The New York Times 30 Dec. Louisiana State University Press, World Literature Criticism Supplement , Vol. Maupassant succeeded in being a writer "who had entered into himself and looked out upon life through his own being and with his own eyes," according to Kate Chopin He wrote "realistic fiction" and greatly influences writers still Charters, "Brief History" The meaning of " The Necklace " is developed through the depiction of the characters and the plot of the story.
I found that the theme of "The Necklace" exhibits the importance of honesty and being happy with who you are. It shows that things are not always what they seem, material things do not define the person and that money cannot solve all problems and may in fact create them. Donald Adamson describes the main character, Mathilde, as a "poor but an honest woman," I disagree with his opinion. This conflict within Mathilde drives her throughout the story.
Her dedicated husband, M. Loisel, is content with their life and wishes to make her happy despite everything he must endure. After obtaining an invitation to a ball that was an "awful trouble to get," he eagerly takes it home to his wife who is ungrateful because she does not feel that she has anything suitable to wear The day of the ball proved to be everything Mathilde imagined, but it all ends when she loses the necklace. Loisel and Mathilde find a replacement necklace, they spend "ten years in grinding poverty until they finally paid off their debt," only to discover that the necklace was not a diamond necklace but just "mere costume jewellery" Adamson.
Charters defines plot as the "sequence of events in a story and their relation to one another as they develop and usually resolve a conflict" "Elements" In the exposition of "The Necklace," Maupassant provides a detailed "character portrait" of Mathilde and offers some important details about M.
It is obvious that conflict exists inside of Mathilde. She feels she is too good for the life she leads. She is unhappy with who she is and dreams of being someone else.
On the contrary, M. Loisel is happy and satisfied to come home to his wife who prepares him an "economical but tasty meal" Smith. The rising action of the plot begins when M.
Loisel presents the invitation to Mathilde. This presentation only aggravates the conflict that exists within Mathilde and she cannot imagine going to the ball in any of her old dresses. Mathilde sheds two pitiful tears and M. Loisel "quickly decides to sacrifice his savings" so that she may purchase a new dress Smith.
Mathilde is not satisfied with just a new dress! She believes it would be a disgrace to show up at the ball without jewelry. She must not "look poor among other women who are rich" Maupassant So she borrows a "superb necklace of diamonds" from Mme. In this passage Maupassant convinces the reader that the necklace is real diamonds; "he misleads the reader into believing that the necklace really is valuable" Adamson. This creates more excitement for the climax of the story when Mathilde loses the necklace on her way home from the ball.
Loisel responds by going to search for the necklace to no avail. He does not find the necklace and instructs Mathilde to lie to Mme. Forestier and tell her that she has broken the necklace and will need time to have it repaired. If Mathilde would have chosen to be honest at this point, Mme. Forestier would have told her that the necklace was only "paste…worth at most five hundred francs" Instead they find a suitable replacement necklace that costs thirty-six thousand francs. After one week M.
Loisel "had aged five years," and was forced to use his inheritance and borrow money "risking his signature without even knowing if he could meet it" to buy the replacement necklace Maupassant, "Necklace" Upon returning the necklace to her friend, Mathilde discovered the "horrible existence of the needy" They "dismissed their servant" and gave up their flat. Mathilde became a "woman of impoverished households - strong and hard and rough" She was forced to haggle and defend their "miserable money" It took them ten years to pay off all of their debts.
Mathilde was no longer pretty and charming, she now had "frowsy hair… and red hands" These trials and tribulations represent the falling action of the story, where the conflict is moving toward a resolution Charters, "Elements" Loisel, but I do not feel that her actions were heroic. She was just fulfilling the duties that were always expected of her, but that she felt she was too good for. I do not believe that dishonesty is a trait of a hero.
Perhaps if Mathilde would have been honest with Mme. Forestier from the beginning about losing the necklace, she would have explained that it was not real diamonds and they could have avoided all of the hardships they endured. Some may argue that Mathilde was heroic because she took responsibility for her mistake, gave up her lifestyle and worked to repay the debt.
It was admirable that she did not expect her husband to bear the burden alone. The conclusion of "The Necklace" undoubtedly contains an element of surprise. Mathilde discovers that the necklace was not made of diamonds, but imitation gems. This devastating discovery leaves many unanswered questions. She is a round character capable of choosing alternative responses to the situations presented to her Charters, "Elements" I believe Mathilde is both a dynamic and a static character.
She is dynamic because she does undergo a significant change and takes on the duties of a poverty stricken housewife. Yet she remains static in that she is still not content with her life and dreams of that "gay evening long ago, of that ball where she had been so beautiful" Maupassant, "Necklace" Loisel is also a round character, the "play and pull of his actions and responses to situations" could be observed throughout the story Charters, "Elements" When Mathilde is unhappy with the invitation to the ball he offers to buy her a new dress.
When she wants jewelry he recommends borrowing from Mme. Forestier and when she loses the necklace he collects the money to replace it. Loisel does experience some change, he is a static character. I believe he is content and happy with his life throughout the story.
He continues to work hard and stays dedicated to Mathilde. The themes of "The Necklace" are evident throughout the plot of the story. If only Mathilde would have been honest with Mme. Forestier and happy with who she was, she could have prevented the whole ordeal.
Her misfortune proves to the reader that honesty is the best choice. Maupassant warns the reader of the afflictions that vanity may cause. There was no need for Mathilde to wear a diamond necklace; she was too concerned about what others would think of her.
The fake diamond necklace proves that things are not always what they seem, although Mme. Forestier appeared to be rich, she chose or may have only been able to afford costume jewelry. I believe "The Necklace" serves as a reminder of the importance of being happy and proud of who we are regardless of the amount of material things or money that we possess.
Gale Literature Resource Center. Agatucci Literary Analysis Paper 4 November A Cure for Temporary Depression. Agatucci Literary Analysis Paper 27 November To complete a puzzle properly each and every piece must be accounted for; otherwise the final product is never comprehensive.
A puzzle with missing pieces is very much like a story with missing elements. Every element plays an important role in the meaning and the integrity of the story. Clearly, with a puzzle there are pieces that are more consequential if missing than others. Just like a puzzle there are significant elements in a story that make a big difference.
If such elements are removed some of the realistic aspects a story needs for readers to be able to relate are missing as well. Although there are many elements that go into a story there are two that are profoundly important to have in a story. These two elements are recognized as the plot and characters. The conflict within the story is profoundly important to how the plot is going to be laid out since the plot itself is usually impacted by the conflict throughout the story.
Loisel is a pretty woman who longs for something more than she has and she pays for this throughout the story Maupassant This internal conflict expands throughout the entire story.
Loisel wants to be richer but she is married to a clerk and is far from rich Maupassant This first conflict illustrated by Maupassant drives the story very well. This conflict seems to be more external, because it is not a conflict Mme. Loisel has been struggling with internally for years.
However, when the dinner invitation is presented another conflict is introduced. Loisel wants to attend this elaborate dinner, but not unless she can be in the most magnificent clothing and jewelry Maupassant This point is well illustrated when Mme.
Continuously after these two conflicts are introduced, she is introduced to more that get her into trouble. Within the plot there are components that are critically important when exploring a story. Loisel is taking place. At this point the author gives only a brief background of the past and present dimensions of her life Maupassant The climax is this particular story would surely be when Mme. Loisel discovers her necklace as missing Maupassant Forestier on the street and confronts her. Once the conclusion sets in and ties together all the loose strings, the reader get the surprise that the necklace was fake the entire time Maupassant As one can see the plot plays a huge role in the development of a short story.
Another important aspect of developing a short story is the character developed in the context of the story. It is important that characters be realistic in any story. A static character is one that does not change throughout the story, while a dynamic character changes. Loisel is both a static and dynamic character. Loisel changes when the necklace disappears making her dynamic.
This is true in the beginning she is from lower middle class where she has a comfortable home and servants Maupassant However, when the necklace disappears and must be replaced, she is forced to release her servants and change her lodging in order to pay off her debts. This change in Mme. Loisel is permanent thus making her a dynamic character Maupassant It is also easy for one to see Mme.
Loisel as a static character also. This is due to the fact that Mme. Loisel never really changes in some aspects. Throughout the entire story she is envious of other people. One can see this at the beginning of the story with the introduction of the invitation. At this point Mme. Loisel insists on an expensive dress and necklace Maupassant It can also be seen at the end of the story when Mme. Loisel sees her friend Jeanne again for the first time in awhile and is still envious of her wealth and beauty.
This aspect of Mme. The plot helps to set the conflict, which in turn drives the plot as well as characters actions and motives. As an author, having the ability to integrate such important elements of a story successfully can be very difficult.
Maupassant was later taught how to write by a relative of the name Gustave Flaubert. It seemed that Maupassant was not a natural talent when it came to writing, which makes his writing meaningful because he must have struggled to write well and overcame the challenge. Maupassant writings seem to be packed with morals and hidden messages possibly due to lessons installed by Flaubert.
Another important lesson Flaubert tried to install in his pupil was to look at everything within the context of any literary work and discover the one component that every other reader has missed.
The lessons installed in Maupassant by Flaubert may be a large factor in the way he wrote. Maupassant plays close attention to physical and mental details. This period of literature involved real people with everyday events in which ordinary people could relate.
Also this period places a large importance on classes and relationships between upper and lower classes, which is what Maupassant does extremely well Agatucci 3. Chopin believes that his writings do not speak to everyone as a group but to each reader individually, by what the reader sees and hears within the pages Chopin Also she sees him as secretly telling hints of his stories within the pages.
Maupassant does not just come out and explain the important hidden messages within his stories; he expresses them through the feelings each reader experiences while reading his literature Chopin It takes many special components to write a story. Maupassant had the opportunity to show his readers the elegance of his writing.
Maupassant had a gift at combining elements of fiction like characters and plot. Through the combination of his history, era and hard work he developed stories literature readers could enjoy and relate to for generations. Works Cited to come.
