H.G. Wells has written many science fiction stories. in "the moonlight fable" the suit symbolises the desires of the little man.the little man wants to wear the suit without guards but he is not allowed to do so. first he listens the restrictions but at last he does whatever his heart says to him. he fulfills his desire and wears a suit and does not care for it because he thinks it is all the part of wearing the suit. at the end he dies because he no more has desires to fulfill and so happily he dies.
