Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Wolof thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton was edited for three audiences. The first includes Wolof-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL? or TOEIC? preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Wolof speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Wolof in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement? (AP?) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Wolof Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Wolof or English.

Set against the bleak winter landscape of New England, Ethan Frome is the story of a poor farmer, lonely and downtrodden, his wife Zeena, and her cousin, the enchanting Mattie Silver. In the playing out of this short novel's powerful and engrossing drama, Edith Wharton constructed her least characteristic and most celebrated book. In her Introduction, the distinguished critic Elaine Showalter discusses the background to the novel's composition and the reasons for its enduring success.
