One such is the descent motif, where Mrs. Mallard would walk the stairs to be reunited with her husband and die in the process, while Mr. Nilson would descend into his one chance to make a friend, however decides to ascend back up into his house. Both stories also use the season of Spring and sunlight as the setting of the novel, and spring could be seen as new life or revelation. Both uses of spring are ironic with Mr.Nilson rejecting his new opportunity, while Mrs. Mallard straight up dies in a season of birth and life. Both the stories use lines such as, “She could see in the open square before her house the tops of trees that were all quiver with the new spring life”, (Chopin 4) and, “But he could detect nothing except a faint lemony scent, rather agreeable than otherwise, which evidently emanated from the bushes budding in the sunshine” (Galsworthy 1) which both convey a sense of beauty and spring life, contrasted with the inner turmoil of both the main characters. Chopin and Galsworthy also use character names to also convey their point.
