"The Greater Inclination" was the earliest collection of short fiction by Edith Wharton. Published by Charles Scribner's Sons on 25 March 1899, the first printing of 1,250 sold out by June 1899. The collection consisted of eight works: seven short stories, and one short play in two acts. Like much of her later work, they touch on themes of marriage, male/female relationships, New York society, and the nature and purpose of art. One of the stories, "The Twilight of the God," is written as a short play. The short-story "Souls Belated" has been analyzed by Benjamin Madeira.

This is the short story under review expressing the experiences of Lydia going through a divorce while being involved in an extramarital affair with another man named Ralph Gannett. In the short story, Lydia is seen to defy the societal norms regarding woman roles in marriages. This is evident from her approach towards her marriage and the resultant relationship she gets into with Gannett. In a journey that they share, Lydia is about to abandon her new partner but suddenly she stops. There is, however, no evidence that another marriage would ensue from the relationship. Nevertheless, we do not need to share her deliberations, for in the course of the story she has already put into words her belief: “no ceremony is needed to consecrate our love for each other” (Wharton 95).
