One of the main themes in this book, The Bridge of San Luis Rey is the nature of love. Wilder deftly dissects it, and we examine it in the many ways love manifests itself. We’ve seen it in the parent-child relationship, and the sibling relationship. We’ve also seen it in the romantic relationship, with Camilla Perichole and the brothers Manuel and Esteban. Today we’ll examine the surrogate parent relationship. Afterwards, we’ll conclude our journey.


And now, The Bridge of San Luis Rey, Part 3 of 3, by Thornton Wilder
