    think and reason

    Dear Teachers and Members,
    In a novel I came across this sentence,

    "She resolved to erase him from her memory, think him and reason him out of her life.'

    1. I guess the underlined words means: she thinks of him and judges that she should keep him out of her life. is that correct?
    2. I thought we should write 'think of someone' or 'think about someone' but how come here the author wrote 'think someone'

    Please help me out with your answers. Thanks.

    Re: think and reason

    The writer meant 'think him out of her life and reason him out of her life', i.e., use thought and reason to get him out of her mind completely.
