Overview

With links from the tables of contents to every chapter and every story, this file includes four novels, in English translation: Une Vie, Bel Ami, Pierre and Jean, and Strong as Death. It also includes all 13 volumes of "Original Maupassant Short Stories", with a total of 169 stories. According to Wikipedia: "Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant (5 August 1850 - 6 July 1893) was a popular 19th-century French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's finest exponents. A protégé of Flaubert, Maupassant's stories are characterized by their economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouement. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. He authored some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. The story "Boule de Suif" ("Ball of Fat", 1880) is often accounted his masterpiece. His most unsettling horror story, "Le Horla" (1887), was about madness and suicide."
