House of Mirth by Janet Beer
Book DescriptionEdith Wharton's The House of Mirth (1905) is a sharp and satirical, but also sensitive and tragic analysis of a young, single woman trying to find her place in a materialistic and unforgiving society. The House of Mirth offers a fascinating insight into the culture of the time and, as suggested by the success of recent film adaptations, it is also an enduring tale of love, ambition and social pressures still relevant today. Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of The House of Mirth and seeking not only a guide to the novel, but a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds Wharton's text.

Edith Wharton: Sex, Satire and the Older Woman, Hardback (August 2011)
Wharton's late and critically-neglected novels are reclaimed as experimental in form and radical in content in this book, which also suggests that her portrayal of older female characters in her last six novels anticipates contemporary unease about the cultural marginalization of the older woman in Western society.

A collection of essays for students covering Chopin's fiction, context, influences, and the American and transatlantic aspects of her work.
Kate Chopin's 'The Awakening', Hardback (May 2004)
Damned upon publication for engaging with the taboo issues of female sexuality and infidelity, Kate Chopin's "The Awakening" (1899) is hailed as a key early feminist text and an important work of American literature. This book combines commentary with reprinted documents to provide an introduction to this widely debated novel.
