My shift got cut short because of packing. Even though the trip is scheduled for weeks from now. Weeks Later Things started to change; Silence hovered over the house, dinner was what seemed to be a room of despair, and timed started to run out. “Packed?” Mom asked, staring at the dented floor. Unlike my father, she was supportive of my trip, but shaky on my leaving.
Winter was a hardening season, and toughened anyone who lived there. An elderly man declares Ethan has “..been in Starkfield too many winters (Wharton 2),” for he is a tough man that seems to belligerently fight through anything that tests his endurance. Zeena nurses his mother as she was dying, Zeena falling ill after they got married, his true lover Mattie always just out of his reach, not enough money to live a comfortable life, and the crash in which him and Mattie were forever torn apart; proving that even if they could find a way to be together they would be torn away in the end. All of these things occurred and yet Ethan Frome pushes on, at war with his own life. Ethan was miserable because his life was miserable.
Ethan met Zeena when he was caring for his mother that died from…. Ethan claims that she filled the emptiness within him that he longed for.

Would you be heartbroken if a member of your loving family suddenly died right in front of you due to things that didn 't understand? What about if you repeated the same day over and over and over again until the end of time? The same people every day until you die, on a small island that nobody’s ever heard of.

In The Shining one similarity in comparison to Long Day’s Journey into Night is the fact that both families have an inability to communicate. Danny is able to partly understand what is happening with his family, but fails to ever ask to talk to them about what he is suffering from. Just as Wendy and Jack both know about Danny’s intelligence and abilities, but have never discussed it or acknowledged them. The son also was first to even say the word divorce out loud in reference to his parents, even though Wendy and Jack both were considering it seriously, but they never spoke about to each other about it. While the Torrance family has a lack of conversations about topics, the Tyrone family always is conversing or arguing about something.
