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. Wharton compels everyone to not exist but to
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.
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. He also easily lets Zeena guilt him in into his sickness.
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 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.

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”

Growing up in a world revolving around Biff, he was never given the chance to excel. Rather, he was left neglected to grow up in the shadow of his older brother. Happy’s actions in the play demonstrate a deeply rooted sense of insecurity: an ever-present need for attention. Despite numerous obvious pleas for recognition, like when Happy said to his father, “I lost weight Pop, you notice?” (Miller 52), he never received so much as a slight acknowledgement.
