This product is currently unavailable.
"Professor Orlando is very skillful in showing how Wharton integrates the works of other artists (especially painters and poets) in creating characters and scenes in her own work. . . . She is the first to study Wharton's work in the context of the history of museums and the role of women as curators and art historians.. . . Another strength of the book is the attention given to neglected stories, such as “The Potboiler,” “The Rembrandt,” and “The Temperate Zone,” which are shown to be relevant to the major novels in ways that had not been demonstrated before."—Elsa Nettels, author of “Language and Gender in American Fiction: Howells, James, Wharton, and Cather”
