Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence: New Centenary Essays (Bloomsbury, 2019) is the most recent volume focused on Wharton's Pulitzer Prize–winning novel. Edited by Arielle Zibrak, it brings new critical approaches to Wharton's work and draws connections between the novel's gaze back at the late nineteenth century and our own. Wharton scholars were invited to respond to each of the collection's essays and the authors of the essays, in turn, wrote back to their respondents. The following conversation expands the insights of the original volume and points toward new directions in Wharton scholarship.
