4 CORRECTIONS: Guy de Maupassant High school students are probably most familiar with the author Guy de Maupassant as a short story writer. De Maupassant was a good friend of the novelist Gustave Flaubert; in fact, his writing style is like Flaubert's. As a child, de Maupassant often observed the worst side of society, and later he used that in his stories. His short stories are memorable for their ironic endings in which the main characters’ beliefs are turned upside down. In ”The Necklace,” for example, he describes a minor official and his wife who reduce themselves to poverty by repaying a debt. After years of hardship, they learn that the debt was altogether unnecessary. I found thirteen errors.

Set the original aside, and write your paraphrase on a note card. 3. Jot down a few words below your paraphrase to remind you later how you envision using this material. At the top of the note card, write a key word or phrase to indicate the subject of your paraphrase. 4. Check your rendition with the original to make sure that your version accurately expresses all the essential information in a new form. 5. Use quotation marks to identify any unique term or phraseology you have borrowed exactly from the source. 6. Record the source (including the page) on your note card so that you can credit it easily if you decide to incorporate the material into your paper.
