  • Tragedy And Symbolism In Edith Writing
    1,022 words
    ... ene. Edith Wharton once said this about the novel (Springer 46): The exorable fact closed in on him like prison- warders hand- cuffing a convict. There was no way out. He was a prisoner for life, and now his one ray of light was to be extinguished. Zeena and Mattie are described as two witch-like women that hold Ethan prisoner for life in his depressing world. Ethan is bound to a life that does not satisfy him. He must now depend on Zeena when once it was he that cared for her. Ethan Frome w...

  • Ethan Frome Edith Wharton
    1,083 words
    There is a well-known expression that states, "There are two sides to every coin. " This is no different when it comes to Mrs. Frome. She is either Zeena, a mean, cruel hag or Zenobia, a munificent, compassionate woman. In the book Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, Zeena is described as thin and hard. While in the short story Zenobia by Gina Berrault, Zenobia is described as slender, and gentle. There are two different "Zenobia's" depicted and they are very paradoxical. Each author has used her own ...

  • How Reliable Is The Narrator In Ethan Frome
    1,293 words
    I quote: I had the story, bit by bit, from various people, and, as generally happens in such cases, each time it was a different story. This opening paragraph encapsulates the main ideas of my presentation today. How reliable is the narrator in Edith Wharton's novel, Ethan Frome? Edith Wharton uses the narrators sketchy account of Ethan Frome's life to generate mystery and insecurity in the story. She uses the nameless engineer as a device to deliberately establish a feeling of uncertainty, as w...

    The views of women in D. W. Griffiths The Birth Of Nation, Sherwood Andersons Winesburg, Ohio and Edith Wharton's The House Of Mirth To my mind it is not necessary to tall what role does a woman play in life of our society and in a life of mankind in general. But every woman has her own life and every life is different. Every woman is different in her character thus in her yearnings and in her attitude to life. I wish to examine in this essay three women and three attitudes to life. D. W. Griffi...

    Ethan Frome Ethan Frome (main character of Ethan Frome) was a man who lived in his own world of silence. Ethan also lived in the small, dark town of Starkfield, Massachusetts. He was the most striking figure in his town yet he was but the ruin of a man. By many people Ethan was mistaken for an old man though he was not more than fifty-two. This narration is a far cry from the character of Newland Archer (main character in The Age of Innocence). Newland was a dashing young man who was part of New...

    Ethan Frome as a Psychological Novel When Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote his novel, The Scarlet Letter, he was praised as being the father of the psychological novel.

    The Vilification of Women in The Great Gatsby and Ethan Frome Women have played an important role in American literature. Unfortunately, this role was often negative, without cause to be so. Edith Wharton's Ethan Frome and F. Scott Fitzgeralds The Great Gatsby are examples of American literature in which women are needlessly vilified. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald presents three women in an especially bad light. Daisy Fay Buchanan, the narrators cousin, is the most obvious. Daisy is selfish an...

  • 19 Th Century Age Of Innocence
    3,243 words
    Edith Wharton's books are considered, by some, merely popular fiction of her time. But we must be careful not to equate popularity with the value of the fiction; i. e. , we must not assume that if her books are popular, they are also primitive. Compared to the works of her contemporary and friend, Henry James, whose books may seem complex and sometimes bewildering; Wharton's The Age of Innocence appears to be a simplistic, gossipy commentary of New York society during the last decade of the 19 t...

  • Upper Class Society Edith Wharton
    797 words
    Roman Fever is an outstanding example of Edith Wharton's theme to express the subtle nuances of formal upper class society that cause change underneath the pretense of stability. Wharton studied what actually made their common society tick, paying attention to unspoken signals, the histories of relationships, and seemingly coincidental parallels. All of these factors contribute to the strength and validity of the story of Mrs. Slade and Mrs. Ansley. Roman Fever at first strikes the reader as the...
