The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. In a society where people “dreaded scandal more than disease,” passion was a force of ruin. Winner of the 1921 Pulitzer Prize, Edith Wharton’s The Age of Innocence is set amidst the pre-World War I “Golden Age” of upper-class society in New York, and is framed by society’s strict moral code. When soon-to-be-wed Newland Archer finds himself enraptured by his bride-to-be’s code-flouting cousin, he faces a turbulent battle between passion and social value.
