Wharton elucidated this memorandum using the exemplification of Ethan Frome’s life; more specifically his internal struggles (e.g. Ethan couldn’t physically admit his love for Mattie), his decisions (e.g. Ethan did not bother trying to win against Zeena to prevent Mattie from being banished from their homes) and showing us the outcome where Ethan attempted suicide. Ethan Frome grew silent following the rules of society. It only made him appear mysterious among others which is emphasized by the narrator.
The book I’ve been reading is A Child Called “It,” by Dave Pelzer. Now that I’m further in this story, that’s based on a true story, it gives more detail what Dave was put through and it makes me sad just reading it. Words can’t describe the times he was put through and he will always have those horrid memories. Nothing will change the way he will think about his father and mother, neither of them cared for him, even though his father acted like he did. But he managed never to do anything about what was happening to his son.
Ethan doesn 't understand that running away from problems isn 't going to make them disappear. He would never talk to Zeena about the problems that they have. It 's apparent that Zeena and Ethan don 't love each other. Their conversations are as minimal as they can get, and they 're both cold around each other. Their relationship is on the edge of breaking apart, and one accurate step would 've helped him be free from this burden.
In the poem “Frankenstein” by Edward Field, symbolism is used to describe not to judge a book by it’s cover. The narrator follows Frankenstein in 3rd person on his adventure of learning what life is. The narrator's tone is encouraging because every time Frankenstein gets knocked down he gets back up. In the beginning Frankenstein escapes his prison. What will he find?
In Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, victor and his creature share many characteristics although they are opposing forces because of their differences.

Someone who looked just like him wouldn’t reject him because they would be able to understand each other, and they could both live happily. Finally, Victor owes happiness to his creation. He did not ask to be created, and he was given a rude introduction to the world. For this, Frankenstein’s monster sees his “father,” Victor, as a cruel father. Victor could prove to his creation that he is a good parent by making him a companion, by making him content with living.
Victor's Obsession In Frankenstein, we learn of a man named Victor Frankenstein. He is very intelligent, and also loves his family. However, during his endeavors to create life, he sacrifices his relationship with his family. When he tries to redeem himself for his mistakes, it is much too late. A majority of his friends and family are now dead.
The story of Frankenstein written by Mary Shelley, is an extravagant and outstanding novel of the 1800’s. Frankenstein is a novel based in the late 18th century highlighting three male characters: Victor Frankenstein an enthusiastic and admiring scientist, an unnamed Creature of Victors making and Walton a captain managing a voyage to the Arctic who relayed the stories of Victor and the Creature to his sister. The relationship between the creature and Victor remains a controversial topic to this day- are they enemies, or is the Victor the Creature? The idea that two characters coexist within one individual is not a popular one, but, can be understood from a psychological viewpoint and a diagnosis of Dissociative Identity Disorder. There is
Ethan’s inability to take risks keeps his life stagnant, immune to change like a decomposed corps in a grave. One of the first risks Ethan failed to take was instigating physical contact with Mattie. Stranded on the back porch, Ethan contemplates taking action, but is unsure what to say or do, only later reflecting on “why had he not kissed her” while they had momentary solitude (Wharton 37). Unsure of her feelings towards him, the precarious action of bestowing her with a kiss would have offered insight to whether or not she reciprocated his emotions. From previous events it is shown that Mattie very well may not harbor emotions towards Ethan as she has been shown to make flirtatious advances towards Denis Eady, which Ethan is “largely oblivious to”
