Description
A tale of forbidden sexual passion and thwarted dreams played out against the lush, summer backdrop of the Massachusetts Berkshires Edith Wharton called Summer her 'hot Ethan'. In their rural settings and their poor, uneducated protagonists, Summer (1916) and Ethan Frome represent a sharp departure from Wharton's familiar depictions of the urban upper class. Charity Royall lives unhappily with her hard-drinking adoptive father in an isolated village, until a visiting architect awakens her sexual passion and the hope for escape. Exploring Charity's relation to her father and her lover, Wharton delves into dark cultural territory- repressed sexuality, small-town prejudice, and, in subtle hints, incest.

display_description This classic work by American author Edith Wharton (1862-1937) is one of the first novels in America to deal with a woman's sexual awakening. Wharton is best known for her stories set in the early 20th century about upper-class Americans and Europeans. First published in 1917, Summer tells the tale of a young New England woman named Charity Royall who falls in love with an architect from the city. Lucious Harney is Charity's first experience with romantic--and physical--love; but Lucious ultimately cannot choose her. This tale of love--and despair--will enthrall the audiences of today just as it has over the past century.
