Originally published in 1905, The House of Mirth was Wharton's first major novel and arguably her best. It recounts the downward course of the socially aspirant Lilly Bart who is seemingly superior in intellect and beauty than any of her peers and yet is critically constrained financially. Her only sensible recourse, marriage into money, is denied her while the alternative, marriage for love and companionship, she rejects to her cost. On the surface, the novel is an examination of mannerisms in contemporary American society. Lilly Bart is the finest example of all that is required within her social set and while she has the funds - or can secure the funds - necessary to maintain her standing, her peers accept her presence. Yet when she falls financially, not even her looks and abilities are sufficient to keep her from poverty.
