‘She danced madly, wildly, drunk with pleasure, giving no thought to anything in the triumph of her beauty, the pride of her success…’ (pg 193). This is a form of dramatic irony because Guy explains earlier that Mme. Loisel is just a middle class woman who dreams of a wealthy life, but she is just alluding herself as a luxurious woman. Another example of irony in the story is when Madame found out that the necklace was paste. On page 196, Mme.
The use of Irony is seen in both short stories representing the constriction in marriage.

Loisel had this desire to live a lifestyle that was way beyond her means. After purchasing a beautiful gown worth 400 franks Mathilde Loisel came to the realization that she had no jewelry to go along with the dress. Her husband suggested “You will wear some natural flowers” and she replied “ No; there is nothing more humiliating than to look poor among a lot of rich women” (Maupassant 2).
Every woman would want to be Lady Marguerite Blakeney, née St Just. Having recently made her debut at the Comedie Francois, Marguerite married Sir Percy Blakeney alias the Scarlet Pimpernel. Charming, clever, beautiful, with childlike eyes and a delicate face, Marguerite captures everyone’s attention. Yet Marguerite is portrayed as a stereotypical woman who is weak, impulsive, and whose identity revolves around her husband. It is quite ridiculous how much Marguerite’s happiness lies in her husband Sir Percy Blakeney alias the Scarlet Pimpernel.
They span the lifestyles of those in the performing arts. The cinematography in both of the films was brilliantly done and well beyond its time, especially for Kiss Me, Kate. The costume design aided very much in the sexuality of the story, using outfits to show how modest a character was, or simply whether she was portraying a man at that time or not. The film Victor/Victoria begins beautifully. In Paris, early 1930’s, a trained coloratura opera soprano, Victoria Grant, can't get a job as a performer and is broke beyond reason.
Maupassant introduces prostitution into great literature with Bel-Ami. In La Belle Epoque, these women were seen as status symbols since it was only the wealthy that could afford their company. In Bel-Ami, Georges Duroy and Charles Forestier go to the Folies-Bergere, a Paris nightclub. Forestier, a prominent editor at La Vie francaise, is given special treatmenta free box in the dancehall. Thus, the combination of sex and status worked both ways: being seen with a prostitute signified wealth, and being of high status gave you sexual benefits.

Since the very day of her birth, Mathidle has constantly chased after the affluent existence as she fantasizes that women like her friend, Madam Forestier, relish. Through her husband’s invitation to the minister’s gala, she adorns herself in a fine dress and a priceless diamond necklace, and transforms her into a beautiful envied person far from her usual impoverished disposition.

When Daisy cried at the sight of the shirts, it symbolized her superficial- ness, as well as her materialistic life. Gatsby's shirts were real and authentic and Daisy was amazed and speechless at the thought of how much they must be worth. This need of Gatsby's to impress became a "sickness that drives young men to think that riches can obliterate the past and capture the hearts of the girls of their dreams" (Dictionary of Literary Biography 7). Throughout the entire novel Daisy is continuously seeking money and wealth. When people think of daisy flowers, the colors yellow, green and white come to mind.
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.

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.
