Product description

Synopsis

This Norton Critical Edition includes: the 1922 edition of the novel; nine letters on "Ethan Frome" from the years 1910-1912; contextual accounts of 19th-century American life; eight contemporary reviews of the novel; and seven recent critical assessments.

From the Back Cover

Set against the bleak winter landscape of New England, Ethan Frome tells the story of a poor farmer, lonely and downtrodden, his wife Zeena, and her cousin, the enchanting Mattie Silver. In the playing out of this short novel's powerful and engrossing drama, Edith Wharton constructed her least characteristic and most celebrated book. In its unyielding and shocking pessimism, its bleak demonstration of tragic waste, it is a masterpiece of psychological and emotional realism. In her introduction the distinguished critic Elaine Showalter discusses the background to the novel's composition and the reasons for its enduring success.
