The theme of the Essay "The Garden Party" is humanism and human hypocrisy as a person dies just opposite the mansion and inside the mansion a party is being organised. when the family comes to know about it none but one think about canceliing the party  and only the left over food is sent to the deceased's family. The story also shows a stark divide between the rich and the poor.
