Question

Think about this story's point of view as if you were Maupassant trying to decide how to tell your story. Write a paragraph telling how the story would change if it were told in the first person by a. Mathilde's husband b. Mathilde herself Be specific. Cite at least two ways in which the story or its effect would differ if a different person told it.

Solution

Verified

If Mathilde's husband were telling the story, we might see how inadequate he feels, with Mathilde always wanting more. If Mathilde herself were narrating the story, I think we get a lot more of her boasting, but there might also be more humanity to her character, even more of a backstory to her envy.
