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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
