Un des meilleurs ouvrages que j'ai étudiée à la faculté d'anglais.
Très court ouvrage mais à la fois très beau et très triste.

Excellent livre, sombre, qui raconte une tragedie mais sans misérabilisme. L'action se passe à la fin du dix-neuvième siècle où le lecteur est plongé dans un hiver enneigé de l'Amérique profonde, obnubilé par le destin des trois protagonistes principaux. Je l'ai lu en Anglais. Je ne sais pas si la traduction française rend justice à l'écriture fluide, aux descriptions justes, d'Edith Wharton.

Commande reçue sous une semaine mais pas assez soignée: le livre est arrivé tordu et corné (étant plutôt fin, il n'a sûrement pas résisté aux "chocs postaux"). Cependant, vu le prix, ça vaut le coup quand même...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 emotional roller coasters, secrecy, romance, and turmoil 5 juin 2012
Par T. Stewart - Publié sur
When trying to figure out what book it was that I wanted to read, I looked for certain qualities such as: emotional roller coasters, secrecy, romance, and turmoil. For those reasons, it is why I chose to read Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton.

Ethan Frome is the type of book that will keep you in suspense for the entire book, and have you dying for more.

Written in first and second point of view, Ethan Frome is about a semi-young man who lives a miserable life with his sickly wife Zeena. Meanwhile, Ethan is living a fantasy in his mind with his wife's younger cousin, Mattie.

At first, when you begin reading Ethan Frome, you notice that there are many instances of silence occurring. I never seemed to pay attention to it, but when I noticed it finally I realized that it was for major significance. For example when Ethan told Mattie that there was a possibility that she would be leaving, "he looked at her and pressed her against him so closely that he seemed to feel her warmth in his veins" (32.) You don't hold someone that close if you don't actually feel something more for him or her. When I read that part, it made me contemplate whether or not Mattie and Ethan secretly had a relationship. Another theme that is of major occurrence is his fantasies or hopes that Ethan has. When Zeena finally left to go pick up her medication, Ethan had already begun, "picturing what it would be like that evening when he and Mattie were there after supper...they would sit there, one on each side of the stove, like a married couple" (42). Its as if this is not even a dream, but more of an imaginative plan that he's working on. "It is exquisitely written by an author with remarkable observations and imagination." I completely agree because Edith Wharton has a way of writing to convey to her audience the slight and sutel glances of flirtation between Ethan and Mattie that would still be hidden if not for her vivid descriptions.

Ethan Frome is the best book that you could ever read. It has a mixture of love, hate, lies, and betrayal of the heart. This book will take you on a mind-blowing ride that will keep you wondering about what's going to happen next.

My boyfriend told me to read this book. I was skipping along quite enjoying the book and then it ended. It really ended. Had to re-read the last 10 or 15 pages to make sure what I was thinking was actually what I had read. You read it and then you'll understand.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "We shall never be alone again like this" 13 juin 2011
Par E. A Solinas - Publié sur
Edith Wharton filled her novels with a feeling of ruin, passion and restriction. People can fall in love, but rarely do things turn out well.

But but few of even her books can evoke the feeling of "Ethan Frome," whick packs plenty of emotion, vibrancy and regrets into a short novella. While the claustrophobic feeling doesn't suit her writing well, she still spins a beautiful, horrifying story of a man facing a life without hope or joy.

It begins nearly a quarter of a century after the events of the novel, with an unnamed narrator watching middle-aged, crippled Ethan Frome drag himself to the post-office. He becomes interested in Frome's tragic past, and hears out his story.

Ethan Frome once hoped to live an urban, educated life, but ended up trapped in a bleak New England town with a hypochondriac wife, Zeena, whom he didn't love. But then his wife's cousin Mattie arrives, a bright young girl who understands Ethan far better than his wife ever tried to. Unsurprisingly, he begins to fall in love with her, but still feels an obligation to his wife.

But then Zeena threatens to send Mattie away and hire a new housekeeper, threatening the one bright spot in Ethan's dour life. Now Ethan must either rebel against the morals and strictures of his small village, or live out his life lonely. But when he and Mattie try for a third option, their affair ends in tragedy.

Wharton was always at her best when she wrote about society's strictures, morals, and love that defies that. But rather than the opulent backdrop of wealthy New York, here the setting is a bleak, snowy New England town, appropriately named Starkfield. It's a good reflection of Ethan Frome's life, and a good illustration of how the poor can be trapped.

Even when she describes a "ruin of a man" in a cold, distant town, Wharton spins beautiful prose ("the night was so transparent that the white house-fronts between the elms looked gray against the snow") and eloquent symbolism, like the shattered pickle dish. There's only minimal dialogue -- most of what the characters think and feel is kept inside.

Instead she piles on the atmosphere, and increases the tension between the three main characters, as attraction and responsibility pull Ethan in two directions. It all finally climaxes in the disaster hinted at in the first chapter, which is as beautifully written and wistful as it is tragic.

If the book has a flaw, it's the incredibly small cast -- mainly just the main love triangle. Ethan's not a strong or decisive man, but his desperation and loneliness are absolutely heartbreaking, as well as his final fate. Mattie seems more like a symbol of the life he wants that a full-fledged person, and Zeena is annoying and whiny up until the end, when we see a different side of her personality. Not a stereotypical shrew.

"Ethan Frome" is a true tragedy -- as beautifully written as it is, it's still Wharton's description of how a man merely survives instead of living, hopeless and devastated.

One of the most profoundly sad books I have ever read. At times I wished for so much more from it but once you accept that it is what it is, you can feel for all of the characters and the bitter reality that many people are "trapped" by circumstance and folly. Well worth reading but exceedingly bleak.
