From the Back Cover
Set against the bleak winter landscape of New England, Ethan Frome tells the story of a poor farmer, lonely and downtrodden, his wife Zeena, and her cousin, the enchanting Mattie Silver. In the playing out of this short novel's powerful and engrossing drama, Edith Wharton constructed her least characteristic and most celebrated book. In its unyielding and shocking pessimism, its bleak demonstration of tragic waste, it is a masterpiece of psychological and emotional realism. In her introduction the distinguished critic Elaine Showalter discusses the background to the novel's composition and the reasons for its enduring success.

There are 7 stories in "Crucial Instances," 9 in "Descent of Man," 5 in part-1 of her "Early Short Fiction," 6 in part-2 of her "Early Short Fiction," 8 in "The Greater Inclination," 7 in "The Hermit and the Wild Woman," and 10 in "Tales of Men and Ghosts," for a total of 52 short stories (keeping in mind a number of these stories are duplicated and listed as separate entities within the TOC, so the grand total is a bit lower). Some poems are also thrown into the mix, but these appear formatted as prose rather than arranged in stanzas and are uncomfortable to read. These are the reasons an otherwise five star collection gets only four. Nevertheless, at such a low price for so much great content, it's hard to complain too much. Be aware, however, some of her newer works (not yet in the public domain) are missing from it.
UPDATE 06-29-16: Finally, truly complete and well-organized editions have arrived. THE COMPLETE EDITH WHARTON COLLECTION from Falcon Classics contains virtually everything she ever wrote, and active TOCs provide direct access to all content. There are other editions, too, from other ebook bundlers, priced as low as $.99. I would now recommend you go with one of them.
Wharton is a master of accurate characterization, presentation of the most telling details, and rich plot. But the greatest treat about reading the works of Edith Wharton is her writing itself - elegant, impeccable. emotionally resonant, and possessing a perfection of tone applied to each different situation.
Wonder and work able index comes with this one which is quite handy since reading one work after anther would be a bore and I like the option of being able to browse and read what I want when I want.
Wharton is a rather unique literary voice and most who read her work will agree that she can indeed write and write well.
I highly recommend this one.
