  • Ethan And Mattie Falls In Love
    1,073 words
    Ethan Frome Project: # 3 Psychological Analysis Narrator: The narrator of the story is a simple man who tries to take on an almost futile task. This is an almost futile task because the townspeople such as Ned Hale and Ruth Varnum do not like to talk about Frome. The townspeople do not avoid the subject of Frome due to disapproval, but rather a sense of such extreme sadness that it is difficult to speak about. This task is to find out about Ethan Frome's past. More specifically the narrator want...

  • 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...

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...

    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.

    They say that if you give a man the necessary tools and supplies, he will build himself a trap. This trap is made unconsciously; therefore, it cannot be escaped; the solution cannot be found. The only solution that suffices is to live with this trap, sadly, for life. But is it the only solution? In Edith Wharton's romantic, yet tragic novel Ethan Frome, the need for affection causes Ethan Frome to gradually shed his taciturnity and bring his emotions to life. Early in the novel, Ethan's passiven...

    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...
