The House of Mirth is the story of Lily Bart, a well-born but penniless high society woman of New York and Newport, who was raised to be the wife to a rich man and a hothouse flower for conspicuous consumption. As an unmarried woman with gambling debts and an uncertain future Lily is destroyed by the society that created her. Wharton's heartbreaking masterpiece has been stimulating discussion since 1905. Join Fellow book lovers and Wharton Scholars in examining this compelling work!
