Her husband worked hard so she would not have to work as hard as some of the other women in her class. She was so upset about not being in the upper class that she caused the family ten years of hard work to pay for a necklace that in all actually was less valuable than she thought.

Kendall Smith Posted Date: October 11, 2018 10:35 PM Status: Published 1st conflict is human vs society Madame Loisel considered herself as poor simply because she was not rich. She was unhappy because she wanted to be rich and desired. Quote ' No; there is nothing more humiliating than looking poor in the middle of alot of rich women." ( Madame Loisel ) 2. human vs intimate object. Madame Loisel borrowed her friends diamond necklace to wear to the Ministry party. She desired to be considered well off among the other wealthy guest. Quote " Would you lend me this, Just this?" 2. The setting is France Quote " It was not I, madame, who sold the necklace; I must simply have supplied the case" ( Jeweler) Time period 1800's Madame Loisel husband was saving money to buy a gun to go lark shooting in a Nanterre .( Maupassant) 3. Climax Madame Loisel sees her friend that let her borrow the necklace ten years later and decides to tell her the truth about the lost necklace only to find out the value of the necklace was 500 francs and the replacement necklace that she brought was 40 thousand francs. She began to understand that the ten years she was working hard and living poor because of envy was all for nothing. Quote " Oh my dear Mathilde! Mine was an imitation! It was worth five hundred francs at most..." 4.Envy is represented in marriage in this quote from Madame Loisel "Give your invitation to a friend whose wife has better clothes than I do." This shows just how envious she is of richer women. Reply Quote Mark as Unread Thread: Discussion forum 7 Post: Discussion forum 7 Author:
Irma Granados Posted Date: October 11, 2018 10:14 PM Status: Published 1. Identify at least two types of conflict in "The Necklace," and explain your answer. (View the PowerPoint on the Elements of Fiction for the different types of conflict). I identify “human vs society” and “human vs self” as two types of conflict in “The Necklace”. 1. Describe the setting (location and time period) of "The Necklace." Do your best to estimate the time period. Early eighteenth century in Europe, due to the ballads. 1. When do you think the climax occurs in the "The Necklace"? Explain your answer. The climax occurs the moment Mathilde Loisel discovers she no longer has the necklace around her neck. At this moment even her husband loses it and retrace their steps.
