The three short stories present in The Suicide Club, although can be read as standalone pieces are woven to create a larger plot. The larger plot revolves around the work of Prince Florizel of Bohemia and Colonel Geraldine, his assistant and their quest to finally toppling the unnamed president of the Suicide Club. The main reason why they wish to destroy the mentioned organization is that it gives men with ways to escape their disastrous, dysfunctional and unhappy loves without the threat of over self-destruction. One of the underlying themes in Robert Louis Steven’s novel is the theme of loss of masculinity. As the novel progresses, it is implied that the members of the club are all bachelors whose sexualities are actually questionable and as result are doomed for extinction.
