In conclusion, another theme can be extracted from this book. That theme would be morality. Poor morals were harbored in much of this book and in most Mrs. Pontellierís actions and emotions. A mentality of despair appears in this book, it is sad to see a good life, such as Mrs. Pontellierís, be spoiled by a insatiable need to do only what made her feel happy.
