The Elements of a Short Story

Use the following diagram to help you identify the four parts of a plot and the other major elements of a short story.

The Necklace” Practicing Literary Terms




Irony: When the audience expects something to happen and the opposite occurs.


In “The Interlopers” by Saki, the ending is ironic.

In ‘The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant,

For example, after Ulrich and Georg forgive each other, they think their men are racing down the hill to rescue them, but Ulrich sees “Wolves” (4).

CM

The ending is ironic because the reader expects a fairy tale ending that is typical of most stories where the protagonists are saved instead of killed, so one would expect both Ulrich and Georg to be saved instead of eaten by wolves.

In addition, the reader expects Ulrich or Georg’s men to arrive since they have forgiven each other, so the arrival of wolves is ironic.

The Necklace” Practicing Literary Terms




Foreshadow: The use of hints or clues to suggest what will happen later in the story


In “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, the description of the island foreshadows the depraved mind of General Zaroff.

In ‘The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant,

This foreshadows the horrific event that happens later on the island because the place has a bad reputation among sailors.

Furthermore, the place is “evil” which hints at the owner of the island to be “evil” as well and General Zaroff is undeniably wicked.
