Scene 1 - Village Truman Capote characterizes the Village of Holcomb is a vast, desolate place where nothing of significance occurs very often to foreshadow and bring to light the drast contrast between that and the fact that the reader knows the horrific murder takes place there. He promptly builds up the tone of the Holcomb as a picturesque place where everything is perfect and nothing ever goes wrong.

Considerably ironic in part of Doerr, Marie-Laure’s blindness, a part of herself usually perceived as a burden, is what marks her for greatness. Commonly utilized by writers and film directors when presenting orphan children or virtuous and endangered heroines, the blindness of a character serves to draw sympathies from an audience. Although disabilities often dictate a character’s helplessness and incapability to do anything meaningful, Doerr went beyond such portrayal in his depiction of Marie-Laure.

“It was her sister, Josephine who told her, in broken sentences; veiled hints that revealed in half concealing” (6). When Josephine told Louise about Brently’s death, she didn’t show any emotion, but then ran upstairs and locked
Many stories use these elements of writing, strong symbolism appeals the senses and explains the strength of the emotions the character is experiencing. There is a lot of strong symbolism and imagery in this story that also goes along with situational and dramatic irony which both appear in the story. When Brentley Mallard ends up being alive at the end would be the situational irony because it was the opposite of what happened, even though it was foreshadowed he was not dead. The dramatic irony is her dying of “joy”. These literary elements lead to the theme of freedom that Louise was
This shows her relief and quite happiness that now she only has to worry about taking care of herself in the years ahead.

Now she is no longer pitiful and heartbroken but joyful and excited for a life free of her husband’s dominant presence. The story says for the first time in her life, Mrs. Mallard prays for a long life.

Although there is no clear statement that shows Louise to have an oppressive marriage, there are ambiguous statements about the marriage that show she feels caged.

She wept at once, with sudden wild abandonment” (Chopin), due to Brently’s death she is finally able to let out emotions that she has held in for so many years of being a dutiful wife. Once Louise is left alone to grieve she reflects upon her feelings and her marriage. The narrator points out that Louise knows she will cry again for him when she sees his funeral, remembering his “kind, tender hands...the face that had never looked save with love upon her” (Chopin).
