Ethan Frome: Readings On

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Introduces a range of responses to Edith Wharton's novel, written by critics of her work from the last 50 years. Essays are in sections focusing on particular aspects of the novel's form and content. Essays on such traditional features as the novel's symbolism, setting, and thematic richness are balanced by feminist explorations of the characters and debates over whether the novel as a whole is a success. All selections illustrate the richness of this masterpiece of thwarted love and its consequences. Includes a biography and chronology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
