Wharton Queries: Teachable EW story involving gender and class?

Advertisements
Hello Wharton-loving friends,
I’m a high school teacher about to move my students from a unit on Jane Eyre into American literature including Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and some contemporary writers. I wish we had time to read Ethan Frome, but we don’t. Is there a Wharton short story you would particularly recommend as relatively accessible, relatively short, and interested in the matters of gender and class that interest my students?
Gratefully,
Lelac.
