Emily Ryan English 2020 William Dean Howells’s “Editha” (1528-1537) 11/19/07 1. “Read” Editha’s personality from the descriptions given of her thoughts, her words, and her actions. What kind of person is she? What does she value? How does George’s description of her appearance help define her? Editha is a very passionate person. She anticipated George’s return for a while, and you can tell this by the way she says her words. For example, she “exulted” that they were reunited. She is very fond of George and thinks of him as nearly perfect. She wants things to be perfect and happy. She doesn’t think that war is a negative thing, but more of helping others. She values her country and God. George describes her as a gorgeous flower which shows her happy outlook and personality. Each attribute of hers he describes has a bright color associated with it. This shows how bright and cheery her personality is. 2.
