Description - The Necklace and The Pearls by Guy de Maupassant

Here are two contrasting stories, one about a necklace of pearls, the other about a necklace of diamonds. Guy de Maupassant's The Necklace is a story of vanity, of two lives blighted by the loss of a diamond necklace, whilst Isak Dinesen's The Pearls is a story of love and fear. Both authors in different ways use the symbolism of jewels to illustrate the human condition.

Author Biography - Guy de Maupassant

GUY DE MAUPASSANT was born in the Chateau of Miromesnil near Dieppe in 1850. His influence on French literature and the development of the short-story form was profound. Through Gustave Flaubert he met other luminaries of his age, such as Zola, Daudet, and Turgenev. He died of syphilis in 1893, at the age of forty-three. ISAK DINESEN was the 'non de plume' of Karen Blixen, who was born in Rungsted, Denmark in 1885. She studied art in Copenhagen, Paris and Rome before marrying her cousin Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke in 1914. In 1934 Dinesen made her literary debut with the publication of 'Seven Gothic Tales'. This was followed in 1937 by 'Out of Africa', an autobiographical account of her life in Kenya, which was later made into a film. This Translation of 'The Necklace' is by Jonathan Sturges. 'The Pearls' was written in English.
