"Glancing by chance at an advertisement in the Spectator, Stephen Glennard perceives a way to escape the downward spiral his career has taken, begin a new life for himself, and win the hand of the beautiful Alexa Trent. It would seem he has one highly sought-after possession: the letters written to him by the eminent and now deceased author, Margaret Aubyn. All he need do is silence his uneasy conscience and sell the letters for publication." "As the publicity frenzy around its publication heightens, the Aubyn Letters becomes the latest hot topic among the glamorous and money-driven society that Glennard's wealth now gives him entree to. And the source of greatest fascination is the identity of the man whom Aubyn so adored by who has betrayed her so irrevocably. Glennard, resolute in his silence, can only watch in dismay as, from the grave, Aubyn begins to exert a powerful and unmistakable influence over him."--BOOK JACKET

Artemis to Actaeon, and other verse by Edith Wharton( )

41 editions published between 1909 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critics have suggested that due to the emotional quality of the poems contained in Artemis to Actaeon and Other Verse, €Wharton may have used poetry as a journalistic emotional outlet, turning to it when she needed to infuse order onto her emotional life. Given the use of formal patterns, motifs and mythical archetypes in classical poetry, it is easy to see how Wharton could shape allegories for her own life using the same structures and archetypes. These poems explore Wharton's feminist concerns regarding women's emotions, sexuality, desire and fertility
