What is the theme of "The Bet" by Anton Chekhov?

Answer

Anton Chekhov's short story, 'The Bet,' works with the contrast between materialism and intellectual richness. The work reveals how intellect, knowledge, and culture have weightier merits than material greed. It has also been suggested that he is showing the benefits of the death penalty over the solitude and isolation of life imprisonment. Yet, it would also appear that he is revealing the benefits of solitude in leading towards a revelation that culture has more richness than greed.
