This is a rendition of Guy de Maupassant's ironically tragic, "The Necklace". The text, unabridged and verbatim from Maupassant's original, is formatted in a two-column page for the reading ease and encouragement of your scholars. Scholars reading more difficult prose may find themselves encouraged at progressing with speed down a column, rather than all the way across a full page and back to the next line. Likewise, this story makes an excellent participative reading selection (or Reader's Theater) and is spaced more widely for the eye to follow along and more readily speak one's part.
This rendition is as close as one can come to a textbook-formatted copy of the story; much better than printing from the pages of a website or photocopying that old copy one more time. Purchase this copy only once and it will always stay sharp and new on your hard drive.
