In the short story "The Necklace" by Guy De Maupassant, the setting was in the late 1800's in Paris when social class mattered. I know this because Madame Loisel and her husband got invited to a grand party but she she refused to go because she didn't have the right dress and the people would have thought she didn't belong. Her said "what is the matter with you? Why don't you want to go to this party?" Loisel responded with, "Nothing. Only i haven't a dress and so i can't go to this party." Another way i know the setting is because even after she got the dress she was still said and worried because she had no jewelry to wear tot he party. She said to her husband " I'm utterly Miserable at not having any jewels and not a single stone to wear." So that showed that even if she did have the right dress it meant nothing with out the jewels, because that's what the people in the higher class wore. Then her husband suggested she go to he friend Madame Forestier to borrow some jewels. The last reason i know the setting is when she went to her friends house to borrow some of her jewels, it took along time to find the perfect piece of jewelry to wear.That showed you just how much she cared to fit in for this party.
Nothing. Only i haven't a dress & so i cant go to the party.
Loisel finds out that her & Monsieur have been invited to a party but she doesnt want to go because she has nothing to wear.
Whats the matter with you?!
Days had passed Loisel had gotten the dress but she felt something was missing.
Go & see Madame Forestier & ask her to lend you some jewlery.
I'm utterly miserable at not having any jewels,not a single stone,to wear.
may i borrow this?
As Loisel was looking through her friends jewlery she found the most amamzing necklace in a black box
