Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis is arranged in three chapters which explore Wharton’s representations of nature in three novels: The House of Mirth (1905), The Fruit of the Tree (1907), and The Custom of the County (1913). This thesis contends that Wharton’s novels reveal changes in the interplay between representations of nature and patterns of gender, privilege and commerce. In so doing, I reveal how idealizations of nature fulfill specific social functions.
