展现了纽约社会新旧交替的缩影。

《纯真年代》被认为是伊迪丝·华顿结构技巧最为完美的一部小说。作家从自己亲身经历与熟悉的环境中提炼素材,塑造人物,将作品题材根置于深厚的现实土壤之中。尤其通过博福特命运浮沉这一线索与主人公爱情悲剧的主线相互映衬,使一个看似寻常的爱情故事具备了深刻的社会现实意义。在人物塑造方面,作家淡化人物社会行为、着力表现人物内心世界的尝试无疑是对现实主义创作手法的发展。而这一切使《纯真年代》成为一部经久不衰的杰作。

The Age of Innocence is Edith Wharton's twelfth novel, initially serialized in four parts in the Pictorial Review magazine in 1920, and later released by D. Appleton and Company as a book in New York and in London. It won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making it the first novel written by a woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and thus Wharton the first woman to win the prize. The story is set in upper-class New York City in the 1870s.

Edith Wharton (born Edith Newbold Jones; January 24, 1862–August 11, 1937) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, short story writer, and designer. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927, 1928 and 1930. Wharton combined her insider's view of America's privileged classes with a brilliant, natural wit to write humorous, incisive novels and short stories of social and psychological insight. She was well acquainted with many of her era's other literary and public figures, including Theodore Roosevelt.

The day was fresh, with a lively spring wind full of dust. All the old ladies in both families had got out their faded sables and yellowing ermines, and the smell of camphor from the front pews almost smothered the faint spring scent of the lilies banking the altar.
