This book represents the first comprehensive collection of contemporary reviews of the writing of Edith Wharton from the 1890s until her death in 1937. Many of the reviews are reprinted from hard-to-locate contemporary newspapers and periodicals. In addition, lists of other reviews not presented here are provided. These materials document the response of the reviewers to specific titles and indicate the development of Wharton's reputation as a novelist, short story writer, travel writer, and autobiographer.
