ABSTRACT
This study investigates the tropical and esthetic decoration in the French writer, Bernardin's novel Paul and Virginie, where in its first part the outer decoration is discussed with relation to the nature, and the isolated society with its effect on the sales of the novel. The novel takes place on a tropical island, with spectacular views, water, birds and flowers which turn it into a small paradise. As for the isolated society, Paul and Virginie's families formed a simple ideal society which ignores fortune and status. A brief comparison between an urban and rural society is dealt with in the second part of this study .The interior decoration whose reflections on the external decoration were very clear, one can notice that love, death, religion, poise, providence and other aspects were the esthetic decoration of this novel. In both parts, bright colors and brilliant sounds completed the great symphony of nature which brought out the popularity of this novel.
