Review of The Age of Innocence (Signet Classics)

Do you like love, scandal and society stories? Then you may be interested in reading The Age of Innocence (The age of innocence), a novel by the American writer Edith Wharton, published in 1920 and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1921.

This novel transports you to New York at the end of the 19th century, where high society is governed by strict rules of etiquette, morals, and appearance. There you will meet Newland Archer, a wealthy and respectable young lawyer, who is engaged to May Welland, a beautiful and virtuous debutante from a prominent family. Everything seems perfect for Newland, until Mays cousin, Countess Ellen Olenska, arrives in town.

Ellen is a scandalous and rebellious woman, who has returned to America after separating from her husband, an unfaithful and abusive Polish count. Ellen defies social convention with her daring clothing, carefree manner, and rumors of adultery. Despite the fact that Ellens family, headed by the powerful Mrs. Manson Mingott, has decided to reintroduce her to good society, Newland and May feel that it is necessary to become friends with her.

What will happen between Newland and Ellen? Will they be able to resist the social pressure and follow their hearts? Or will they have to settle for an empty and passionless life? If you want to find out, dont miss The Age of Innocence, a novel that masterfully portrays the world of the 19th century New York aristocracy and the social tragedy of its plot.
