In The Age of Innocence, Wharton's use of colour to represent the opposition between innocence and experience is masterful. The subtle way in which yellow (and in particular the device of the yellow rose, connected to the Countess Olenska) are brought to bear to represent infidelity and jealousy, is just so impressive.
