The main idea of this short story is about the reflections of a women’s thoughts, Mrs. Mallard, after the announcement of her husband 's sudden death in an accident. This story connects to modern day issues because some women are actually being oppressed by their husband or significant other and feel a strong sense of freedom when they pass away. In this analysis there are four main literary devices that are used to illustrate the theme which are metaphors, irony, foreshadows, and similes. The theme that kate chopin used to idntfy the story line is a womens freedom. In this quote, “’Body and soul free!’”, Mrs. Mallard verbally recognizes her freedom now that her husband has died, and it is important to the story because it highlights her true feelings about her husband.
Thus, unlike the characters around her, such as the sneaky minister or the greedy lovers, Hester is the one character who lives by reality instead of appearance. The best example of this is her lifestyle before and after she is shunned. Before her exile, Hester recognizes the unjust nature of the laws around her. She refuses to follow them and present a façade of perfection and happiness. When Dimmesdale demands that she name her baby’s father and promises that her sentence will be lightened as a reward, Hester steadfastly refuses (Hawthorne, 1850).

These words not only make us think that Hazel is speaking to Gus at that moment, but it also reminds us of marriage.
The first is in stanza 3, line 23, when Hemans translates the woman’s song as, “He flings away the broken reed.” (cite) In this metaphor, the woman is not even human, but a now useless object, as she may actually feel. Nevertheless, she is still a mere object to both herself and to Hemans. In this way, the woman is both objectified and pitied. She is nothing more than a broken thing, and in that, deserves sympathy. The second metaphor lies in stanza seven, line 39, when the woman speaks to her child, saying, “Thy mother bears thee far, young Fawn!” (cite).
Furthermore, Giovanni’s death acts as a plot and character convenience that allows David to quarantine love to the past. James Baldwin follows all of the morality rules demanded from popular queer fiction of the 1950s, but what sets the story apart is how the plot arrives at Giovanni’s death. Instead of being dissuaded from exploring and acknowledging his sexuality because of fear and cautionary warning, David is left incapable to love at the end because he can’t imagine loving anybody with the intensity he loved Giovanni. However, David does continues to struggle with his sexuality throughout the final page of the novel, and the death of Giovanni does not allow David to put this issue behind him. Perhaps the greatest statement Baldwin could have made with Giovanni’s Room would be to tell us anything of David’s life after Giovanni’s death, but tastefully and cautiously, he instead refrains.
