An insightful look at representations of women’s bodies and female authority. This work explores Edith Wharton's career-long concern with a 19th-century visual culture that limited female artistic agency and expression. Wharton repeatedly invoked the visual arts--especially painting—as a medium for revealing the ways that women's bodies have been represented (as passive, sexualized, infantalized, sickly, dead). Well-versed in the Italian masters, Wharton made special use of the art of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, particularly its penchant for producing not portraits of individual women but instead icons onto whose bodies male desire is superimposed. Emily Orlando contends that while Wharton's early work presents women enshrined by men through art, the middle and later fiction shifts the seat of power to women. From Lily Bart in The House of Mirth to Undine Spragg in The Custom of the Country and Ellen Olenska in The Age of Innocence, women evolve from victims to vital agents, securing for themselves a more empowering and satisfying relationship to art and to their own identities. Orlando also studies the lesser-known short stories and novels, revealing Wharton’s re-workings of texts by Browning, Poe, Balzac, George Eliot, Sir Joshua Reynolds, and, most significantly, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Edith Wharton and the Visual Arts is the first extended study to examine the presence in Wharton's fiction of the Pre-Raphaelite poetry and painting of Rossetti and his muses, notably Elizabeth Siddall and Jane Morris. Wharton emerges as one of American literature's most gifted inter-textual realists, providing a vivid lens through which to view issues of power, resistance, and social change as they surface in American literature and culture.

"...Selden paused in surprise. In the afternoon rush of the Grand Central Station his eyes had been refreshed by the sight of Miss Lily Bart.It was a Monday in early September, and he was returning to his work from a hurried dip into the country; but what was Miss Bart doing in town at that season? If she had appeared to be catching a train, he might have inferred that he had come on her in the act of transition between one and another of the country-houses which disputed her presence after the close of the Newport season; but her desultory air perplexed him. She stood apart from the crowd, letting it drift by her to the platform or the street, and wearing an air of irresolution which might, as he surmised, be the mask of a very definite purpose. It struck him at once that she was waiting for some one, but he hardly knew why the idea arrested him. ..."

Challenging monolithic images of the New Woman as white, well-educated, and politically progressive, this study focuses on important regional, ethnic, and sociopolitical differences in the use of the New Woman trope at the turn of the twentieth century. Using Charles Dana Gibson's "Gibson Girls" as a point of departure, Martha H. Patterson explores how writers such as Pauline Hopkins, Margaret Murray Washington, Sui Sin Far, Mary Johnston, Edith Wharton, Ellen Glasgow, and Willa Cather challenged and redeployed the New Woman image in light of other "new" conceptions: the "New Negro Woman," the "New Ethics," the "New South," and the "New China." As she appears in these writers' works, the New Woman both promises and threatens to effect sociopolitical change as a consumer, an instigator of evolutionary and economic development, and, for writers of color, an icon of successful assimilation into dominant Anglo-American culture. Examining a diverse array of cultural products, Patterson shows how the seemingly celebratory term of the New Woman becomes a trope not only of progressive reform, consumer power, transgressive femininity, modern energy, and modern cure, but also of racial and ethnic taxonomies, social Darwinist struggle, imperialist ambition, assimilationist pressures, and modern decay.

This is an annotated and illustrated version of the book1.contains an updated biography of the author at the end of the book for a better understanding of the text.2.It also contains new and unique illustrations to give a better documentation and realism to the bookI had the story, bit by bit, from various people, and, as generallyhappens in such cases, each time it was a different story.If you know Starkfield, Massachusetts, you know the post-office. If youknow the post-office you must have seen Ethan Frome drive up to it, dropthe reins on his hollow-backed bay and drag himself across the brickpavement to the white colonnade; and you must have asked who he was.It was there that, several years ago, I saw him for the first time; andthe sight pulled me up sharp. Even then he was the most striking figurein Starkfield, though he was but the ruin of a man. It was not so muchhis great height that marked him, for the "natives" were easily singledout by their lank longitude from the stockier foreign breed: it was thecareless powerful look he had, in spite of a lameness checking each steplike the jerk of a chain. There was something bleak and unapproachablein his face, and he was so stiffened and grizzled that I took him for anold man and was surprised to hear that he was not more than fifty-two.I had this from Harmon Gow, who had driven the stage from Bettsbridgeto Starkfield in pre-trolley days and knew the chronicle of all thefamilies on his line."He's looked that way ever since he had his smash-up; and that'stwenty-four years ago come next February," Harmon threw out betweenreminiscent pauses.The "smash-up" it was--I gathered from the same informant--which, besidesdrawing the red gash across Ethan Frome's forehead, had so shortened andwarped his right side that it cost him a visible effort to take the fewsteps from his buggy to the post-office window. He used to drive infrom his farm every day at about noon, and as that was my own hour forfetching my mail I often passed him in the porch or stood beside himwhile we waited on the motions of the distributing hand behind thegrating. I noticed that, though he came so punctually, he seldomreceived anything but a copy of the Bettsbridge Eagle, which he putwithout a glance into his sagging pocket. At intervals, however, thepost-master would hand him an envelope addressed to Mrs. Zenobia--or Mrs.Zeena--Frome, and usually bearing conspicuously in the upper left-handcorner the address of some manufacturer of patent medicine and the nameof his specific. These documents my neighbour would also pocket withouta glance, as if too much used to them to wonder at their number andvariety, and would then turn away with a silent nod to the post-master.
