This vintage book contains a fantastic collection of verse written by Edith Wharton. Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937) was an American novelist, designer, and writer of short stories. She married her uniquely insightful experience of America's aristocracy with a natural wit, in order to construct humorous novels and short stories that boast uncanny understanding on a social and psychological level. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature three times, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1921 for her novel "e;The Age of Innocence"e;. Contents include: "e;Artemis to Actaeon"e;, "e;Life"e;, "e;Vesalius in Zante"e;, "e;Margaret of Cortona"e;, "e;A Torchbearer"e;, "e;The Mortal Lease"e;, "e;Experience"e;, "e;Grief"e;, "e;Chartres"e;, "e;Two Backgrounds"e;, "e;The Tomb of Ilaria Giunigi"e;, "e;The One Grief"e;, "e;The Eumenides"e;, "e;Orpheus"e;, "e;An Autumn Over Tyringham"e;, etcetera.
