A bit out of the ordinary…” As the story unfolded my feelings of sympathy for Eva grew stronger and stronger. This is surprising as she does not appear in the play and is in fact dead before the play begins. The Inspector starts his inquiry by questioning Mr. Birling who is the owner of a large company, which employs several hundred young girls. Mr. Birling describes Eva who was one of his employees as “a lively good-looking girl-country bred” he continues to say that she had been working for the company for over a year and that she was an excellent worker. Mr. Birling describes Eva and some of her work colleagues as being “rather restless” after the summer vacation; this resulted in them demanding a pay rise of an increase from twenty-two and six to twenty five shillings a week.

They end up having to work for ten years to pay off this debt. All of Mme.
Howeve... ... middle of paper ... ...her dreamy memories, which made the reader felt sympathetic and pity. In the end, Guy de Maupassant surprised the readers by revealing the truth was that the necklace was imitated and only cost for five hundred francs. Meaning to say Mathilde Loisel lost her ten years sacrifice for nothing. Isn’t it a tragic to live ten years under a painful lie? Her fate was so cruel and destroyed everything.
After going to the jeweler to get it replaced, they knew that they would be in debt for a long time. "Loisel possessed 18 thousand fiancés which his father left him and he had to borrow the rest" (Maupassant, 2004, p. 349). For the necklace cost 44 thousand fiancés. Ten years they spent repaying back the money that they borrowed. In "Hills Like White Elephants" the couple faces a crisis where the wife is sick.
They finally got enough money to buy the necklace. And Madame Loisel gave the necklace to Mrs. Forestier. Mrs. Forestier was upset that Madame Loisel returned her necklace in late. Mrs. Forestier had the right to be upset because she agreed to lend her necklace to her friend and she had returned it weeks
He borrowed “asking a thousand franc from one , five hundred from another” (Maupassant 3) to spend the next ten years of his and Mathilde Loisel life to repay the thirty thousand to everyone they have had borrowed from. After completing the long and dreadful ten years of hard labor Mathilde Loisel quiensidently ran into Mme.Forester to only find out that the necklace she had worn that night was fake and worthless. Being a female that has absolutely no authority over her assets and has no say what so ever in where the are placed thus meaning that she is practically worthless. Realizing all of this it is no longer astonishing that Mr.Loisel went out of his way to borrow 36 thousand francs in loans without the permission from his wife Mrs.Losiel. She understand the fact that they would have to repay these outstanding loans and had spent the next ten years of her youthfull life paying back all the money that was owed.
