wharton's novel tells the story of Newland Archer, a man engaged to society girl May Welland, but privately longing for a life of genuine passion with the spirited Countess Ellen Olenska. This Enriched Classics edition features biographical and historical background, critical perspectives, photos and illustrations.

These are more expensive than paperback alternatives but still reasonably priced, and the hardcover quality is worth the extra bucks if you can afford it. (c) Copyright 2010.
