Textual/talk about it

1. The course of the Loisels’ lives changed due to the necklace. Comment.

Answer: In the second half of the narrative, it becomes clear that the necklace played a significant role in altering the path that Loisel’s life took. Since they were unable to locate the missing necklace anywhere, they made the decision to replace it with a new one of the same exact design and give it to Mme. Loisel. On the other hand, the necklace was priced at 36,000 francs, but they only had 18,000 francs to spend. They obtained loans from a number of different people to cover the remaining amount. They were forced to go through excruciating pain in order to pay back the money they had borrowed. They decided to get rid of their maid and rent out some space in the attic so that they could save some money. Mme Loisel was responsible for washing the dirty dishes, linens, and all of their clothing. Mme. Loisel became a coarse woman as a result of her poverty and the shift in her way of life. Her once-glorious appearance was gradually obscured by the effects of difficult years.

2. What was the cause of Matilda’s ruin? How could she have avoided it?

Answer: Matilda’s lack of contentment with her life and the opportunities it presented led to her downfall and destruction. She was a fanciful woman who was convinced that she deserved all of the pleasures and luxuries that life had to offer her. She never experienced joy in her life. She was unhappy with the way things were. She could have avoided the disaster if she had just been happy with what she already had. Everything went wrong because of her obsession with wearing the jewel, which she would never be able to afford in her lifetime.

4. If you were caught in a situation like this, how would you have dealt with it?

Answer: Personally, I think it’s best to stop complaining about the things we don’t have and instead focus on appreciating the things we do have. Our goals in life should never be purely material. If I were in a similar situation, I would have carefully considered all of my options. I would have been honest about it with my friend. It’s better to always tell the truth, even if it means upsetting a friend. When we want to conceal a single truth, we frequently resort to telling several lies.
