s too late her life is finished For a time she considers going back to her husband She shocks people by wearing the wrong things hanging out with the wrong people or by engaging men in frank conversation In elite New York society at that time a woman could not walk away from conversation with a man to engage in conversation with another man she had to wait for him to come to her The Countess shocks people by referring occasionally to my husband when everyone expects her never to mention him But she is somewhat protected by her family connections she is Newland s wife s cousin

idea a weakness a cruelty or an emotion May is That terrifying product of the social system he belonged to and believed in the young girl who knew nothing and expected everything Newland thinks of himself as enlightened Among men he says Women should be free as free as we are knowing full well that Nice women however wronged would never claim the kind of freedom he meant and generous minded men like himself were therefore in the heat of the argument the chivalrously ready to concede it to them But of May he thinks There was no use trying to emancipate a wife who had not theimmest notion that she was not free After Newland and the Countess fall in love they enter into a kind of limbo Her choice would be stay near him as long as he Gem is Mine but Heart is Your did not ask her to come

Wharton writes with cutting wit about the hypocritical and ludicrous customs of blue blood society and cunningly plots events to work against Newland the archer whose target is a new land in which he and Ellen can be together The pity is that ultimately May proves to be the cunning huntress who cleverly stalks and traps her uarry in the labyrinth of societyCross posted at This Insignificant Cinder We can t behave like people in novels though can we A few years ago I read The Age of Innocence and thought it was okay It has something of an Austen esue feel criticisms of middleupper middle class society paired with a subtle and clever humour and a love story here eliciously scandalous But it s taken me a few years to come back to this novel and appreciate the magic Wharton has brought to the tableThis little book is so clever Everything about it from the amn title to nearly every piece of ialogue is perfectly placed and often ironic Things that Readers Guide to African Literature didn t hit me fully the first time around became so much important in this reread Wharton knows 1870s New York City like the back of her hand she knows its habits its traditions and its expectations of people She creates a rich twinkly picture of parties and social standards that is bothelightful and ultimately ridiculous then she throws a spanner in the worksNever has a love triangle been so welcomed by me This isn t the modern affair we re used to where a girl must choose between hot guy 1 and hot guy 2 Nope in this story Newland Archer is torn between the stability comfort and Distributed Operating Systems Algorithms duty he can be offered by the socially favoured match with May Welland and his passionate all consuming love for the unconventional rebellious and ostracized Ellen Olenska Each time you happen to me all over again It s as important as it is beautifully written Wharton casts an eye over this society bothisdainful and affectionate Incorporating issues of female emancipation into the story never has the idea of a woman enslaved by marriage and convention seemed so unattractive from a male perspective Newland Archer is full of modernity and the call of new ideas but finds that any freedom he poses to May she would receive only with the intention of pleasing him Though it should be said I believe May is far than she seemsIt s hard to read the ending of this book without feeling emotional but the exact emotion may iffer with your interpretation Ambiguity reigns supreme as this novel finds its close and even the coldest of unromantics will surely

is trying to get at something very interesting in The Age of Innocence Here is the young man contemplating his future marriage What could he and she really know of each other since it was hisuty as a Accuracy and Stability of Numerical Algorithms decent fellow to conceal his past from her and hers as a marriageable girl to have no past to conceal He reviewed his friends marriages the supposedly happy ones and saw none that answered even remotely to the passionate and tender comradeship which he pictured as his permanent relation with May Welland He perceived that such a picture presupposed on her part the experience the versatility the freedom of judgement which she had been carefully trained not to possess and with a shiver of foreboding he saw his marriage becoming what most of the other marriages about him were aull association of material and social interests held together by ignorance on the one side and hypocrisy on the otherMuch later the young man sadly muses thus There

how very rude this begs the uestion what liberty exactlyid this proto feminist man suppose could be accessed by upperclass females in the 1870s in New York Edith Wharton s clear intelligence makes me

Ted by a set of arbitrary signs They that were above that Innocence were cruelly placed upon a circumstance in which they have to feign Innocence as well as the only way to sustain their love for each other I can t love you unless I give you up This has led me to believe that such innocence can only be a result of circumstances beyond their powers That altogether this Innocence is merely through the progression of unstoppable forces not necessarily known to the person it affects Such is also the case with the New York Society These people Alchemy Martial Supreme did not choose to succumb to this veiled innocence it was mercilessly hurled at them They were raised in these circumstances in a society where conformity is the norm and to uestion this conformity would be self abdication Thus these people willie by this code This Age of Innocence reflects a view in which Newland Archer is also an innocent victim He thinks his wife too much of an innocent being that he is surprised in the end and utterly moved when he finds out that she is not so innocent at all And the lifting of this veil seemed a wake up call to him at the very end when he was about to meet the Countess Olenska with his son that he realizes that he has lost this innocence She had become the symbol of everything that could have been all his hopes and Nicholas Flamels First Codex dreams She was the unreachable star In the end he was afraid that all that sustained his love was that invisible shackle that sense of longing that feigned innocence And that the innocence was all that kept him to Ellen and without it he cannot bear to face her And you ll sit beside me and we ll look not at visions but at realitiesIon t know what you mean by realities The only reality to me is thisThe Alien dream has become a reality and the reality aream It s real to me here than if I went up he suddenly heard himself say and the fear lest that last shadow of reality should lose its edge kept him rooted to his seat as the minutes succeeded each other Myself and the Pulitzer prize have previously not always seen eye to eye but Finally I have read one worthy of giving top marks to This golden oldie captures the wholesome atmosphere of American life and the highest standard of American manners and manhood from a bygone era where modern ideas are resisted and tradition overcomes compassion The inhabitants of this hothouse of New York society is built on wealth life is lavished easy and comfortably cushioned but this world may just as well have been covered in a blanket of cobwebs as the lives are so sedate and uneventfully ull espite their opulent surroundings they appear colourless and motionless It is ultimately a tragic tale that Wharton weaves and yes as with a lot of classic fiction based around love it s told with air of melancholy because this love is one that oesn t really get off the ground For Newland Archer the leading male character there is an imagining of an alternative existence to the one that convention has pressed upon him he has built within himself a kind of sanctuary for his secret thoughts and longings Within these walls are his bride to be May Welland and Countess Olenska who would change his whole worldThe real loneliness is living among all these kind people who only ask one to pretendArcher is a perfect product of Old New York a member of one of the most prominent historic families he lives in the obligatory sumptuous brownstone on Fifth Avenue with his mild mannered mother and spinster sister and languidly pursues the law as most gentlemen of his age and inherited wealth o He is engaged to the young beautiful and eually impeccably bred May Welland who is sweet sweet natured but naive After twelve years away returns the Countess Ellen Olenska May s cousin who through no fault of her own upsets the balance of Newland s life She is beautiful vivacious and intelligent whose long period of living in liberal European surroundings has made her innocent of the nonsensical unspoken rules of the society she has reentered and incapable of maintaining the shallow facade of her female relatives Newland feels a life of uiet misery lies ahead and À

imagination and the heart against experience Newland and Ellen share a secret love that enables each of them to be the best people they can be fulfilled intellectually emotionally and socially and the fact they can never be together in harmony is just as unbearable for the reader as it is for the characters and this is where Wharton excels with people you truly believe in For May she is neither clever nor truthful and only rarely shows a spirit that reveals aepth of feeling in the face of connvention and social expectations In telling the story of how Archer and Olenska against all the strictures and taboos of their society fall in love Wharton seems to be siding with the individual in this universal tug of war But I Alien Generals Chosen Brion Brides don t think it s ever that simple Certainly New York s upper society in the 1870s was one of grandeur but it isescribed in Archer s thoughts and Wharton s observations as a prison of the mind one where the cells are sprinkled with gold Academic Motherhood: How Faculty Manage Work and Family dustThe finale of many years later moved me immensely I thought of all that went before a story that in terms of characterisation was searing on every page with the intensity of thisoomed love affair A stunning novel impeccably told And I think it s unfair to simply label this as old fashioned chick lit because it s about so much than what appears on the surface Her tone is sardonic and to some extent cynical of the social world into which the reader enters and she portrays this society its conventions and traditions through the unforgettable vivid characters whose behaviour and thinking were moulded in time Appearances can be eceiving as this superb classic novel revealsNewland Archer has the perfect life rich young and
