Storyboard Text

  • Mme. Loisel was of middle class. That meant she was married to a clerk and didn't have many expensive stuff. She was constantly unhappy with her life.
  • Mme. Loisel and her husband were invited to a fancy party in a mansion, but she didn't have anything to wear to the party. She made her husband by her a new dress.
  • She then didn't have any great jewelry to go with the dress, so she borrowed a very expensive looking diamond necklace from her friend. She had a great time at the party and felt like a first class woman.
  • "She grieved over the shabbiness of her apartment, the dinginess of the walls, the worn-out appearance of the chairs, the ugliness of the draperies" (Maupassant 351).
  • When they both got home from the party, Mme. Loisel notices she lost the necklace. They searched everywhere, but couldn't find it. They bought a new one for 34 thousand francs and give it to the friend.
  • "She had no evening clothes, no jewels, nothing. But those were the things she wanted; she felt that was the kind of life for her. She so much longed to please, be envied, be fascinating and sought after" (Maupassant 352).
  • Mme. Loisel and her husband spent ten years doing third men class work to pay off the necklace they lost and replaced. She lost her youth, but they finally paid it off.
  • "The day of the party arrived. Mme. Loisel was a sensation. She was the prettiest one there, fashionable, gracious, smiling, and wild with joy. All the men turned to look at her, ask who she was, begged to be introduced (Maupassant 354).
  • Ten years later Mme. Loisel ran into her friend she borrowed the necklace from and told her the story. Her friend then told her that the necklace was a fake and was at most 500 francs, not 34 thousand.
  • "She turned towards him despairingly, "I... I... I don't have Mme. Forestier's necklace." "What! You can't mean it! It's impossible!" They hunted through the folds of the dress, through the folds of the coat, in the pockets. They found nothing" (Maupassant 356).
  • "She learned to do the heavy housework, to preform the hateful duties of cooking...And this went on for ten years" (Maupassant 357).
  • "Mme. Forestier, quite overcome, clasped her by the hands. "Oh, my poor Mathilde. But mine was fake. Why, at most it was worth only five hundred francs!" (Maupassant 358).
