Wharton Society Page-- a new page sponsored by a group of
scholars dedicated to studying Wharton. The page has links to
conference information, calls for papers, membership info and
all of Wharton's works online. A great resource.
You can also subscribe to the Wharton Listserv, sponsored by
the society above. To subscribe, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leave the subject line blank, and write subscribe wharton-l in
the body of the message. Note that the final letter of "wharton-l"
is a lower-case L, not a 1.
- Fred Adams' Wharton page-- has links to a huge number of
Wharton online e-texts.
in American Literature page. Includes an extensive bibliography.
Shidler's Wharton page A good collection of information about
- The Mount Edith
Wharton's home in Lenox, Mass. Also includes a nice, short biography with
some good photos.
- Edith Wharton and her Politics a webpage created by Jessica

Archer an article discussing this character from the Age
of Innocence, by Dr. Stephen Montgomery.
- E-text of Edith
Wharton's poetry, from various journals where they were originally
published, housed at Virginia.
- It's a movie: Scorcese's version of The
Age of Innocence. This is a really great movie version,
but please note that watching the movie never substitutes for
reading the book. Hollywood adds things (especially sexual content)
and deletes things-- so if you're studying the novel for a course,
you need to read it first, then see the movie for fun!
- IMD's listing for Other
movie versions of The Age of Innocence (1924)
- IMD's list
for other movies based on Wharton novels includes The
Buccaneers and Ethan Fromme, among others. You'll
have to scroll down the page a bit, since it gives you all Whartons--
look for "writers."
Last Update: May 2003
Note: Links frequently move, or disappear entirely. No links
collection is ever easy to update. If one of the above links doesn't
work, try another. If you still can't find what you need, try
a good search engine-- I like the Mamma Search Engine for new
pages, and Google.com but some links will be "so-so".
Then, remember to try the library! Not everything is available
online. You sometimes need to pick up a real book.
