      The Age of Innocence focuses on the wealthiest and the most powerful in New York society in the s, but we can't help but feel, well, sorry for them. The characters live in constant fear of being excluded or shunned or, worse, live in a world where appearance is everything, where society is rigidly structured with certain families on top and everyone else below, and where rules. The Age of Innocence Edith Wharton's novel The Age of Innocence captures a moment in time, New York in the s, a period frequently referred to as the Gilded Age.
