Evelyn Esposito Fracasso. In the last several decades, critical studies of Wharton's fiction have focused on this theme of imprisonment, of the "trapped sensibility," but invariably it is related to biographical considerations. This study, however, is not concerned with such. She also introduced more explicit images of imprisonment and rly the interior monologue and the flashback- to reveal the inner consciousness of her protagonists and provide thematic definition.

This study, however, is not concerned with such insights and influences; rather, it concentrates on Wharton's skill as a craftsman in consciously and carefully fitting her narrative techniques to the imprisonment theme.

Plain and simple – distribute your learning over time.

One of the most common themes that Women's Studies students engage with is, Power and Power Imbalance.

Women's studies preceded gender studies as an established field: in the United States the first PhD in women's studies was created in 1990 and the first PhD in gender studies was created in 2005. One of the most common themes that Women's Studies students engage with is, Power and Power Imbalance.

The metaphor of life as prison obsessed Edith Wharton, and, consequently, the theme of imprisonment appears in most of her 86 short stories. In the last several decades, critical studies of Wharton's fiction have focused on this theme of imprisonment, but invariably it is related to biographical considerations. This study, however, is not concerned with such insights and influences; rather, it concentrates on Wharton's skill as a craftsman in consciously and carefully fitting her narrative techniques to the imprisonment theme. Representative tales from Wharton's early period (1891-1904), her major phase (1905-1919), and her later years (1926-1937) have been examined and divided into four categories: individuals trapped by love and marriage, men and women imprisoned by the dictates of society, human beings victimized by the demands of art and morality, and persons paralyzed by fear of the supernatural.
