Ethan Frome - Edith Wharton - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Ethan Frome:

Ethan's tragic love triangle.

My favorite Edith Wharton quote from the book:

“I had the sense that the deeper meaning of the story was in the gaps.”

Questions to ponder while reading Ethan Frome:

What do you regret doing?

Are you happily married?

My thoughts about Ethan Frome:

My sympathies are with Ethan.

A complete tragedy.

Life isn't fair, not at all.
