Book Description Dover Publications Inc., United States, 1992. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 208 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The French author Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a master of the short story, creating detailed character studies and brief but moving dramas well suited to the genre. The nine stories in this collection provide a vivid portrait gallery of his typical subjects -- from simple peasants and prostitutes to soldiers, government clerks, and provincial bourgeois. Brilliantly naturalistic, these short works also reveal Maupassant s ability to observe the innumerable details of everyday life and reproduce them artfully and accurately, often with a caustic sense of humor. His literary talents are amply displayed in this volume, which includes these memorable tales: Ball-of-Fat, regarded by many as technically one of the finest short stories ever written, The Necklace, A Piece of String, Mme. Tellier s Establishment, Mademoiselle Fifi, Miss Harriet, A Way to Wealth, My Uncle Jules, and The Horla. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780486270647
