Born into wealth and aristocracy, Edith Wharton (1862–1937) was a member as well as an observer of fashionable New York society. Aspirations to authorship consigned her to outsider status among the idle rich; nevertheless, she drew upon her privileged social position to create witty and psychologically insightful novels and short stories about people from all walks of life. This well-rounded introduction to Wharton's works features the complete text of her Pulitzer Prize–winning novel, The Age of Innocence, as well as her haunting novella, Ethan Frome. Several excerpts from her highly influential guide to interior design, The Decoration of Houses, offer samples of Wharton's nonfiction style. The collection also includes four short stories as well as several poems.

D. H. Lawrence (1885–1930) created controversial works that explore the dehumanizing effects of modern life. But in his lifetime the novelist, poet, playwright, and essayist was regarded as little more than a pornographer. Today Lawrence is praised for his artistic vision as well as his integrity, and his books and other writings rank among the English literary canon. This anthology presents the complete text of Lawrence's masterpiece, Sons and Lovers. Additional features include an essay, "Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious," and the short stories "The Prussian Officer," "Odour of Chrysanthemums," and "England, My England." Additional selections include "Snake" and other poems.

Trained in science and as a teacher, H. G. Wells (1866–1946) harbored a passionate concern for political issues. Wells's interests are reflected in his pioneering works of science fiction, which involve time travel, space exploration, alien invasion, and experiments gone awry. A century later, his tales of obsession, revelation, and discovery remain compellingly readable and relevant. This anthology offers readers complete and unabridged versions of Wells's most influential novels: The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The Invisible Man. In addition, five famous short stories include "The Country of the Blind," "The Purple Pileus," "The Crystal Egg," "The Door in the Wall," and the first tale to address bio-terrorism, "The Stolen Bacillus."
