The two stories are very similar to each other in the lesson the learn at least that’s what it is like for me. In the stolen party she doesn’t even know what is going on until the end, and the same in the necklace. They had no idea what was going on in both story’s, they were so innocent that they didn’t even think of asking to find out what it was worth or what was going on. If they would have been satisfied or if they would have just listened to what they were told it probably wouldn’t have happened.
In the story the stolen party the little girl thinks she has a really nice friend that is rich even though she is poor the study together, do homework, and sometimes hang out with each other, but they aren’t really friends there more like people that know each other. In the end she learns a valuable lesson that teaches about the deference’s in society, and that there are deferent sets of classes.
In the necklace the girl is not satisfied with what she has. She doesn’t want to go to the ball because she doesn’t have a nice dress, so her husband gives up the money for his rifle and buys her a dress, but she still doesn’t want to go because she has no nice jewelry. I guess the point I’m trying to make is she isn’t happy unless she gets exactly what she wants. So she got what she wanted and she had a great time but she lost the necklace. Then she was looking for a replacement necklace, she found one and gave it to her friend, she did not know it was real so the lesson would be to always tell the truth.
The two stories are the same in the sense that they both learn a valuable lesson in the necklace she learns to just tell the truth instead of trying to fix it, and in the stolen party she learns that social classes should not mix because the poor usually gets hurt, but not always.
