Read full description of the books:



Cele patru nuvele care alcătuiesc acest volum, scrise de autoarea romanului distins cu Premiul Pulitzer Vârsta inocenței, au acțiunea plasată în New Yorkul anilor '40, '50, '60 și '70 ai secolului al XIX-lea, fiecare dintre ele abordând teme cum ar fi infidelitatea, ilegitimitatea, gelozia, sistemul de clasă, precum și starea femeii în societate. Fapt de zi înșelător descrie relația furtunoasă dintre un tată dominator și fiul său; în Fata bătrână, fiica nelegitimă a unei tinere femei este adoptată de cea mai bună prietenă a ei – cu rezultate devastatoare; Revelație prezintă reabilitarea morală a unui tânăr, care este „declanșată” de întâlnire întâmplătoare cu Walt Whitman; iar Ziua de Anul Nou este o poveste despre o femeie căsătorită suspectată de adulter. New Yorkul de altădată este Edith Wharton la superlativ.

„Există doar trei sau patru romancieri americani care pot fi considerați importanți – iar Edith Wharton este unul dintre ei.”

Gore Vidal

„Adevărul e că nici un romancier al vremii noastre […] nu a fost atât de neîndurător, atât de sarcastic, atât de aspru, cum a fost Edith Wharton când a atacat vulgaritatea și eșecurile societății noastre.”

Irving Howe

Read information about the author

Ebook New Yorkul de altădată read Online! Edith Newbold Jones was born into such wealth and privilege that her family inspired the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses." The youngest of three children, Edith spent her early years touring Europe with her parents and, upon the family's return to the United States, enjoyed a privileged childhood in New York and Newport, Rhode Island. Edith's creativity and talent soon became obvious: By the age of eighteen she had written a novella, (as well as witty reviews of it) and published poetry in the Atlantic Monthly.

After a failed engagement, Edith married a wealthy sportsman, Edward Wharton. Despite similar backgrounds and a shared taste for travel, the marriage was not a success. Many of Wharton's novels chronicle unhappy marriages, in which the demands of love and vocation often conflict with the expectations of society. Wharton's first major novel, The House of Mirth, published in 1905, enjoyed considerable literary success. Ethan Frome appeared six years later, solidifying Wharton's reputation as an important novelist. Often in the company of her close friend, Henry James, Wharton mingled with some of the most famous writers and artists of the day, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, André Gide, Sinclair Lewis, Jean Cocteau, and Jack London.

In 1913 Edith divorced Edward. She lived mostly in France for the remainder of her life. When World War I broke out, she organized hostels for refugees, worked as a fund-raiser, and wrote for American publications from battlefield frontlines. She was awarded the French Legion of Honor for her courage and distinguished work.

The Age of Innocence, a novel about New York in the 1870s, earned Wharton the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1921 -- the first time the award had been bestowed upon a woman. Wharton traveled throughout Europe to encourage young authors. She also continued to write, lying in her bed every morning, as she had always done, dropping each newly penned page on the floor to be collected and arranged when she was finished. Wharton suffered a stroke and died on August 11, 1937. She is buried in the American Cemetery in Versailles, France.
