The eye belongs to a living human, yet with the narrator 's uneasiness, he finds a way to not only get rid of the eye, but the old man as well.

However, when one takes into account, all of the dialogue, all of the symbolism and imagery, all of the primary themes, Ethan Frome transforms into a story concerning how quickly a man’s mind, body, and spirit can be broken apart, reassembled, and broken back down again.

Even the autobiographical sections are devoted mostly in part to describing those in Cowley’s presence, from Tristan Tzara to Hart Crane: they speak through Cowley as he compiles his memories. His personal experiences and struggles are those most often generalized as common experience, while his depictions of meetings of the minds are written directly from his perspective. However, with this alternation, the communality of the experience becomes more plausible, especially as his encounters with the same people often occur in various geographic locations. All these writers, then, build upon similar banks of experience, often directly coinciding with those of others and abstractly forming the generation that Cowley ultimately defines, retrospectively examining the moral and cultural codes which influenced their
