These two themes together make a compelling story that appeals to those who are more sentimental as well as those who enjoy stories containing a plot twist. The conflict of this story is created in a smart way because the author builds up the story by starting it off nice and innocent with an orphan child that is taken in by a loving family then to a drastic change of having a sort of forbidden love. This potentially attracts the reader and drags their attention further into the story.

Even Alcee takes time to write to his wife, Clarisse. The author even describes that he misses his wife and children.
The phrase “The joy that kills” can be taken by the reader either serious or ironic and it depends on the reader’s individual adaptation of the phrase, whether Louise died of the joy about her husband’s return or of the destroy of her new-found, overwhelming joy about her freedom.

This comedy left me wanting a little more tension between the characters. The play is full of stock characters and is tremendously funny, but an overall highly unlikely situation. However, unlike other farces and comedies that I’ve read from this era, there is a very clear story that dramatizes the consequences of lying, even if the protagonist doesn’t learn anything by the end of the tale. I was most surprised about the amount of agency all the women have, especially Isabelle and Sabine. They aren’t afraid to speak their mind or demand that they be heard.
Point of View and Credibility Just like any other autobiography, Keller wrote The Story of My Life in first person point of view, sharing her experiences through her own thoughts and feelings, however, this point of view makes the narrator less credible.
