5 A focus on the ending of Summer has sparked significant debate among critics. Many of these scholars accurately depict Wharton’s strong critique of patriarchal social structures that contain and appropriate female agency. But many of these same critics also want to see embedded in this critique a type of idealization of motherhood, which has been “depreciated, disdained, and ultimately, destroyed” by the representations of patriarchy in the novel (Elbert 4). Monika Elbert reads Wharton as mourning the loss of “motherhood,” represented by the “primeval mother within [Charity]” (7).

As a pregnant unmarried woman, Charity has no real choices: “In the established order of things as she knew them she saw no place for her individual adventure” (153). In the ending of the novel, Wharton completes her critique of the marriage plot by allowing Royall to “save” Charity from possible death and certain destitution. When Royall retrieves Charity from the Mountain, where she has attempted to escape the severe patriarchal codes of her village, Charity is a broken woman. When he takes her in his carriage, her state is described as “complete passiveness” brought on by extreme exhaustion, hunger, cold, and pregnancy (176).
