The Custom of the Country - Jane Stanton Hitchcock

Jane Stanton Hitchcock:
The Custom of the Country - edizione con copertina flessibile

ISBN: 9781557832870

Paperback, [PU: Hal Leonard Corporation], Edith Wharton's satiric anatomy of American society in the first decade of the twentieth century appeared in 1913; it both appalled and fascinated its first reviewers, and established her as a major novelist. The Saturday Review wrote that she had 'assembled as many detestable people as it is possible to pack between the covers of a six-hundred page novel', but concluded that the book was 'brilliantly written', and 'should be read as a parable'. It follows the career of Undine Spragg, recently arrived in New York from the Midwest and determined to conquer high society. Glamorous, selfish, mercenary, and manipulative, her principal assets are her striking beauty, her tenacity, and her father's money. With her sights set on an advantageous marriage, Undine pursues her schemes in a world of shifting values, where triumph is swiftly followed by disillusion. Wharton was re-creating an environment she knew intimately, and Undine's education for social success is chronicled in meticulous detail. The novel superbly captures the world of post-Civil War America, as ruthless in its social ambitions as in its business and politics., Theatre Studies, Plays, Playscripts

The Custom of the Country: Based on Edith Wharton's 1913 Novel - nuovo libro

ISBN: 9781557832870

ID: 978155783287

(Applause Books). This brilliantly crafted stage version of Wharton''s sprawling novel dissecting the New York social scene focuses on the beautiful, but predatory, Undine Spragg and the men in her life. Representing a world motivated by a heartless desire for power and status, Undine takes on lovers and husbands, discarding them when her whims of iron move her. Hitchcock has captured the satiric brilliance of the original work, while managing to transform a narrative of over 500 pages into a tightly-wrought stage piece. In the process, she provides a finely-drawn portrait of an unforgettable heroine against the background of a cruel social milieu dominated by rigid class distinctions and deeply-ingrained prejudices. "A luminous adaptation." Boston Globe Jane Stanton Hitchcock, Books, Entertainment, The Custom of the Country: Based on Edith Wharton's 1913 Novel Books>Entertainment, Applause Theatre & Cinema Books
