The element of a secret


Secrecy was a major theme through the first few chapters of the novel. The painter even stated the he never knows where where his wife is and she never knows where he is. He uses this to keep things exciteing becase the whole idea of marrage must be boring and dull. Also the theme of secrecy was used largely in the drawing and why he wouldn’t put it in an art show. To keep ones feeling and thoughts bottled up and hidden makes things more things more exciting yes becase you have the element of the unknown, but is it a just purpose when your never completly honest with anyone. Honestly he is losing both fame for not showing the painting and losing out of what is supposed to be his greatest relationship by not being completly honest in his marrage. The secrecy is a sick tool to keep life exciting with the tradeoff of honesty.
