Synopsis

Between 1891 and 1937 Edith Wharton published some eighty-six short stories, most of them in American magazines. In 1968, all of these stories were published by Scribner's in a two-volume set, "The Collected Short Stories of Edith Wharton", edited and with an introduction by R.W.B. Lewis. The present work provides a history of the stories' appearance in the magazines and their subsequent publication in volume form. This book undertakes a study of each of Wharton's stories in homogeneous subject categories (ghost tales, stories of social class, stories about the arts, academic stories, and historical tales). These categories provide the opportunity of seeing the stories' development within the various generic types. The work will appeal to students of Edith Wharton's writings and of the American short story in general.
