Books By Author Janet Beer
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.
Cambridge Companion to Kate Chopin, Paperback (September 2008)
A collection of essays for students covering Chopin's fiction, context, influences, and the American and transatlantic aspects of her work.
House of Mirth, Paperback (September 2006)
Edith Wharton's "The House of Mirth" (1905) is a satirical, and also an analysis of a young, single woman trying to find her place in a materialistic and unforgiving society. Part of the "Routledge Guides to Literature" series, this volume is a guide to the novel, and also a way through the critical material that surrounds Wharton's text.
