The Age of Innocence – Discussing a Forbidden Romance

I’ve finally done another classics discussion video! This time around, we’re taking a closer look at Edith Wharton’s The Age of Innocence, Pulitzer Prize winner and renowned classic. It is, at its core, what I’d call a forbidden romance. But it’s also a tragedy, an identity crisis, and humour-filled display of how to avoid a scandal in 1870’s New York.

Needless to say, I adore this book. I’m not really talking about this in my video, but Edith Wharton’s prose is so unique and humorous that I actually laughed from the very first page. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. So – back to the video. As usual, I talk about the story in great detail before going into my analysis and discussion. I believe that anyone, regardless of whether you’ve read it or not, should be able to enjoy the video (if you don’t care about spoilers).

If you decide to give it a watch, do let me know your thoughts! And don’t forget to subscribe, of course ❤
