Man living a boring life marries as expected. But there is another woman on the scene who fascinates him. Will it work out?

The story takes place among rich Americans. Both that and the author's style are reminiscent of Henry James.

Al amable mundo de convenciones sociales estrictas en el que se mueve, aparentemente sin roces ni contrariedades, la alta sociedad de Nueva York de finales del siglo pasado, regresa de Europa la inquietante condesa Olenska. Independiente, osada, «diferente», Ellen involucrará muy pronto en su misterio a su joven primo Newland Archer y perturbará sin poder evitarlo el encanto de una vida social que ignora de manera voluntaria su inminente fin.

I can't remember when I last enjoyed a novel as much as I did this one. Beautiful setting, intricate plot, admirable prose ... I could go on and on. Yet, despite its opulence and beauty, it is a gilded scene because underneath the so-called reputable veneer, the biting, satirical portrayal of 1870s New York City exists. I also have never read a novel full of such unrequited love and longing. Not even Anna or Madam Bovary and their ill-fated romances come close to this one. To also witness characters so shaped by their society is fascinating yet frustrating. How many times I wanted to lock Newton Archer and Ellen in a room and just say, "Go at it, folks, get your thang on!" SPOILER ALERT: But ... having Newton walk away at the end, knowing Ellen's upstairs, knowing he could now have her, well, the heart just soars and weeps at the same time. ( )

A few days ago I finished The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and though I liked it I didn't love it. It was a well written book with a nice story. I didn't understand the really high rating. I didn't think it was psychologically deep. The Age of Innocence went deep. It was about the role of women in society. It was about how much of yourself do you lose if you try and fit it. I gave both books the same rating because even though Innocence went deep it liked itself too much. ( )

De grande e aveludado anacronismo, The Age of Innocence é um conto orquestrado de anseio romântico. Um romance de época, polido e elegante , embora incompleto, sobre a ¨inocente¨ esposa de um rico novaiorquino apaixonado por outra mulher que, jamais passando do flerte, o envolve em camadas de repressão vitoriana e prende-o entre as emoções do amor-paixão e a ética social burguesa.

A larger life and more tolerant views: That’s the greatest promise the novel holds out to us, and it’s as necessary now as it was when Edith Wharton put it into words.

And he felt himself oppressed by this creation of factitious purity, so cunningly manufactured by a conspiracy of mothers and aunts and grandmothers and long-dead ancestresses, because it was supposed to be what he wanted, what he had a right to, in order that he might exercise his lordly pleasure in smashing it like an image made of snow.
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", except the behavior of those who gave rise to them.
When he thought of Ellen Olenska it was abstractly, serenely, as one might think of some imaginary beloved in a book or a picture: she had become the composite vision of all that he had missed.
That terrifying product of the social system he belonged to and believed in, the young girl who knew nothing and expected everything, looked back at him like a stranger through May Welland's familiar features; and once more it was borne in on him that marriage was not the safe anchorage he had been taught to think, but a voyage on uncharted seas.
"No," she acquiesced; and her tone was so faint and desolate that he felt a sudden remorse for his own hard thoughts. "The individual, in such cases, is nearly always sacrificed to what is supposed to be the collective interest: people cling to any convention that keeps the family together--protects the children, if there are any," he rambled on, pouring out all the stock phrases that rose to his lips in his intense desire to cover over the ugly reality which her silence seemed to have laid bare.
