      A great collection of Wharton's shorter novels (plus one memoir). Everything in here is excellent; you get 1,000 pages of top-quality Edith Wharton. And the biographical Chronology at the end of this Library of America edition gives a remarkable picture of her life even in the notes' almost telegraphic form.

      I've only read three of the stories in this collection, so I'll just give my reviews on those:Madame de Treymes -- a novella about Americans in Paris; it deals with divorce and conventions in France. It is short enough to work together in one piece, unlike the earlier novels. Apart from The Age of Innocence, I think Wharton is best in shorter forms.Ethan Frome - I first read this one forty years ago in High School, but didn't remember much of it. It is very different from anything else I have re [...]

      I got the compilation specifically to read Ethan Frome and then also read Madame de Treymes. I have not read the other selections in the compilation. I am consistently in awe of Wharton's mastery of characterization. Her books always leave me feeling a bit uncomfortable in large part because I seemingly understand and care for the characters so much. I like her work, very much but am not passionate about it. Definitely would recommend but I am personally not likely to re-read her works. I would [...]

      I just completed reading Edith Wharton's novella, "Ethan Frome" in a two week group read and discussion in the "Readers Review" group on . Personally, this is not one of my favorite Wharton works. It is important though, and it makes you think about the choices that we make in our lives and the potential consequences associated with them. This is a grim and wintry story, and one that at times can be extraordinarily painful to read; which is probably precisely what Edith Wharton intended when she [...]

      I enjoyed her autobiographical essays at the end of this edition, Summer, Madame De Treymes, and Ethan Frome. Each work comes from a different period of time in her life, so readers can see how her style changed and improved. The stories are insights into the past, especially Summer. I was amazed at the way she wrote a teenage girl - all the arrogance and innocence. Definitely not what I would describe as a romantic, life hits Edith's characters hard and often, but not outlandishly. I hope to re [...]

      I've recently fallen into a Wharton phase, inspired in part by an upcoming paper I'll be delivering. As background I'm reading through a lot of Wharton, and enjoying it immensely. "Madame de Treymes" is delightful; the layered ironies of an American author writing about Americans at the hands of Parisian society (or is it the other way around?) is delightful, as is the prose and the tale. One could learn international d├ętente from this work.

      so i finished the first novella, madame de treymes. not bad but maybe a bit over my head. i'll definitely need to invest in the cliffs notes for this book but wharton is worth it.

      A decent book physically speaking, but as far as the writing itself goes, just not my cup of tea. I prefer Atherton when it comes to these sorts of subjects.
