    Ethan Frome

    believe Ethan Frome lost control of his life when his mother died.
    After his mother's funeral, Ethan did not want to be left alone on the farm,
    so he asked Zeena to stay with him. At first, Ethan enjoys her company.
    However, Zeena soon becomes a nuisance to Ethan, and prevents him from
    becoming an engineer in a large city. After being married a year, Zeena
    becomes sick herself, and the only time she talks to Ethan is to complain or
    show her discontent.
    After Mattie comes to the farm, Ethan does not love Zeena at all. He
    thinks the only pleasure she has left is to inflict pain on him. Since Zeena
    is a burden on Ethan, he naturally wants to improve his life. The reason he
    does not have control of his life is because he is married to Zeena, and he
    is not brave enough to go away with Mattie. The reason he is married to Zeena
    is because his mother died. Since Zeena is why Ethan does not have control of
    his life, and Ethan married her because his mother died, the point in time
    when Ethan lost control of his life is when his mother died.
    I believe Ethan could have changed the direction of his life if he had

    of his life was because he was married to Zeena. If he would have married
    Mattie and left Zeena, he would not have been in the sled accident, and
