The Short Stories Of Guy De Maupassant

By Guy De Maupassant

Maupassant’s style is strikingly modern and unfussy. He can tell a life story in the space of a few pages.

A master of the short story, Maupassant wrote stories that are increadibly varied in theme and styles alike. His portraits of humanity are characterised by a focus on unflinchingly realistic descriptions of material desire as a driving force in the lives of both rich and poor. In this unforgiving world, his characters are victims of a cruel fate against which they struggle in vain.
