埃伦·奥兰斯卡伯爵夫人是一位波兰伯爵的妻子,曾在欧洲生活多年,现在孤身回到了她在纽约的家,希望摆脱不幸婚姻带来的痛苦,但她不了解纽约社交界的各种规矩。而纽兰·阿彻深谙于此;他的未婚妻,年轻的梅·韦兰也按照这些规矩生活着,因为她无法想象还有其他的生活方式。纽兰、梅和埃伦陷入了一场关于爱情、名誉和责任的战斗。

Countess Ellen Olenska, who has lived for many years in Europe as the wife of a Polish Count, returns alone to her famly in New York. She hopes to leave the pain of her unhappy marriage behind her, but she does not understand the rules of New York society. Newland Archer, however, understands them only too well, and the girl he is engaged to marry, young May Welland, lives her life by the rules, because she cannot imagine any other way of living. Newland, May, and Ellen are caught in a battle between love, honer and duty.

《纯真年代》是美国女作家伊迪丝·华顿创作的长篇小说,也是其代表作。

故事的主要情节发生在19世纪70年代末80年代初的纽约上流社会,讲述的是贵族青年纽兰·阿彻尔与两位女性梅·韦兰和她的表姐埃伦·奥兰斯卡伯爵夫人之间无法抉择的故事。作家从自己亲身经历与熟悉的环境中提炼素材,塑造人物,将作品题材根置于深厚的现实土壤之中。尤其通过博福特命运浮沉这一线索与主人公爱情悲剧的主线相互映衬,使一个看似寻常的爱情故事具备了深刻的社会现实意义。在人物塑造方面,作家淡化人物社会行为、着力表现人物内心世界的尝试无疑是对现实主义创作手法的发展。该作获得1921年美国普利策文学奖。

The Age of Innocence is Edith Wharton's twelfth novel, initially serialized in four parts in the Pictorial Review magazine in 1920, and later released by D. Appleton and Company as a book in New York and in London. It won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making Wharton the first woman to win the prize. The story is set in upper-class New York City in the 1870s, during the Gilded Age.

伊迪丝·华顿(1862-1937),美国女作家。华顿的代表作《纯真年代》于1921年获得普利策文学奖,使她成为第一个获得该奖的女性作家。

Edith Wharton (January 24, 1862 – August 11, 1937) was the first female Pulitzer Prize-winner, American novelist, short story writer, and designer. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927, 1928 and 1930. Wharton combined her insider's view of America's privileged classes with a brilliant, natural wit to write humorous, incisive novels and short stories of social and psychological insight.

19世纪70年代初一月的某个夜晚,当纽兰·阿彻来到纽约音乐学院时,歌剧已经开场。这个年轻人本没有理由不早点到。七点钟时,他已经和母亲、妹妹一起用了晚餐,然后坐在自己的私人图书室里不慌不忙地抽雪茄。然而,时尚的年轻人去听歌剧时是不会早到的,那是社交界不成文的规矩之一。在纽兰·阿彻所身处的纽约,这些规矩是与生死一样重要的大事。

When Newland Archer arrived at the New York Academy of Music, one January evening in the early 1870s, the opera had already begun. There was no reason why the young man should not have come earlier. He had had dinner at seven, alone with his mother and sister, and then sat unhurriedly smoking his cigar in his private library. But fashionable young men did not arrive early at the opera. That was one of the unwritten rules of society, and in Newland Archer’s New York these rules were as important as life and death.
