The fruit of the tree by Edith Wharton( Book )
3 editions published in 1907 in English and held by 671 libraries worldwide
"Originally published in 1907, this little-known novel by Edith Wharton (1862-1937), the author of The Age of Innocence and Ethan Frome, was considered controversial for its frank treatment of such issues as labor and industrial condition, drug addiction, mercy killing, desire, and divorce and second marriages." "John Amherst, an idealistic middle manager in a New England textile mill, is committed to improving the deplorable working conditions of the laborers in his charge. But upper management, whose only concern is maximizing profits, frustrates his efforts. When Amherst eventually marries Bessy Westmore, the widow of the former mill owner, he is able at last to initiate an ambitious project of reform." "But happiness for John and Bessy proves to be short-lived. It quickly becomes clear that Bessy does not understand and cannot share her new husband's passion for fair labor conditions and industrial reform. She even resents the time he devotes to his work and the way in which his expenditures impact her extravagant lifestyle." "Complicating the situation is the strong friendship that Bessy's old friend Justine develops with Amherst. Employed as a live-in tutor for Bessy's daughter, Justine eventually finds herself in an untenable position. How she reacts under pressure has lasting consequences for herself and those around her." "In the Fruit of the Tree, Wharton has created a tale of psychological insights, deft social portraiture, and profound ethical questions that remain challenging even today."--Jacket

"In 1914, Henry James began work on a major novel about the immense new fortunes of America's Gilded Age. After an absence of more than twenty years, James had returned for a visit to his native country; what he found there filled him with profound dismay. In The Ivory Tower, his last book, the characteristic pattern underlying so much of his fiction - in which American "innocence" is transformed by its encounter with European "experience"--Receives a new twist: raised abroad, the hero comes home to America to confront, as James puts it, "the black and merciless things that are behind the great possessions."" "James died in 1916 with the first three books of The Ivory Tower completed. He also left behind a "treatment," in which he charted the further progress of his story. This fascinating scenario, one of only two to survive among James's papers, is also published here together with a striking critical essay by Ezra Pound."--Jacket
