Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.Guy de Maupassant is one of the few writers whose short stories&#151;witty, economical, elegant, yet straightforward in style&#151;are so forceful that his literary reputation can rest on them alone. Beneath their deceptively simple surfaces lies a deep understanding of the complexities of the human psyche. Maupassant explores the full panoply of late-nineteenth-century French society, from prostitutes in Parisian brothels and peasants in rural cottages, to adulterous aristocrats at expensive spas and patrician parties.<P class=MsoNormal>This collection begins with &#147;Ball-of-Fat, the first story Maupassant published under his own name. Called a masterpiece by his friend and mentor Gustave Flaubert, it instantly raised the young author to celebrity status and created a clamor for more of his work. He responded with over three hundred stories (and six novels) written in a dozen years. Among others included here are the favorites &#147;The Necklace, &#147;The Horla, &#147;The False Gems, and &#147;Useless Beauty.<P class=MsoNormal>Richard Fusco received his Ph.D. from Duke University and is Associate Professor of English at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. A specialist in nineteenth-century American literature and in short-story narrative theory, his published criticism includes Maupassant and the American Short Story: The Influence of Form at the Turn of the Century and Fin de mill&#233;naire: Poe's Legacy for the Detective Story
