Everyone has had those moments where you just sit and dream about how much better your life would be if you were elsewhere. That was the case for Mme. Loisel in “The Necklace” by Guy De Maupassant. Every single day she longed for a better life, a better house, better clothing, and a better income. She felt like she deserved all of those great things in life. However, one day Mme. Loisel was going to find out that everything she wanted wasn’t as great as she thought it to be. Mme. Loisel was a very pretty woman and she thought she deserved better than what she was given in life and wanted everything that would make her above everyone else. Mathilde, for some reason thought her life was dreadful and there was nothing you could do to change …show more content…

Mme. Loisel was surprisingly not excited at all. She had finally gotten something she only could have dream about before, and now she was contradicting herself. It seems like the author included this to show that once she got what she wanted, she still wasn’t happy. Secondly, Mathilde had realized that she had nothing to wear to this event, life had gotten even worse for her now. Her husband decided they were going to attend. Once the outfit was purchased, she still wasn’t pleased. Mme. Loisel had no jewels to go along with her outfit. Anew, her husband came up with the idea to have her ask one of her dear friends if she could borrow a necklace. As the party ensued, Mme. Loisel was the center of attention; her dreams were being fulfilled. As they were leaving the party, the author includes, “He threw her over his shoulders the wraps that he had brought for going home, modest garments of everyday life whose shabbiness clashed with the stylishness of her evening clothes. She felt this and longed to escape, unseen by the other women who were draped in expensive furs” (Maupassant 4). This is demonstrating that once again she got everything she wanted, but there was a setback. Nothing was ever going to be exactly what Mme. Loisel wanted. All of this is clearly showing that everything wanted in life isn’t going to be as great as it’s thought to
