Transcript of Copy of The Necklace
Gustave Falubert-taught him the craft of writing
The most successful short story writer of his day
Close observer of Human Life
Pessimistic Author Initial Situation: "Miserable Mathilde" At the beginning of the story, essentially nothing happens. The narrator's interested ion telling us about Mathilde. We learn about her back- story, her character, and her unhappiness with her mediocre life. Monsier Loisel
is a kind man who wants to make his wife happy. Mathilde’s husband. Monsieur Loisel is content with the small pleasures of his life but does his best to appease Mathilde’s demands and assuage her complaints. He loves Mathilde immensely but does not truly understand her, and he seems to underestimate the depth of her unhappiness. When Mathilde loses the necklace, Monsieur Loisel sacrifices his own future to help her repay the debt. He pays dearly for something he had never wanted in the first place. Characters Conflict: It's a party and I'll cry If I want to...
The action proper begins when M. Loisel comes home with the invitation to the fabulous ball and Mathilde reacts by having a fit. Mow we have a specific problem: Mathilde now has the best opportunity she's ever had to have a taste of the high life, but she has nothing to wear. Complication: Diamonds are this girl's best friend
Mathilde solves the first problem when her husband gives her money for a dress. But then she runs into a second problem: she's needs to have some jewels. Luckily, her friend Mme. Forestier is able to provide her with a fabulous diamond necklace. But now Mathilde's been entrusted with something expensive that belongs to someone else and we have the potential for disaster. It's true that the complication is often when things "get worse," and that doesn't really happen here (for that, we have to wait for the climax). In fact, after borrowing the necklace, Mathilde has the time of her life. But it's when she borrows the necklace that the possibility opens up for something really bad to happen…and it does.
CLIMAX: The necklace is missing!
Mathilde's discovery is the most exciting and dramatic moment in the story (until that crazy twist in the last line). It's also the turning point in the plot. Before, the story was a build-up to Mathilde's one glorious night with the rich and famous. Now it transitions into a desperate search. We have a feeling things are not going to end well. SUSPENSE: Diamond's when lost, are a girl's worst nightmare DENOUEMENT:

This story was published in a French newspaper in 1884. It was made into a television series in 1986 and directed by Shyam Benegal. The story was very popular in France around 1887 Madame Forestier
Mathilde’s wealthy friend. Madame Forestier treats Mathilde kindly, but Mathilde is bitterly jealous of Madame Forestier’s wealth, and the kindness pains her. Madame Forestier lends Mathilde the necklace for the party and does not inspect it when Mathilde returns it. She is horrified to realize that Mathilde has wasted her life trying to pay for a replacement necklace, when the original necklace had actually been worth nothing. Madame Mathilde Loisel
The protagonist of the story. Mathilde has been blessed with physical beauty but not with the affluent lifestyle she yearns for, and she feels deeply discontented with her lot in life. When she prepares to attend a fancy party, she borrows a diamond necklace from her friend Madame Forestier, then loses the necklace and must work for ten years to pay off a replacement. Her one night of radiance cost her and Monsieur Loisel any chance for future happiness.
The auther's purpose is to teach the reader that lieing is not the answer and just creates more problems. He does this by showing the reader that because Mathilde lied to Madame Forestier she created an even bigger problem for herself. Guy de Maupassant, the author of the necklace Facts CONCLUSION:
