Part of the Collins Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

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.
