(1878)


In 1878, Edith Wharton's father arranged for a collection of two dozen original poems and five translations, Verses, to be privately published. In 1880, she had five poems published anonymously in the Atlantic Monthly, an important literary magazine. Despite these early successes, she was not encouraged by her family or her social circle, and though she continued to write, she did not publish anything more until her poem "The Last Giustiniani" was published in Scribner's Magazine in October 1889.
