Set in the 1870s, the same period as Wharton's The Age of Innocence, The Buccaneers is about five wealthy American girls denied entry into New York Society because their parents' money is too new. At the suggestion of their clever governess, the girls sail to London, where they marry lords, earls, and dukes who find their beauty charming--and their wealth extremely useful. After Wharton's death in 1937, The Christian Science Monitor said, "If it could have been completed, The Buccaneers would doubtless stand among the richest and most sophisticated of Wharton's novels." Now, with wit and imagination, Marion Mainwaring has finished the story, taking her cue from Wharton's own synopsis. It is a novel any Wharton fan will celebrate and any romantic reader will love. This is the richly engaging story of Nan St. George and guy Thwarte, an American heiress and an English aristocrat, whose love breaks the rules of both their societies.… (més)

Each time I read this novel I like it more than I did before.

Laura Testvalley is my favorite character; I just wish we could learn more about her and her life, as I think she is more interesting than any of her charges, including Nan. We're talking about Dante Rossetti's first cousin here........why does she not have fascinating stories about him? Because they would be inappropriate for the young lady characters who are the focus of this book? Well, yes, but as a huge fan of almost everything inappropriate I would have liked that better. ( )

An interesting look at male/female relations in US and England in late 19th century and the machinations of various ends of the marriage market. SInce Wharton did not live to complete it, it is not surprising that it has an unfinished feel to it, despite additions by Mainwaring. ( )

Although unfinished at the time of the author's death, this novel has a way more satisfying ending than the previous Wharton I have read (The Age of Innocence). It was completed using notes Edith Wharton left behind. The protaganist in The Buccaneers has the courage to follow her heart despite knowing that society will ever after look down upon her. I find that sort of ending much more satisfying! ( )

The rare case where a movie is better than the book. This book just drags on and on! ( )
  yukon92 | Feb 2, 2019 |
I read about 21% of this book in June and haven't picked it up again in the past 5 months, so it's time to mark it as DNF. I remember enjoying the TV dramatisation of The Buccaneers, but I'm just not interested in finishing the book.

When [the Duke of Tintagel] was a little boy his secret longing had been to be a clock-maker; or rather (since their fabrication might have been too delicate a business) a man who sold clocks and sat among them in his little shop, watching them, doctoring them, taking their temperature, feeling their pulse, listening to their chimes, oiling, setting, and regulating them. The then Lord Ushant had never avowed this longing to his parents; even in petticoats he had understood that a future duke can never hope to keep a clock-shop. But often, wandering through the great saloons and interminable galleries of Longlands and Tintagel, he had said to himself with a beating heart: "Some day I'll wind all those clocks myself, every Sunday morning, before breakfast."
His mind rapidly reviewed the plunder, pillage, sack, and rapine of his native land throughout the course of history. First, the Romans had come. Then the Angles, Jutes, and Saxons. Then the Danes terrorized England for three centuries. Norman countries took the country over in 1066. Five centuries later Turks raided the Thames and took prisoners to sell in the Libyan slave-market ... But never had there been any phenomenon to match this, this -- he recalled an article -- this "invasion of England by Amerian women and their chiefs of commissariat, the silent American men ..." "What a gang of buccaneers you are!" he breathed to his wife.

There are at least three versions of this novel: the unfinished novel as Wharton left it, and two versions with independent continuations: Mainwaring's (1993), and the BBC's (1995). All three would seem to be substantially different and warrant their own works.
