The role of irony in The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton is a major theme in Wharton’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel.Wharton uses Newland Archer as a major role of irony in her novel, The Age of Innocence.“By the time Wharton wrote this book, she had survived an unhappy 25 year marriage” (Cliffnotes).2 She ignored her husband’s affair and business just like May Welland in The Age of Innocence.Mr. Wharton also has many affairs during his marriage with Edith Wharton.“What is most striking in the two volumes, other than the similarity of tone discernible in all the tales, is Edith Wharton’s preoccupation with the irony of things, especially in the connection with man’s failures” (Plante 421).3 “Wharton shares significantly with Archer is n...

“Facebook has not yet been able to find an ad model to generate revenues commensurate with its valuation,” notes Saikat Chaudhuri, a management professor at Wharton.If we take a knowledge-intensive company into consideration, O’Donnell says “If people are managed and developed well, then it is a sign of an organization that has a level of confidence in its ability to manage its people.” She also explains that the art of developing a strategy and executing a strategy is very complex and fraught and it is the human capital analysis of a business that really gets to the heart of an organization’s ability to execute on its strategy.But according to Wharton faculty and other observers, the problem is fairly clear: No one knows how to value th...

Clearly, however, Wharton was the more accomplished of the two when it came to writing shorter works – James’ works that offer social commentaries successfully are his novels such as The Turn of the Screw and The Portrait of a Lady.A final area of relevance to the period surrounding Edith Wharton is that it was a literary moment dominated by male figures.This 1998 volume includes the great masters of the New York authorial world, and it is notable that Edith Wharton was included.An article titled Critical Reception and Cultural Capital: Edith Wharton as a Short Story Writer, authored by Gary Totten begins with a brief comment on the undervaluing of Wharton by critics and proceeds to write about the crime this is.A study would be remiss i...

Yet, now there is “no reason for his continuing in the same routine” (Wharton, 1918:289) and he has a chance of freedom, he is still “held fast by habit” (Wharton 1918:290) and “saw into what a deep rut he had sunk.” (Wharton, 1918:290) Indeed Newland has not changed at all; he is still torn between the feeling that he should engage in “new things”.The author further highlights Newland’s cowardice and apathy by stating that he “instinctively felt that in this respect it would be troublesomeâ€¦to stick out for himself.” (Wharton 1918:7) Newland’s unwillingness not to conform is further extrapolated when he pays lip service to democratic principles, but once married, reassumes his earlier conventional, patronising attitude to May’s “innoce...

Wharton establishes patterns of imagery by using figurative language — language meant to be taken figuratively as well as literally.Because Wharton refrains from using unnecessary, superfluous modifiers, her descriptions seem to be almost elliptical or incomplete.Throughout the novel, Wharton builds up patterns of imagery, patterns of behavior, and specially charged words; all of which serve a definite stylistic and structural purpose.For example, when Mattie and Ethan spend the evening together, Wharton uses the imagery of warmth and cold to complement characterization.The figurative language used by Wharton includes metaphors and similes.

Throughout the novel, Wharton must interpret these actions for her readers, for often the spoken words of her characters do not contain as much meaning as (and in some cases relate the opposite meaning of) the gesture.Here and throughout the novel, Wharton employs certain imagery by which to portray Old New York society.On a more symbolic level, Wharton ironically compares the traditional behaviors and codes of cultured Old New York with those of primitive or ancient cultures.Wharton makes her depiction of the van der Luydens ironic by several different means.Secondly, Wharton describes them in anthropological terms.
