The New Edith Wharton Studies uncovers new evidence and presents new ideas that invite us to reconsider our understanding of one of America’s most highly acclaimed, versatile, and prolific writers. The volume addresses themes that have previously been missed or underdeveloped and examines areas where previous scholarship does not take account of key, contemporary issues:Wharton andecocriticism, Wharton and queer studies,Wharton and animal studies,Wharton and whiteness, and Wharton and contemporary psychology. Essays explore Wharton’s treatment of the poor in her emerging career, the ways in which French thinkers helped her envision community, the importance of Greece to Wharton, her transnationalism, the ongoing revelations of the author’s archives, and new perspectives on her agency in the literary marketplace. It addresses key themes and examines contemporary issues, while reassessing Edith Wharton’s life and career.
