This edition includes 10 illustrations. Few understood the isolation and oppression of late 18th and early 19th century like Edith Wharton, yet in Ethan Frome she turned her razor-sharp gaze from the elite echelon and focused instead on an impoverished husband trapped in a loveless marriage. When a cousin arrives to help take care of his ailing wife, the title character is torn between helpless attraction and his sense of moral duty. One of Wharton’s most bleak novels, Ethan Frome also ranks among her best, and the climactic ending, when her main character finally abandons duty, brings the entire story to a shuddering finish.
