The Necklace Analyze main character
2 pages (500 words)
In the story, Guy de Maupassant portrayed a huge contrast between Mathilde and her destiny. Though Mathilde was pretty and charming, she was born "by a blunder of destiny (de Maupassant 1)" in a poor family. Behind her beautiful face is a bitter predestination of having "no dowry, no means of being known, understood, loved, married by a rich man, and distinguished (de Maupassant 1)." Her whole life was determined by her social status-she was just married to a young clerk who could not give her the things that she thought was meant for her and she longed so much to have.
