The Necklace

Mrs. Mathilde Loisel
In ?The Necklace? by Guy De Maupassant the protagonist character is Mathilde Loisel. Mathilde is an attractive young woman that has an ambitious imagination of fanciful dining and expensive material things. Her husband, Mr. Loisel, is more of a passive, easily controlled, generous man. Despite his job as a clerk he gives whatever he has to please his dear wife. The couple is invited to a formal dinner with the Chancellor of Education, who is obviously one of the wealthy people in society. Instead of being delighted that they were invited Mathilde complains and cries because she does not own anything suitable enough for wear. Mr. Loisel gives up his summer savings in order to afford a new dress for Mathilde but when the night comes she is not completely pleased so Mathilde borrows a beautiful diamond necklace from a wealthy friend,
