Ask a question about this product

Perhaps the best-known and most popular of Edith Wharton's novels, Ethan Frome is widely considered her masterpiece.  Set against a bleak New England background, the novel tells of Frome, his ailing wife Zeena and her companion Mattie Silver, superbly delineating the characters of each as they are drawn relentlessly into a deep-rooted domestic struggle.  Burdened by poverty and spiritually dulled by a loveless marriage to an older woman, Frome is emotionally stirred by the arrival of a youthful cousin who is employed as household help.  Mattie's presence not only brightens a gloomy house but stirs long-dormant feelings in Ethan.  Their growing love for one another, discovered by an embittered wife, presages an ending to this grim tale that is both shocking and savagely ironic.  5 3/16” x 8 ¼”.  Paperback; 96 pages.
