#ThisIsBerk ...shires. Or, if you wish to visit a home that was owned by Edith Wharton, a trip to the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts is in order.

The tagged book is one of her most well known works, a study in the class system in the US; she‘s a critic of it. I read this years ago and liked it. #SoaringScores

I love Edith Wharton! This novel is another incisive, gut wrenching look at “moneyed” New York and its stifling conventions. Newland Archer is engaged to the lovely May Welland, but when May‘s cousin Countess Ellen Olenska arrives in New York, scandal follows. https://cannonballread.com/2019/09/the-age-of-innocence-elcicco/

Tamra I love her too! 3mo

Ah, how stifling and pretentious, the elite society, where conventions, and conformity to the social codes are the rules. This tale about love, passion, and choices, tells of characters living their lives by the rules of society, and of not following their hearts. The writing beautifully captures the essence of the era and place. Wharton makes us love and get angry at the characters at the same time. 👇

erzascarletbookgasm (cont..) It‘s heartbreaking and offers a satirical look at 19th century New York privileged society. Really memorable. 👍 5mo

I was gonna rate it “so-so” up until the end!

All throughout the book I thought that Archer would eventually give in, and I‘m (pleasantly??? Not quite) surprised that he did not cave in even when he could 😵 I even felt guilty at the end for rooting for him and Ellen to end up together haha!

These kind of books are usually from a feminine POV, so that was refreshing too 😀

The most important thing to know when it comes to The Age Of Innocence is that you need to guard against being fooled by its subtlety. On its face, it‘s a slow-moving society story of upper-class New York City at the end of the 19th century, but its critique and commentary goes so much deeper than that! A good one for fans of Jane Austen's Emma. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/the-age-of-innocence-edith-wharton/

I did a Serial/audio combo because I wanted to finish it in June... written or spoke word, this book is fantastic.

Wharton‘s writing is perfection for me. Witty, smart, poignant, and she‘s able to convey so much emotion in so few words. This story is primarily a love story, but it‘s also a commentary on morals and values of the upper class in 1870s New York City. I loved and hated the characters, and that ending. 💔

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So much to think and talk about here! I imagine the narrator provoking different opinions but I saw him as a man who sees himself as Very Original and accidentally married someone he didn‘t love as useless C19 men often do. I feel Edith and I found him unintentionally hilarious a lot. Ellen and May were such different versions of trapped women surviving repressive societies as best they could. Great bookclub book - I could talk about it for hours

This is the playground at a nearby church. I was going to take one of the much better playground at the grade school but it was full of children and I was afraid they would think I was some creepy stalker. I did, however, go for a walk and reward myself with a Diet Ski from Casey‘s (a soda made locally that is the elixir of the gods). Didn‘t think I‘d like this book but so far I‘m enjoying it! #litsywalkersbingo. #litsywalkers.

Kaye Great job Missy. Good to see you back on the trail, walking with the rest of us Cowpokes. ( sorry, been reading too much McMurtry. Got cowboys on the brain). I‘ve never heard if the drink you mentioned. What‘s the flavoring ? 10mo
LibrarianRyan How local are we talking? I‘ve not heard of it and now I want one. And Casey‘s is just down the road. 10mo
Bklover @LibrarianRyan It‘s made in Breese about five miles from me. I think there are a couple places in Springfield you can get it. I‘ll check with my daughter. If not I‘ll bring some when I‘m up that way. 10mo
See All 11 Comments
Bklover @Kaye It‘s a citrus soda made with lemon and orange, as opposed to lemon and lime. A bit like Mountain Dew. It‘s a bit addictive. Made at Excel Bottling in Breese. It is pretty much THE drink around here. Even McDonald‘s here has it. 10mo
Bklover @kaye Oh, and which McMurtry are you reading? Lonesome Dove is probably my all time favorite book. 10mo
MaureenMc Mmmm, Ski... 😋 Whenever we were in Breese for scholar bowl in high school, we‘d hit Hardee‘s for a diet ski and a big cookie. 😄 10mo
Kaye Well it sounds good. I‘ve never seen it nor heard if it here. I read the first McMurtry. Dead Mans Walk. Not NEARLY as good as LD. 10mo
Bklover @MaureenMc Yay! Another Ski fan! Where are you from? 10mo
MaureenMc @Bklover I‘m in St. Louis now, but grew up in Columbia (IL). Btw, do you happen to know Steve Klosterman or Lori Kuper? 10mo
Bklover @MaureenMc Wow! Yes- I know them both! My daughter dated Lori‘s daughter Maddy for a long time so our families spent quite a bit of time together. I know Steve from Clinton County Showcase. How do you know Lori? 10mo

My first EW, & it's not fair to say words as mere as "i loved it" for someone who could spin a story so beautiful. Following statement sums up this tale of old New York code, it's conformation to society - "It was the old New York way, of taking life 'without effusion of blood'; the way of people who dreaded scandal more than disease, who placed decency above courage, and who considered that nothing was more ill-bred than 'scenes', ?

Tanisha_A except the behaviour of those who gave rise to them." 13mo

Took me awhile to get into this book on serial reader; the introduction to this Signet Classics copy by Regina Barreca really ignited me. My first Wharton. Visiting her home in Lennox MA this fall with my English teacher friend, so I have to read something she wrote, right?! Also a bookclub pick for September, paired with Jeffery Eugenides novel, The Marriage Plot.

My second work by Edith Wharton and I officially ❤️ her. I wholly recommend this classic about a man in love with his wife‘s married cousin, set in rigid, upper class 1870s New York society. This book is a classic for a reason and I can‘t wait to read the other novels by Wharton included in this beautiful #penguinclassicsdeluxe edition. #classic #litsyclassics

It‘s got Winona Ryder on so it‘s not all bad but don‘t like film tie-in covers and I‘ve seen loads of pretty covers for this. #worsecover #maylovesclassics #litsyclassics

Cathythoughts I think I‘ll start this one today ❤️ 2y
batsy I'm thinking of a film tie-in cover for this prompt, too 😁 2y
saresmoore Oh, gosh. This is a pretty terrible cover. 2y

Edith Wharton pops into my mind when I think of #badandboujee. I am not sure that she would have come to mind to any of the members of Migos. 😂 But of all her books I‘ve read, the forerunner in my mind is The Age of Innocence. It‘s also my favorite of hers. 😍😍

Mdargusch Such a great book. I‘m wondering if any members of Migos has heard of her? (edited) 2y
TrishB Good one 👍🏻 I‘ve never heard of Migos.... 2y
emilyhaldi I still need to read that!!💗 2y

BarbaraBB Great book. I am not sure either whether Migos were thinking of Wharton while writing the lyrics 😂😂 (edited) 2y
Kalalalatja Great pick! 2y
batsy Excellent! Wharton and Fitzgerald definitely fit the title of the song (if not the lyrics 😂) 2y
Cinfhen Yeah, not sure Migos is familiar with Wharton but you never know.... 2y

readordierachel I keep meaning to read Wharton. I even go so far as to check titles out from the library, but for some reason I never pick them up. Must remedy that! 2y

1. The view from my little patio.
2. Literary white dudes have feelings in Brooklyn.
3. Visit a city, see museums and shows, eat ridiculous amounts of good food.
4. Brownish.
5. Age of Innocence. I re-read it constantly.

I recently finished AGE OF INNOCENCE by Edith Wharton for the #ageofinnocence2018 readalong and all I can say, is why haven‘t I picked up Wharton before!? The writing is so rich and decadent; with cleverly constructed criticism of New York‘s upper class society, marriage and scandal. I found myself entirely engrossed in the story of love, obsession, and loyalty that plays out in this novel.

Tamra I am a big Wharton fan! 💜 2y
catebutler @Tamra She has been on my list for ages, so I‘m so pleased I finally picked her up. I can definitely see why she‘s a favorite of yours. 2y

raeintheworld Ellen Olenska is my spirit animal. 2y
catebutler @raeintheworld I love it! It really is surprising what a modern woman she was, especially having been written as an 1800‘s character. I always love reading about independent, passionate women. She definitely was a memorable character. 2y
Linsy How beautiful!!! 2y

I‘m sure it would have been better reading it without Serial Reader.

It‘s been moody rainy weather, so weekend plans have been rearranged. A lazy Saturday calls for waffles with lemon curd, raspberries and whipped cream and fragrant Earl Grey tea in new tea cups. I‘m also devouring my current read, Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. I might even do a bit of baking; a flourless chocolate cake has been calling my name. Plans for the evening include, homemade soup, and catching up on The Alienist miniseries.

ReadingSusan That sounds like a perfect day!! 2y
catebutler @ReadingSusan Thank you!! I hope you‘re having a great Saturday too! 2y
