“Bewitched” is a short story by Edith Warton, first published in 1926 in the collection “Here and Beyond”. The stories include ghost stories, character studies and social dramas set in Brittany, New England, and Morocco. Along with “The Young Gentleman”, “Bewitched” shows clear Gothic leanings, especially in its emphasis on architecture and the gradual revealing of secrets. Edith Wharton (1862 – 1937) was an American novelist, playwright, short story writer, and designer. She is famous for using her intimate knowledge of aristocratic New York society to authentically portray life during the Gilded Age. She was the first woman ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1921 and was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1996. Other notable works by this author include: “A Son at the Front” (1923), “The Mother's Recompense” (1925), and “Twilight Sleep” (1927). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
