Together the two look up the the high class and luxury lifestyle with beliefs that they deserve to be apart of it.
Madame Loisel, a beautiful woman, lives in a wonderful home with all the necessary supplies needed to live. However, she is very unhappy with her life. She feels she deserves a much more expensive and materialistic life than what she has. After pitying herself for not being the richest of her friends, she goes out and borrows a beautiful necklace from an ally. But as she misplaces the closest thing she has to the life she dreams of and not telling her friend about the mishap, she could have set herself aside from ten years of work.
Born in a family of artisans, she wasn’t rich, but beautiful and glamor. But she never feel satisfied of what she had and never stop dreaming to have more, to live a luxury life with expensive homes and glittering dresses, and eventually paid hard for her nonsense dreams. In “The Necklace”, Guy de Maupassant uses third person limited narration to show how Mathilde Loisel changes in how she looks and acts; However, she does not fully change in what she says or how she thinks. Throughout the story, the third person limited narrator focuses on Mathilde’s evolving in her actions. Madame Mathilde Loisel, a charming but selfish lady, never feel satisfied with her wants.
When she could have been happy with her situation in life, instead she would dream of a grand home and wealthy, dignified friends. When she borrowed a diamond necklace from a friend and lost it at an elegant party, she brought downfall to her husband and herself. Not only does Guy de Maupassant use the necklace as a vehicle for the hard times that the Loisels had to endure, but he also uses it as a symbol to teach a lesson about the repercussions of greed, ruin, and regret. To begin with, Maupassant displayed the necklace as everything that Mathilde had ever desired. The necklace was “…superb…and [Mathilde’s] heart throbbed with desire for it” (Maupassant 6).
She was lucky enough to even own a home and a husband who supports her (The Necklace). It is obvious that she does not accept her husband because she constantly fantasize about rich men wanting to please her at a formal party in her “imaginary” house (The Necklace). Mister Monsieur Loisel, tried very hard to please his beloved wife (The Necklace... ... middle of paper ... ...ected her husband, herself, and her friend, Madame Forestier. She should understand that wonderful things would not last forever, but how would her life be if she was not materialistic? Maybe, when her husband comes home from work she would welcome him with open arms.
In “The Necklace” Guy De Maupassant writes a story about a woman and her husband and how a necklace changed their lives. The story begins with Maupassant describing Mathilde Loisel as a woman that was born into the wrong path of life due to her characteristics. Mathilde liked all the aspects of a rich lifestyle but she could not partake in these aspects because she was poor. She spent most of her time visualizing herself with a higher social status and interacting the things that came with it. One day her husband, Mister Loisel, was able to procure for her an invitation to a ball at a palace.
Loisel may have never relinquished the lofty (but unrealistic and shallow) expectations she had of herself and her husband. Most likely, she would have spent the rest of her life as an unhappy, discontented woman. Instead, Mme. Loisel receives a chance to begin again with a clean slate and a more positive attitude. Finally, Mme.
She and her husband lead a very plain life, and she always dreams of having the luxurious life: a beautiful house, elegant dresses, expensive jewels, gourmet food, and more. Her husband has accepted their status, and works hard to please Mathilde. Mrs. Forrestier, a rich friend of Mathilde's, lends her a diamond necklace for a formal dinner party. When Mathilde loses the necklace on her night out the events turn sour and the couple begins to face a lifetime of suffering. When Mr. Loisel brings Mathilde an invitation to a dinner party, instead of being excited about the elegant evening, Mathilde is upset because she has no elegant dresses.
As a character in the writing who was self-absorbed into looking wealthy because the community around her was, and she did everything she could to fit in with the expectations society was given to her. With a loving husband that found tickets to go to a ball, she continued to be bitter about her wealth; and she demanded for money for an expensive dress and a necklace so she went to a friend’s house to seek for a necklace to borrow (Maupassant, 1884, p. 2). Guy de Maupassant (1884) wrote, "All of a sudden she discovered, in a black satin box, a superb necklace of diamonds; and her heart began to beat with an immoderate desire. Her hands trembled as she took it" (p. 3). This quote illustrated the enjoyment the women got out of seeing a diamond necklace and hailing it as if it was worth one million dollars.
She then, went to her friend house and told her friend her distress. Madame Frostier took out her black box full of jewels to choose from, but instead her heart pounded when she saw this beautiful diamond necklace. Her friend lend her the necklace.
