We learn that Mathilde is a middle-class girl who longs to be rich. She laments being born into a family of clerks. She feels it is her destiny to be rich with servants and a big house. She is very much living for a fantasy. There is a sense of immaturity to Mathilde as she pines away for the illusion of wealth and happiness.
