  • The Necklace Story by: Guy de Maupassant Storyboard by Zeynep Atalay
  • I can't go to this party! I have no fine dress.
  • How much will a simple dress cost? I'll give you the money.
  • Set in Paris, France. Matilde is a charming young woman who dreams of a luxurious lifestyle far beyond her reach. She did not have enough money to afford a better life.
  • Would you really let me borrow this?
  • Of course, Matilde.
  • She had no way of meeting a rich and distinguished man so, she married Mr. Loisel. One day, Mr. Loisel who works as a clerk at the Department of Education comes home with an invitation which he begged the Minister of Education for the evening out invitation. He hopes it will bring Mathilde delight. 
  • However, Mathilde is furious because she has nothing fancy to wear so she frowned and tossed the invitation to the table.
  • Mathilde finds a lovely dress for just under 400 Francs and buys a new gown with the money his husband lended.  Matilde is not satisfied until she asks a wealthy friend for a necklace to go along with the fine gown.
  • The day of the party came and Mrs. Loisel was the prettiest women there. Everybody noticed and admired her. Mathilde and her husband have a great, fun time at the party. When the party is over, Mathilde and her husband take a cab home because the weather was chilly and they were exhausted.
