Foreshadowing in the story The Necklace by Guy de Maupasssant is rife with foreshadowing and irony. Here's one good example of foreshadowing: She suffered from the poverty of her dwelling, from the worn walls, the abraded chairs, the ugliness of the stuffs. All these things, which another woman of her caste would not even have noticed, tortured her and made her indignant.


SHE was one of those pretty and charming girls, born by a blunder of destiny in a family of employees.
