The Goldfinch, serving as a final link between Theo and his mother, and representative of his last moments with her, still remains so important to Theo because of the connection to his mother. While he disdains the life and its fleetingness, it is from the life of his mother that he gains such a high appreciation for art. Within Sarah Nicole Prickett’s “Style is Fate,” a literary criticism of The Goldfinch for The New Inquiry, Prickett asserts, “The Goldfinch is a brace against the void.” It is interesting to consider how the Tartt herself employs one of the main themes of the novel in the creation of her work.

Chopin’s use of literary devices such as imagery, irony, foreshadowing and symbolism perfectly carves out the conditional love of Armand for Désirée and their child; however, Chopin uses these same devices to enhance the unconditional love of Désirée’s mother for her daughter and grandchild. Armand’s love for Désirée is the epitome of conditional love. This is prevalent throughout the story - from the moment he falls in love with her until the moment he banishes her from his home and his life. Initially, Armand is struck by love so suddenly, it seems nearly impossible: “...as if struck by a pistol shot” (1). The simple imagery used her foreshadows the inevitable quick disappearance of Armand’s love as it creates a stigma of provisionalism in his emotions.
