Storyboard Text

  • The Necklace By: Guy de Maupassant Comic By: Marin McCulla
  • Madame Loisel lived in France during the late 1800s with her husband, Mr. Loisel.
  • I told you that I do not want to go.
  • I thought that you would be thrilled to go to the ball.
  • Oh no! I lost the necklace.
  • You did what?
  • Madame Loisel grew up in a wealthy family, but she married a middle class family. She is used to getting everything that she desires and she is constantly asking her husband for him to buy her things.
  • Do we have to buy the replacement necklace? It's 36,000 francs.
  • It's our only option.
  • Part of the rising action was Mr. Loisel giving Madame Loisel the invitation to the ball, but Madame Loisel was not happy with the invitation because she had nothing to wear to the ball. Mr. Loisel ended up giving Madame Loisel 400 pounds to buy a dress.
  • You mean to tell me that that necklace was worth 500 francs. We paid 36,000 for that one around your neck.
  • That necklace was worth at most 500 francs.
  • In the climax of the story, Madame Loisel loses the necklace at the ball. They both have no idea where she could have lost and make any effort they can to find it.
  • In the falling action, Madame Loisel and Mr. Loisel buy a necklace that looks exactly like the one they lost because they absolutely could not find the original necklace. The only problem is that it cost 36,000 francs. This was something that they did not have. The did everything they could to get the necklace and they did.
  • For the resolution to the story, the reader as well as Madame Loisel learned that the necklace she borrowed 10 years ago was only worth 500 francs, but the one they bought was worth 40,000 francs. This is when the story ended.
