    Lily Bart enjoys an equitable standing within the New York City elite. Although she has received generous proposals from wealthy suitors, Lily remains single with hope for an honest and loving marriage. However, her life takes an unexpected twist when a nasty bit of gossip instigates her long descent down the social ladder. Lily escapes the city by joining an acquaintance on a cruise. But this, too, causes irreparable damage to her reputation, and soon Lily finds herself disowned and friendless.

    Read Book 1 Chapter 3 of The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton. The text begins: Bridge at Bellomont usually lasted till the small hours; and when Lily went to bed that night she had played too long for her own good. Feeling no desire for the self-communion which awaited her in her room, she lingered on the broad stairway, looking down into the hall below, where the last card-players were. The House of Mirth is the novel that first established the literary reputation of Pulitzer Prize-winner Edith Wharton. In it, she honed her devastating acerbic style, created one of her most memorable heroines in Lily Bart, and discovered her defining theme: the vulgarity, greed, human frailty, and false social values that form the true foundation of New York society. The House of Mirth Introduction. The House of Mirth was published in by Edith Wharton, a well-known writer from a famous and wealthy New York family. Wharton, in many of her novels, explores and exposes the opulent society in which she lived.
