The Best Short Stories (Classics Library)

Brand: Wordsworth Editions Ltd   |   Status: Hết hàng

"An interesting and diverse group of stories. Provides a sense of 1880 France" - Amazon

"Maupassant is by far the master of the short story. I've read many classics and his stories are, in my opinion, the best. They will sweep you away to another world." - Amazon

Guy de Maupassant was a master of the short story. This collection displays his lively diversity, with tales that vary in theme and tone, ranging from tragedy and satire to comedy and farce. In a lucidly direct style, he provides unflinching realism and skeptical irony. He depicts the deceptions, hypocrisies and vanities at different levels of society. Prostitution is frankly described, while the harshness of war is deftly exposed. His tales have been televised and have influenced films, operas and rock music. Unillusioned but humane, Maupassant remains our contemporary. Short Stories include: Boule de Suif Two Friends Madame Tellier’s Establishment Mademoiselle Fifi Clair de Lune Miss Harriet The Necklace Mademoiselle Pearl The Piece of String Madame Husson’s ‘Rosier’ That Pig of a Morin Useless Beauty The Olive Orchard A Sale Love Two Little Soldiers Happiness
