Freytag's Plot Diagram of The Necklace by Guy De Maupassant
Transcript of Freytag's Plot Diagram of The Necklace by Guy De Maupassant
Mathilde Loisel is not happy with her life at all, She thinks that she has it rough and she believes she lives in poverty because all she does is want. Her husband, Monsieur Loisel tries his best to provide for his wife and tries to give her everything she wants, but she is never satisfied.
Monsieur Loisel brings home an invitation to a ball at a glorious castle, but much to the his surprise Mathilde is upset about it because she doesn't have any dress and a nice piece of jewelry to wear to the party. Monsieur Loisel suggests that she borrow some jewelry from her rich friend, which she does, borrowing a rather expensive necklace.
When Mathilde and Monsieur Loisel come home they discover that the necklace is missing.
At the end of ten years, the woman has found a new sense of pride, having had to work to pay off the debt. She runs into her rich friend and tells her exactly what happened ten years before. Her friend tells Mathilde the original necklace was just a fake.
The couple goes out and finds a necklace that is identical to the lost one. Unfortunately, it cost over 30 thousand franks. They buy it, borrowing money from every conceivable source, and going into debt. The woman returns the duplicate to her friend who does not notice the switch. They then spend the next 10 years paying back the loans.
