Classical Lecture Series: Edith Wharton and the Villas of Rome
Hosted by the Southern California Chapter
Edith Wharton’s prolific career as a fiction writer is well-known. But her unusual ability both to write and to observe puts her at the forefront of Italian garden critics as well; her book Italian Villas and their Gardens remains today a scholarly resource on the subject. Eight Roman villas described by Wharton in her influential book will be analyzed, as well as the influence of the villas on Wharton's own houses and her novels.
