Love Lost, Love Found, Illicit Love All? ""Roman Fever"" is a short story by American writer Edith Wharton. It was first published in the magazine Liberty in 1934, and was later included in Whartons last short-story collection, The World Over. The setting of the story takes place in the afternoon, in the city of Rome. Two wealthy middle-aged widowed women are visiting Rome with their two unmarried daughters. The exotic setting illustrates the power and class from which the women hail, but the Old Rome context, such as the Colosseum, insinuates Roman Empire-style intrigue. Mrs. Ansley and Mrs. Slade have a bittersweet relationship filled with envy, betrayal, and competition. They compare their lifelong battle for one man, Delphin Slade, and now quarrel regarding who has the more impressive daughter, both of whom, ironically, share the same father... Get Your Copy Now.
