Edith Wharton was a famous American novelist, poet, and short story author. Wharton’s final short story collection, The World Over, was published in 1936, and “Roman Fever” is a story from that collection. “Roman Fever” concerns two wealthy American ladies, Mrs. Ansley and Mrs. Slade, who are visiting Rome with their daughters. These older widows seem friendly, but secretly despise each other, as they both were in love years ago with Mrs. Slade’s late husband. Mrs. Ansley finally reveals that her daughter was really fathered by Mr. Slade, not Mr. Ansley!
