In the middle of Wharton's debutante season, the Jones family returned to Europe in for Wharton's father's health. Wharton's mother, Lucretia Stevens Rhinelander, moved back to Paris in and lived there until her death in Wharton married in and began to build upon three interests--American houses, writing, and Italy.

Her husband, Edward Wharton, shared her love of travel and for many years they spent at least four months of each year abroad, mainly in Italy.

Their friend, Egerton Winthrop, accompanied them on many journeys in Italy. Wharton was At that time Wharton described the main house as "incurably ugly. In , Wharton designed The Mount, her estate in Lenox, Massachusetts , which survives today as an example of her design principles. Edith Wharton wrote several of her novels there, including The House of Mirth , the first of many chronicles of life in old New York. At The Mount, she entertained the cream of American literary society, including her close friend, novelist Henry James , who described the estate as "a delicate French chateau mirrored in a Massachusetts pond".

Wharton was preparing to vacation for the summer when World War I broke out. Though many fled Paris, she moved back to her Paris apartment on the Rue de Varenne and for four years was a tireless and ardent supporter of the French war effort. What began with thirty women soon doubled to sixty, and their sewing business began to thrive. Aided by her influential connections in the French government , she and her long-time friend Walter Berry then president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Paris , were among the few foreigners in France allowed to travel to the front lines during World War I.

She and Berry made five journeys between February and August , which Wharton described in a series of articles that were first published in Scribner's Magazine and later as Fighting France: From Dunkerque to Belfort , which became an American bestseller. She visited the trenches, and was within earshot of artillery fire.

Theodore Roosevelt wrote a two-page Introduction in which he praised Wharton's effort and urged Americans to support the war.

When the war ended, she watched the Victory Parade from the Champs Elysees' balcony of a friend's apartment. After four years of intense effort, she decided to leave Paris in favor of the peace and quiet of the countryside. She would live there in summer and autumn for the rest of her life. Wharton was a committed supporter of French imperialism , describing herself as a "rabid imperialist", and the war solidified her political views. Wharton's writing on her Moroccan travels is full of praise for the French administration and for Lyautey and his wife in particular.

She returned to the United States only once after the war, to receive an honorary doctorate degree from Yale University in The Age of Innocence won the Pulitzer Prize for literature, [59] making Wharton the first woman to win the award. The three fiction judges—literary critic Stuart Pratt Sherman , literature professor Robert Morss Lovett , and novelist Hamlin Garland —voted to give the prize to Sinclair Lewis for his satire Main Street , but Columbia University's advisory board, led by conservative university president Nicholas Murray Butler , overturned their decision and awarded the prize to The Age of Innocence.

Particularly notable was her meeting with F. Scott Fitzgerald , described by the editors of her letters as "one of the better known failed encounters in the American literary annals". She spoke fluent French, Italian, and German, and many of her books were published in both French and English. In Wharton's autobiography A Backward Glance was published. In the view of Judith E.
