A discussion of Edith Wharton's novel of manners, which shows how The Age of Innocence satirically and tragically comments on the restrictive social mores and the position of women in 19th-century American society. Linda Wagner-Martin traces the book's critical reception, comments on its importance, and provides extended analyses of the novel's major characters.
