This black comedy traces the downward spiral of a wellborn but penniless heroine, Lily Bart, who lives among the nouveau riche of New York City. Wharton presents a subtle but searing commentary on a society that desires women to be little more than hothouse flowers yet is willing to destroy such women should they dare to defy the dictates of artificial conventions.
