Edith Wharton (1862-1937) was criticized as an immoral bohemian in her early writing career, primarily because of her books' undoubted focus on the temptations of illicit passion. Wharton uses such situations not for voyeuristic titillation, but in order to analyse much deeper topics, especially the function of both society and cultural morality as barriers to the fulfillment of love and desire. The eponymous hero of 'Ethan Frome' struggles with these mutually exclusive needs of freedom and conformity - with disastrous results.
