Let's just have a thread where we can discuss a particular book at one time. It's not really the same as any of the other threads, so..... I guess you could say we're on Ethan Frome right now, but if you have another just say so! But anyways, I do think the symbolism in the book was amazing, like I said in my pm. The New England setting just represents isolation. And if you think about it, so many other times just point to being alone. Like the snowstorm, sledding in the dark, and Zeena being so out of it!
