This paper takes a look at the elements in the story, "The Diamond Necklace", and how the author defines the concept of quality.
From the Paper:"Guy De Maupassant's short story "The Diamond Necklace," revolves around the character Mrs. Loisel's perception of quality, both symbolically and literally. Mrs. Loisel's vanity and her love of beautiful things creates an ironic situation in which she and her husband end up paying a huge price for a beautiful necklace that is practically worthless. Through the literary elements of setting, character, and symbol, De Maupassant poses the argument that human avarice and desire blind people to genuine quality, superiority, and excellence. An examination of the elements in "The Diamond Necklace" supports this argument. "
