Anna Catherine Bahlmann (1849-1916) & Edith Wharton (1862-1937)
Edith Wharton was a major American literary figure in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and, though she is best known as a novelist and short-story writer, she also wrote poetry and non-fictional works on interior and landscape design. Wharton was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize, awarded in 1921 for her novel The Age of Innocence (1920). In addition to critical and bibliographic scholarship on Wharton, summary information is available in the standard print and online resources.
