The Letters of Edith Wharton. Edited By R.W.B. Lewis & Nancy Lewis.
by [Literary Letters] Wharton, Edith.

Publisher Information:
Scribners, New York: 1988.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. The editors of this volume have collected approximately 400 of her more than 4000 letters, ranging from a letter she wrote at age twelve to those written just before her death. Wharton (1874-1937) was not only a prolific novelist and short-story writer but a prolific correspondent, and this selection of close to 400 letters, many never-before published, shows her at her epistolary best. Divided into seven chronological sections, each with a useful introduction, the letters reveal a woman of alert mind, broad interests, numerous moods and appealing warmth of heart. She also was endowed with a singular capacity to evoke the life around her, ranging from the exoticism of North Africa to the horrors of the World War I front.
