In the short story, ? The Necklace?, written by Guy de Maupassant
and the poem, ?Kindly Unhitch that Star, Buddy? written by Odgen Nash,
both works deal with success. Everyone wants to achieve success in many
ways, but success doesn?t come very easily. In each work the authors use
language and structure to convey ideas about success.
In ?The Necklace?, Mathlid Loisel wants to look and be successful
anyway she can. Mathlid Loisel borrows a necklace for one night and loses
it; she is forced to pay for it for the next ten years. During the time she is
paying off the cost of the necklace, Mathlid Loisel becomes old and looks run down looking.
Mathlide Loisel realizes that she had been relativity successful after losing
the necklace. The theme of the necklace is that sometimes you are more
successful than you may think.
In ?Kindly Unhitch That Star, Buddy?, the Poet Ogden Nash
describes success in his poem. Nash is telling us that people would
rather be successes than failures. Nash feels that it?s best that we all can?t be
successful because then there wouldn?t be anyone
