"Fedorko's analysis of gender in the Gothic stories is superb, but the most intriguing aspect of her work is her recovery of the Gothic subtext of the novels and nonfiction. . . . Her provocative work both spells out some strands in the complex relation between Wharton's Gothic and Wharton's realism and invites further consideration of this relation."
"Innovative but persuasive. This is a very impressive book, polished, seasoned through careful consideration of new criticism on Wharton's work (the bibliography is excellent), and very much a new way of reading this oeuvre. Not only is Fedorko's approach new, but her inclusion of a number of short stories with the key novels makes the study unusually comprehensive."
