This study is divided into two parts. Part One consists of an analysis of the critical reception of each. of Edith Wharton's works of fiction. The aim of Part One is to trace the history of Wharton criticism in the past sixty years in order to discover the possible patterns of critical attitudes towards her fiction both when it first appeared and in the present day. Part Two consists of an enumerated annotated listing of all biographical and critical studies of Edith Wharton and her fiction subject to the limitations stated in the work. Since all present listings of secondary sources on Wharton are at best fragmentary, the purpose of Part Two is to compile as complete a bibliography as possible in order to help future students in further research [TRUNCATED]
