This hurts her but it is necessary.
The theme of the looking glass is that people should always care more about others than themselves. Nellie displayed this in that she was concerned about her husband dying.
The Tone of "The Looking Glass" is depressing and sad throughout the story.
This short story is sad because it's about a lady name Nellie who dreams of having the husband of her dreams, and how when she finally fines the husband of her dreams and then how she dreams of him dying.
