The fruit of the tree by Edith Wharton( Book )

3 editions published in 1907 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member 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

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.

The dawn of a to-morrow by Frances Hodgson Burnett( Book )

5 editions published between 1905 and 1906 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dawn of a Tomorrow is a novella by the English-American novelist and writer Frances Hodgson Burnett who is more known for her children's classics. The story was first serialized in a magazine in the beginning of the twentieth century and was also adapted to the stage and performed numerous times. It tells the story of a desperate gentleman with the resolution to commit suicide by having a pistol's bullet in the head. He goes to buy the pistol, yet he gets lost on his way back home because of the London fog. As he is strolling through the streets of the city, he meets a young beggar and gives her a coin. She invites him to drink a cup of coffee with her and strangely succeeds in making him forget about his misery and despair for a while. Generally, drawing on a rather Christian conception of the world, Burnett's story is about not losing faith in goodness and in life in spite of all possible hardships. Burnett incites her readers to be always optimistic since there are at least "two ways of looking at a London fog." The story is also an invitation for the wealthy to think about the miseries of the poor
