Ethan Frome, a poor, downtrodden New England farmer is trapped in a loveless marriage to his invalid wife, Zeena. His ambition and intelligence are oppressed by Zeena's cold, conniving character. When Zeena's young cousin Mattie arrives to help care for her, Ethan is immediately taken by Mattie's warm, vivacious personality. They fall desperately in love as he realizes how much is missing from his life and marriage. Tragically, their love is doomed by Zeena's ever-lurking presence and by the social conventions of the day. Ethan remains torn between his sense of obligation and his urge to satisfy his heart's desire up to the suspenseful and unanticipated conclusion.… (mer)

Probably more like 4.5/5. A lot of people seem to dislike this book because of how depressing it is, but that's one of the reasons I really liked it. I like depressing stories for some reason--they can be really beautiful sometimes. Wharton was such an eloquent writer, and since I wasn't all that fond of The Age of Innocence, I am very glad I decided to pick up Ethan Frome. ( )

I decided it was time to read this. It's a small book and I like Edith Wharton, so it seemed an easy decision.

It's pretty bleak, for the most part. It takes place in the 1800s. Frome is a man who had an accident that disfigured his face. He is married and determined to make his way with his disfigurement, in spite of hard times and a difficult, demanding wife.

By chance he meets a young woman who is the antithesis of his wife and little by little falls for her. He even decides to take a chance and meet with her instead of going on a trip to a nearby town, to take her on a sled down a wintry hill. Which he does...but it goes wrong.

It is here that it started to read more like a Wharton novel. An unexpected and, for me, delightful ending, making the dull drudgery of reading about Frome's hopeless condition well worth it. Yeah. I liked it. ( )

Good Lord. What a tale of woe! I love Edith Wharton, generally, and her turns of phrase in Ethan Frome are lovely, but this is just a story, not a full-bodied work with well developed characters. It briefly -- I mean, like one of Aesop's fables -- explores the harsh effects of societal and economic constraints on families and personal fulfillment. Moral of the story? Maybe, no options leads to despair and dumb ideas? Overall, due to his begrudging sense of duty, Ethan's life is all downhill, as it were... ;) ( )

Can't account for how it's taken me so long to get to this slim volume, which is just as juicy as they say. In retrospect, I am struck by the fact that Wharton chose to make her narrator an engineer, a profession that would have been denied her, Zenobia, and Mattie because of their sex and denied Ethan because of the obligations of farm and family. It's like while chronicling the dead-end rural life of late 19th century New England, Wharton acknowledges that an alternative exists for those lucky enough to be born with the right gender and the right resources. The edition I read includes a great introduction by Elizabeth Ammons, which among other things notes that Wharton may have been an outlier by forging an unlikely career as an accomplished author, but less so when it came to reflecting and even casually expressing commonly held white supremacist notions. Ammons also notes Wharton filed for divorce just two years after publishing this. ( )

It will only take you the afternoon, but it’s shocking snowy ending will leave you pondering it for days.

I had the story, bit by bit, from various people, and, as generally happens in such cases, each time it was a different story. (Author's Introductory Note)
The village lay under two feet of snow, with drifts at the windy corners.
Citat

He never turned his face to mine, or answered, except in monosyllables, the questions I put, or such slight pleasantries as I ventured. He seemed a part of the mute melancholy landscape, an incarnation of its frozen woe, with all that was warm and sentient in him fast bound below the surface; but there was nothing unfriendly in his silence. I simply felt that he lived in a depth of moral isolation too remote for casual access, and I had the sense that his loneliness was not merely the result of his personal plight, tragic as I guessed that to be, but had in it, as Harmon Gow had hinted, the profound accumulated cold of many Starkfield winters.
...we came to an orchard of starved apple-trees writing over a hillside among outcroppings of slate that nuzzled up through the snow like animals pushing out their noses to breathe. Beyond the orchard lay a field or two, their boundaries lost under drifts, and above the fields, huddled against the white immensities of land and sky, one of those lonely New England farmhouses that make the landscape lonelier.
