POEM: Edith Wharton – All Souls

Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton was an American novelist who published thirty-eight books, including that great love story, “Ethan Frome.” The young author wrote her first efforts on brown paper salvaged from parcels. She was not encouraged. “In the eyes of our provincial society,” she was later to say, “authorship was still regarded as something between a black art and a form of manual labor.” Each was equally despised in her social level. Her first acceptance was three poems which she sent to the editor with her calling card attached.
