"A Feast of Words is immensely satisfying . . . reflects a fine understanding of the interior life of a woman writeer. The details of Wharton's life have a freshness here, for they are carefully selected to support the 'thesis that her lifelong love of words sprang from her early emotional impoverishment, and words were a rich bounty that she could absorb with hungering appreciation.' . . . This is a pristine critical biography that never indulges in sexual tattle or mere gossip. . . . Conclusive evidence that Edith Wharton was a major American writer." - Maureen Howard, The New York Times Book Review Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Edith Wharton, American Literature, Biography, Cynthia Griffin Wolff, Ethan Frome, Henry James, Morton Fullerton, Walter Berry, Edward Burlingame, Literary Criticism, Literary Studies).
