9780008110543: Ethan Frome (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘He looked at her hair and longed to touch it again, and to tell her that it smelt of the woods; but he had never learned to say such things…’

One harsh winter in 1900s New England, Ethan Frome toils at his farm while struggling to maintain a bearable existence with his forbidding wife, Zeena. When Ethan takes Zeena’s cousin, Mattie, home from a dance he is entranced: Mattie brings with her the possibility for happiness, and with that she quickly becomes a symbol of hope for Ethan.

First published in 1911, Ethan Frome is an intimate look at choices not made and lives not yet lived. Told through the eyes of a city outsider, this heartbreaking portrait of three lives haunted by thwarted dreams remains for many the most subtle and moving of Wharton’s works.

Review:

‘This love story has an emotional intensity made all the more poignant by the inarticulate reticence of Wharton's characters – a menage a trois consisting of Frome, his querulous wife and her young girl cousin. With quiet assurance, Wharton conveys passion, malaise and tragedy with memorable impact.’ – Evening Standard

Book Description:

Cambridge Literature is a series of literary texts edited for study by students 14-18 years old in English-speaking classrooms.
