The Irony Of Life As Seen In The Jewellery

The Irony Of Life As Seen In The Jewellery

The theme of "The Jewelry" by Guy de Maupassant is that life will be stuffed with irony. I think that the writer actually went slightly overboard on this theme. Though I loved no less for his overindulgence. Every of the ironies shown in "The Jewelry reveal how folks keep secrets from one another or themselves, and/or reveals how people ignore a scenario that upsets them if they're compensated enough. That compensation on this story is money.

The plot moved from one irony to the following to disclose both of these characteristics in M. Lantin and/or his first wife. The first couple of paragraphs reveal how respectable M. Lantin's spouse is suppose to be. However even this early within the story, the author states that "The young woman seemed to be the very ideally suited of that pure good woman to whom every young man goals of entrusting his future." That "...seemed to be..." lets the reader know that the younger woman was not the pure girl everybody took her for. This shows that the woman was hiding one thing, though what that something was we did not discover out till later within the story.

The second irony we come across in this story, is the truth that they "...appeared to live in luxurious", which the truth is they did. Unbeknown to M. Lantin, his paychecks had been being supplemented by his wife's lovers. That they have been paying for his good food and fine wine. I imagine if he had opened his eyes, and seemed over the household funds; he would have identified the cash was coming from someplace other than his paycheck. In this respect M. Lantin was being fooled by his personal self as well as by his wife. But why not, he was joyful!

And that takes us to our third irony. If M. Lantin hadn't stopped going to the theatre together with his spouse, then one other man wouldn't have had the opportunity to flirt along with her, and become her lover. In each different approach, other than the theatre, and later the jewellery, M. Lantin's wife devoted herself to him. In paragraph five, it says that "It will be unimaginable to conceive of any consideration, tenderness, playful caress which she did not lavish upon her husband..." She was in love as well as loving her husband. She devoted herself to him, aside from her time at the theatre. So, if M. Lantin had been on the theatre together with his spouse, then his very presence would have stopped any affairs, if only because his wife's consideration would have been on him or on the theatre, not one other man. (Intermission would have been long enough for anybody to get it on! To not mention whereas M. Lantin was at work.)

And then in fact, there may be the jewelry itself. The truth that the jewellery is real, while she had been performing prefer it was fake. Even as far as to let the light catch the crystal, and say, "Now, look at them - see how properly the work was done. You would swear it was real jewelry.", when he would scold her for carrying the jewelry instead of being "adorned with one's pure magnificence and grace." I''m certain she had fun dressing her husband within the jewellery and laughing at him carrying her lover's gifts.

Then when she died, and M. Lantin discovered that the jewellery was real. The pearl jewelry sets that the spouse's lovers gave her paid for M. Lantin debauchery. After he realized he was rich, M. Lantin forgot all about his wife's affairs, and deluded himself that every one was okay as long as he was rich. So much so, that six months after his spouse died, he remarried to an excellent upstanding lady that made his life miserable.

That is the ultimate irony of this story and in life. That we are happiest having fun and never worrying about what we do or who we're doing it with. That we giggle, play, and revel in life to the fullest whenever and wherever we find ourselves. And when we confine ourselves to a sure ethical customary with no room for change, understanding, or at least the power to conform to disagree; we find yourself making our lives and the lives of everybody round us miserable. That is the last word irony of life!
