Edith Wharton's "Roman Fever": A Rune of History.
Bauer, Dale M.
College English, v50 n6 p681-93 Oct 1988
Asserts that "Roman Fever" responds to a reactionary political climate, demonstrating an anti-reactionary thrust to Edith Wharton's fiction. Argues that Wharton deserves credit for articulating the destructive character of a cultural misogyny that led quickly to what she saw in 1933 as "a world whizzing ... crazily to the everlasting abyss."
