Best Short Stories: A Dual-Language Book
Paperback - French

In this collection of seven of his most popular stories each tale reflects both the author's intimate familiarity with Paris and the provinces in the Belle Epoque, as well as a nonjudgmental humanism that is one of Guy de Maupassant's most attractive writing qualities. ...In his stories Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) blended brilliantly realistic depictions of characters moving against carefully described backgrounds with an objectivity and universality that has earned him a place among the finest of all short-story writers. In this collection of seven of his most popular stories, each tale reflects both the author's intimate familiarity with Paris and the provinces in the Belle Epoque, as well as a nonjudgmental humanism that is one of Maupassant's most attractive qualities.
Included in this volume are his celebrated masterpiece Boule de Suif, along with six other finely crafted selections: La Parure, Mademoiselle Fifi, La Maison Tellier, La Ficelle, Miss Harriet, and Le Horla. The stories are printed in French with excellent new word-for-word English translations on the facing pages.
Students of both French and English will find here an excellent resource for upgrading their language skills. Admirers of fine literature will enjoy the conciseness, strength, and rigorous economy that characterize Maupassant's art.
