Books Info:

Guy de Maupassant free pdf Henri Rene Albert Guy de Maupassant (5 August 1850 - 6 July 1893) was a popular French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's finest exponents. Maupassant was a protege of Flaubert and his stories are characterized by economy of style and efficient, effortless denouements (outcomes). Many are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s, describing the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught up in events beyond their control, are permanently changed by their experiences. He wrote some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. His first published story, "Boule de Suif" ("Ball of Fat," 1880), is often considered his masterpiece. Leo Tolstoy used Maupassant as the subject for one of his essays on art: The Works of Guy de Maupassant. Friedrich Nietzsche's autobiography mentions him in the following text: "I cannot at all conceive in which century of history one could haul together such inquisitive and at the same time delicate psychologists as one can in contemporary Paris: I can name as a sample - for their number is by no means small, ... or to pick out one of the stronger race, a genuine Latin to whom I am particularly attached, Guy de Maupassant." Includes: THE UMBRELLA - BELHOMME'S BEAST - DISCOVERY - THE ACCURSED BREAD - THE DOWRY - THE DIARY OF A MADMAN - THE MASK - THE PENGUINS' ROCK - A FAMILY - SUICIDES - AN ARTIFICE - DREAMS - SIMON'S PAPA - THE CHILD - A COUNTRY EXCURSION - ROSE - ROSALIE PRUDENT - REGRET - A SISTER'S CONFESSION - COCO - DEAD WOMAN'S SECRET etc...."
