is
 
not in the original, butunderstood to be there.Mathilde
suffered
(zero) ceaselessly, feeling herself born to enjoy all delicacies and all luxuries. She
was distressed
(zero) {at the poverty} {of her dwelling}, {at the bareness} {of the walls}, {at the shabby chairs}, the ugliness {of the curtains}. All those things, {of which} another woman {of her rank}
would
 
never 
even
have been
[conscious] (PA), *all those things*
tortured
[her] (DO) and
made
[her] (DO)
angry
.The sight {of the little Breton peasant} who
did
her humble [housework] (DO)
aroused
{in her} despairing [regrets] (DO) and bewildering [dreams] (DO). She
thought of 
[1]
silent [antechambers] (DO) hung {with Oriental tapestry}, illumined {by tall bronze candelabra}, and *she
thought
*
of 
two great [footmen] (DO) {in knee breeches} who
sleep
(zero) {in the big armchairs}, made drowsy {by the oppressive heat} {of the stove}. She
thought
 
of 
long reception [halls] (DO) hung {with ancient silk}, {of the dainty cabinets} containing priceless curiosities and *she
thought
*
of 
the little coquettish perfumed reception [rooms] (DO) made {for chatting} {at five o'clock} {with intimate friends}, {with men famous and sought after}, [whom] (DO) all women
envy
 and whose [attention] (DO) they all
desire
. ... "[There] (PN),"
said
he, "there
is
[something] (PN) {for you}." She
tore
the [paper] (DO) quickly and
drew
 
out
a printed [card] (PN) which
 
 
bore
these [words] (DO): "The Minister {of Public Instruction} and Madame Georges Ramponneau 
request
the [honor] (DO) {of M. and Madame Loisel's company} {at the palace} {of  the Ministry} {on Monday evening}, January 18th." Instead {of being delighted}, as her husband
had hoped
(zero), she
threw
the [invitation] (DO) {on the table} crossly, muttering: "What
do
you
wish
[me] (DO) to do {with that}?" "Why, my dear, I
thought
(zero) you
would be
[glad] (PA). You never 
go out
(zero), and this
is
such a fine [opportunity] (PN). I
had
great [trouble] (DO) to get it. Every one
wants
[to go] (DO); it
is
very [select] (PA), and they
are
not
giving
many [invitations] (DO) {to clerks}. The whole official world
will be
[there] (PN)." She
looked
(zero) {at him} {with an irritated glance} and *she*
said
(zero) impatiently: "And what
do
you
wish
[me] (DO) to put {on my back}?" He
had
not
thought
 
of 
[that] (DO). He
stammered
: (zero) "Why, *you
can wear 
* the [gown] (DO) *that* you
go
(zero) {to the theatre} {in *the gown*}.It
looks
very [well] (PA) {to me}." He
stopped
(zero), distracted, seeing that his wife
was
 
weeping
(zero). Two great tears 
ran
(zero) slowly {from the corners} {of her eyes} {toward the corners} {of her mouth}. "What'
s
the [matter] (PN)? What'
s
the [matter] (PN)?" he
answered
(zero). {By a violent effort} she
conquered
her [grief] (DO) and *she*
replied
(zero) {in a calm voice}, while she
wiped
her wet [cheeks] (DO): "Nothing *
is
the [matter] (PN)*. Only I
have
no [gown] (DO), and, therefore, I
can
't
go
{to thisball}. *You*
Give
your [card] (DO) {to some colleague} whose wife
is
better [equipped] (PA) than I
am
." He
was
[in despair] (PA). He
resumed
