Literary Devices of The Necklace
Transcript of Literary Devices of The Necklace
An example of foreshadowing in The Necklace would be when the jeweler says,"I didn't sell that necklace madame"(Maupassant 663).This shows that Madame Forestier didn't even buy a real diamond necklace.
by Guy de Maupassant

An example of a hyperbole would be when madame Loisel explains that she bought a new necklace,"You can imagine that wasn't easy for us who had nothing"(Maupassant 665). This is a hyperbole because she obviously didn't have nothing especially because she bought a new, real, diamond necklace.
The theme of this story would be, true love has no price. Mr Loisel arranged the ball for his wife to make her realize that their love could make it so that she doesn't need fancy necklaces or dances but realize that their true love could make her the wealthiest woman she could ever hope to be.
Irony in this story would be when everyone at the dance expected her to be rich with her wearing a diamond necklace, but Madame Loisel took ten years to buy a real diamond necklace after she lost Madame Forestier's beautiful fake necklace which really means her night of riches and luxury were actually an illusion.
An example of symbolism in this story would be the fake diamond necklace itself because it symbolized Madame Loisel's luxury life as being fake because she was really poor and borrowed the fake necklace from Madame Forestier.
