By name alone, Starkfield already lets us know what kind of town the story is going to set in; a foreshadowing of the town itself and its inhabitants. A bare town that does not have much in the way of entertainment, and one that makes it difficult for its population to prosper. Early in the story, Harmon Gow—who despite having a small role in the whole of the story—sets a frame for the reader by remarking that “[m]ost of the smart ones get away” (Wharton). Those that do not leave seem to become as dull and bare as the town itself, and example of this is our main character Ethan Frome, who for all intents and purposes was regarded as smart fellow, yet was unable to leave this bleak town.
“When we reached Horsehead Landing, lightning was playing across half the sky and thunder roared out, hiding even the sound of the sea. The sun disappeared and darkness descended, almost like night. Flocks of marsh crows flew by, heading inland to their roosting trees; and two egrets, squawking, arose from the oyster-rock shallows and careened away. Doodle was both tired and frightened, and when he stepped from the skiff he collapsed onto the mud, sending an armada of fiddler crabs rustling off into the marsh grass”(10).

Throughout the story, you discover the guilt within each of the five women: Adah, Leah, Rachel, Orleanna, and Ruth May.

Symbolism in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn John Green states, “ one of the reasons that metaphor and symbolism are important in books is because they are so important to life. Like, for example say you’re in high school and you’re a boy and you say to a girl: ‘Do you like anyone right now?’- that’s not the question you’re asking. The question you’re asking is, ‘Do you like me?’” This quote is significant to Mark Twain’s novel, Huckleberry Finn because Twain uses many examples of symbolism through settings.
