After Victor’s death, the creature reveals his feelings about his actions and how they affected Victor. “But it is true that I am a wretch. I have murdered the lovely and the helpless; I have strangled the innocent as they slept and grasped to death his throat who never injured me or any other living thing. I have devoted my creator, the select specimen of all that is worthy of love and admiration among men, to misery; I have pursued him even to that irremediable ruin. There he lies, white and cold in death.

I grew up on fairy tales. I was told stories, poems, shown movies and sung lullabies. Fairy tales have been a big part of my life so far, and I hope that they will continue in this way.

Guy de Maupassant’s “The Necklace” is a twisted and broken fairytale. * Although this short story does embody some elements of fantasy, there is not merely enough evidence to support the claim that it is in fact a “ modern fairytale.” Fairytales often include themes such as enchantment, which is shown when the main character dreams, but is this really such an enchanting thing? Another theme found in fairytales is an encounter with the main struggle, in “The Necklace,” the main character also comes to face with a challenge, but this challenge does not accurately fit the characteristics of an encounter. A third example of an element of a fairytale is the presence of a weak male figure. In this case, there is a weak man but he does not remain weak throughout the story.

In her article, Panttaja discusses how Cinderella succeeds against all odds. Panttaja states, “Cinderella succeeds not because she is more patient or virtuous than her stepfamily but because she is craftier, willing to employ powerful magic to defeat the forces arrayed against her.” In the Grimms’ version, on Cinderella’s mother's’ deathbed, she gives advice and says, “ Dear child, be good and pious. Then the dear Lord shall always assist you, and I shall look down from heaven and take care of you.” This already seems like a very doubtful promise, although it is good advice. The mother/daughter theme of Cinderella stories are a key part of the storyline, but at every turn, the mother is there with her magical power, waiting. Cinderella’s loyalty to her mother does not fade, but her mother's magical influence has been an ever so growing part of her life.
