  • The Necklace 
  • By Guy De Maupassant Mia Aponte-Cruz P1
  • "What do you wish me to do with that?"
  • "Why my dear I thought you would be glad"
  • How stupid you are! Go look up your friend, Madame Forestier and ask her to lend you some jewels.
  • "What do you wish me to put on my back??"
  • The Necklace by Guy De Maupassant  Mia Aponte-Cruz: Period 1
  • Thank God Madame Forestier lent me this!
  • "She had no gowns, no jewels, nothing. And she loved nothing but that.But one day her husband reached home with a triumphant air and holding a large envelope in his hand. Instead of being delighted as her husband had hoped, she threw the invitation on the table scornfully, muttering," What do you wish me to do with that?"P4-P8
  • "She looked at him with an irritated glance and said impatiently: "And what do you wish me to put on my back?" He  had not thought of that. He stammered. "I don't know exactly, but I think I could manage with 400 francs", said Mathilde...The day of the ball drew near and Madame Loisel seemed sad, uneasy and anxious. "It annoys me not to have a single piece of jewelry...I shall look poverty-stricken."  P9-P32
  • Jewels
  • "Will you lend me this, only this?" "Why, yes, certainly." The night of the ball arrived. Madame Loisel was a great success. She was prettier than every other woman present.. She left the ball about four o'clock in the morning .He {her husband} threw over her shoulders the wraps he had brought, the modest wraps of common life, the poverty of which contrasted with the elegance of the ball dress. She felt this and wished to escape so as not to be remarked by the other women, who were enveloping themselves in costly furs. P31-P37
  • "She removed her wraps before the mirror so as to see herself once more in all her glory. But suddenly she uttered a cry. She no longer had the necklace around her neck. "What is the matter with you?" demanded her husband. "I have lost Madame Forestier's necklace..."They looked among the folds of her skirt, of her cloak,.. everywhere, but did not find it."I shall go back on foot," said he, "over the whole route, to see whether I can find it.Her husband returned about seven o'clock. He had found nothing." P42-P54
  • "You must write to your friend," said he, "that you have broken the clasp of her necklace and that you are having it mended. That will give us time to turn round."They found, in a shop at the Palais Royal, a string of diamonds that seemed to them exactly like the one they had lost. It was worth forty thousand francs. They could have it for thirty-six.So they begged the jeweler not to sell it for three days yet. And they made a bargain that he should buy it back for thirty-four thousand francs, in case they should find the lost necklace before the end of February. That dreadful debt must be paid. She would pay it." P59-P70
