Description

Edith Wharton, known primarily for her novels of American high society, was also a war writer. She was one of the first woman writers to be allowed to visit the war zones in France in 1915 and report back on what she saw. This resulting collection of six essays - five of which were originally published in American magazines - presents a fascinating and unique perspective on wartime France by one of America's great novelists. Written with Wharton's distinctive literary skills to advocate American intervention in the war, this little-known war text demonstrates that she was a complex and accomplished propagandist. However, these eyewitness accounts also demonstrate a troubling awareness of the human cost of war. Incorporating a wealth of previously unpublished archival material and images, this critical edition aims to bring this neglected text into the field of Wharton studies, allowing critics and enthusiasts to reevaluate her contribution as a war writer and to assess the significance of this period for her literary development.
