why is mathilde unsatisfied at the beginning of the story
It is hard to say, as there are different angles. It is not clearly stated when the story took place in nineteenth century Paris. if telephones were up and runn
ing- and say if this was the nineties- surely that was the style- she would, methinks,call the owner of the necklace up and explain exactly what happened- how the gems were accidentally lost- my guess is then the owner would explain to Mme Loisel that there was no worry and it was costume jewelry- or ( paste) as it is described in the story- the repayment and crash dive into poverty would have never happened- Honesty is the best policy. My guess if the author wanted to make fun of (society crashers) using gimmicks- in effect inverting the Cinderella plot device. O. Henry did a similar story about a bungled inheritance scheme- that was foiled by history- All iof the Money was Confederate.
It takes two to swindle- assume that MMe Loisel immediately infomed ( my guess by telephone) the circumstances of the loss- she probably would have explained it was a (wearing copy) and that would end the story right there. By the way wearing copies of such things as Gold and Platinum war medals were worn by officers in the field and also by diplomats at Press conferences- to avoid loss. Mathilde Vs. Dee In БThe NecklaceБ, Mathilde is seen as a poor woman who had low self-esteem and was married to a clerk. In this story, she was invited to a ball and borrowed a friendБs necklace. After the ball, Mathilde discovers that the necklace was lost. As a result, she had to search for a similar necklace and had to take out loans to make a purchase. She was forced to work for ten years to pay off the debt until one day when she saw her friend.
Little did Mathilde know that the necklace she lost was worth much less than the new necklace she paid for. In the story БEveryday UseБ, Dee is portrayed as a girl who Бmade itБ. She was seen by her mother and Maggie as a talented girl. Her only flaw was her selfishness towards her younger sister Maggie. In the story, she pays a visit to Maggie and her mother and have dinner. After dinner, Dee goes rifling through a trunk and two quilts catch her eye. She demands her mother to hand them to her. Although they were to be passed onto Maggie, she allows Dee to keep the quilts. In the end, Dee gives the quilts back. Unlike Dee, Mathilde is described as a woman with unsatisfied living conditions who thought she should have been born with more luxuries.

DeeБs mother compares her to Maggie as being ББlighter. with nicer hair and a fuller figure. Б (Walker, 10) and describes her as an outstanding child who held her life in the palm of her hands. БYouБve no doubt seen those TV shows where the child who has Бmade itБ is confronted, as a surprise, by her own mother and fatherББ (Walker, 3). Mathilde and Dee both seem never to be satisfied when it comes to having valuables but they also care about the possession of others. Mathilde took advantage of her husband, having him loan her a mass of money to buy a dress. БI donБt know exactly, but I can manage it with four hundred francs. Б.
