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 his efforts are frustrated by an upper management whose only concern is maximizing profits. 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 becomes quickly clear that Bessy does not understand and cannot share her new husband's passion for just 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

Tales of men and ghosts by Edith Wharton( Book )

3 editions published in 1910 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the stories in Tales of Men and Ghosts take place in New York City or Europe. The "tales of men" contain subtle plots dealing with the irony of life, while the "tales of ghosts" contain plots based more on psychological perception than the paranormal. Their success depends on what Wharton referred to as their "thermometrical quality." In her opinion, a well-written ghost story had the ability to send "a cold shiver down one's spine." Given her larger works, it is a bit surprising that all but two of the tales, "Afterward" and "The Letters," have male protagonists

The ivory tower by Henry James( )

1 edition published in 1917 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1914, Henry James began work on a major novel about the immense new fortunes of America's Gilded Age. 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. This fascinating scenario, one of only two to survive among James's papers, is also published here together with a striking critical essay by Ezra Pound."--Jacket
