Abstract

This classic novel demonstrates a critique of America as the characters grieve over a fallen Europe. Focusing on powerful wealthy families in New York in 1870s, this novel discusses cultural concepts dominant at that time: capitalism, high art, family, marriage, and citizenship. The edition owned by Flagler College is a three-part format-annotated text, context, and criticism to help readers better understand, analyze, and appreciate the literature.

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include the Hotel Ponce de Leon and the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche.
