    Major themes in Ethan Frome include silence, isolation, illusion, and the consequences that are the result of living according to the rules of society. Wharton relies on personal experiences to relate her thematic messages. Throughout her life as a writer, Wharton would schedule the time that she wrote around social engagements and she did not readily discuss her writing. In Ethan Frome, Wharton's descriptive imagery is one of the most important features of her simple and efficient prose style. Her descriptions serve a definite stylistic and structural purpose. The figurative language used by Wharton includes metaphors and similes.

    Literary Companion Series - My Antonia (hardcover edition) (Literary Companion Series) Readings on Ethan Frome Series By Christopher Smith. “Ethan Frome”, published in by Edith Wharton, is the story of a man who is trapped by duty. This novella is different from the kind of books Wharton usually wrote involving the upper classes from which she came. Ethan Frome begins with an Engineer who is .

    It marks the resting place of one of his ancestors, also named Ethan Frome, as well as that of the ancestor’s wife, who was named Endurance. They dwelled together in peace for fifty years, the stone announces. Ethan wonders if the same words will be written about him and Zeena. Arriving home, Ethan finds the door locked. Wharton once again shifts the point of view to the first person; The Narrator resumes the story about Ethan Frome that he began in the prologue more than twenty years after the tragedy experienced by Ethan and Mattie. The epilogue is a denouement, or conclusion to the plot of the main story and the frame story as well.

A ray of hope enters Ethan's life of despair when his wife's cousin Mattie arrives to help. Ethan Frome is the tale of a Massachusetts farmer, his unhappy marriage to Zenobia, and his love for her cousin, Mattie Silver, who lives with them as a housemaid/5().

This is Ethan Frome, who is a lifelong resident and a local fixture of the community. Frome is described by the narrator as "the most striking figure in Starkfield", "the ruin of a man" with a "careless powerful look in spite of a lameness checking each step like the jerk Author: Edith Wharton.

Ethan Frome works his unproductive farm and struggles to maintain a bearable existence with his difficult, suspicious, and hypochondriac wife, Zeenie. But when Zeenie’s vivacious cousin enters their household as a ‘hired girl’, Ethan finds himself obsessed with her and with the possibilities for happiness she comes to represent.

In writing Ethan Frome, Wharton was greatly influenced by Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, Robert Browning's The Ring and the Book and Balzac's short story "La Grande Bretèche," from which she drew her narrative method, Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Blithedale Romance, from which Zeena's name is taken (Ethan's name was based on another Hawthorne character, Ethan Brand), and John Keats' poem.

Literature Network» Edith Wharton» Ethan Frome» Author's Note Author's Note I had known something of New England village life long before I made my home in the same county as my imaginary Starkfield; though, during the years spent there, certain of its aspects became much more familiar to me.

Edith Wharton wrote Ethan Frome as a frame story — meaning that the prologue and epilogue constitute a "frame" around the main story. The "frame" is The N Book Summary. When Ethan’s wife hires her young cousin as a housekeeper, Ethan falls hopelessly in love with her.

The doomed romance set against a stark New England countryside became Wharton’s most widely-read novel. Join Diane and guests for a Readers’ Review of Edith Wharton’s “Ethan Frome.”.

After a week of riding with Ethan, The Narrator and Ethan are caught in a blinding snowstorm on their return to Starkfield. Ethan invites The Narrator to spend the night at his farmhouse. During his unexpected stay with Ethan, The Narrator is able to glean information about Ethan's life.

As a young man, Ethan Frome wanted to become an engineer. In Chapter 1 of Ethan Frome we are sent back in time about 24 years, and we find "Young Ethan Frome" walking on a snowy, moonless night to some mysterious purpose (). The space between the year-old Ethan of the Prologue and the year-old Ethan of .Ethan lives in a world of sick people and he is much affected by it.

Another thing that represents a constraint and that makes the characters feel like prisoners is Starkfield, its climate, its surroundings, and the isolated position of the Fromes’ farm.Despite having finished Ethan Frome a good fortnight or so ago now, Im still haunted by this book, and suspect that I will be for a long time to come.

If youre after a read thats relentlessly desultory but that is, despite its inherent emo-ness, worthy of your emotional investment, then pick up a copy of this book, and read it straight through.
