"Georges Duroy is a down-and-out journalist from a humble background who engineers a stunning rise to the top of Parisian society through his relationships with influential and wealthy women. Making the most of his charm and good looks (his admirers nickname him 'Bel ami'), Duroy exploits the weaknesses of other to his own advantage--in the process betraying the woman who has most selflessly supported him"--P.

Fort comme la mort by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

428 editions published between 1889 and 2013 in 16 languages and held by 1,463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guy de Maupassant hat einen tiefgründigen Künstlerroman geschrieben: Das Altersschicksal eines begehrten Porträtmalers der Pariser Oberschicht liest sich als psychologische Studie ebenso ergreifend wie als aktuelle Reflexion über die Vergänglichkeit von Jugend, Schönheit und Sinnlichkeit. Jim Avignon, der international bekannte Pop-Art-Künstler, hat den Klassiker in seinem unverwechselbaren bunten und plakativen Stil eindrucksvoll illustriert. Der erfolgreiche Pariser Salonmaler Olivier Bertin ist überzeugter Junggeselle. Seit über zehn Jahren führt er eine in seinen Augen perfekte Affäre mit der verheirateten Gräfin Anne de Guilleroy. Die Abgeordnetengattin ist schön und eine Quelle der Inspiration für den Maler, er hegt ernsthafte Gefühle für sie, entzieht sich jedoch den Verpflichtungen einer Ehe. Was als romantische und leidenschaftliche Affäre begann, ist mittlerweile ein fester und befriedigender Bestandteil seines Lebens geworden. Da nimmt sein bisher so leichtes Leben eine plötzliche Wendung. Nach dreijähriger Abwesenheit kehrt Annes Tochter Annette, mittlerweile 18 Jahre alt und eine junge Dame, in das Elternhaus zurück, um zu heiraten. Annette ist das Ebenbild ihrer Mutter und genau so schön wie diese einst war. Bertin ist zunehmend verwirrt über seine Gefühle für die beiden Frauen. Er beginnt wahrzunehmen, dass er in den letzten Jahren gealtert ist und sehnt sich nach einem beständigen Familienleben. Anne wird durch ihre Tochter ebenfalls mit ihrer eigenen Vergänglichkeit konfrontiert und erkennt schon bald, dass sie gegen die junge Frau keine Chance hat. Maupassants 1889 erschienener Roman ist eine zeitlose und ergreifende Liebesgeschichte über die Vergänglichkeit von Jugend, Schönheit und Begehren. Jim Avignon hat das Buch illustriert. Seit Jahren ist er einer der erfolgreichsten deutschen Pop-Art-Künstler: Neben vielen anderen Projekten hat er ein Stück der Berliner Mauer und ein Flugzeug bemalt, eine Swatch-Uhr gestaltet und zur Wiedereröffnung des Berliner Olympiastadions ein 2.800 m² großes Bild gemalt. Avignons Stil ist unverwechselbar, seine Bilder sind bunt, plakativ, expressionistisch reduziert. Damit unterstreicht er das Zeitlose an Maupassants Roman über die Vergänglichkeit des Menschen
Alien hearts by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

249 editions published between 1890 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alien Hearts "was the last novel that Guy de Maupassant completed before succumbing to the effects of tertiary syphilis of which he was to die at forty-three. It is the most original and surprising of his novels and the one in which he attains a truly tragic perception of the wounded human heart. "Alien Hearts "is the story of lovers bound by bitterness as much as by passion. Maupassant's hero falls for a woman of the world, a glacially dazzling beauty whose past with an abusive husband leads her to hold him-and everyone-at arm's length. He seeks solace with a servant girl, but remains racked by pointless infatuation
Le Horla by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

402 editions published between 1887 and 2014 in 15 languages and held by 1,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our woe is upon us. This chilling tale of one man's descent into madness was published shortly before the author was institutionalized for insanity, and so The Horla has inevitably been seen as informed by Guy de Maupassant's mental illness. While such speculation is murky, it is clear that de Maupassant'hailed alongside Chekhov as father of the short story'was at the peak of his powers in this innovative precursor of first-person psychological fiction. Indeed, he worked for years on The Horla's themes and form, first drafting it as "Letter from a Madman," then telling it from a doctor's point of view, before finally releasing the terrified protagonist to speak for himself in its devastating final version. In a brilliant new translation, all three versions appear here as a single volume for the first time. The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time
Sobre el agua by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

182 editions published between 1888 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Afloat is a book of dazzling but treacherously shifting currents, a seemingly simple logbook of a sailing cruise along the French Mediterranean coast that opens up to reveal unexpected depths, as Guy de Maupassant merges fact and fiction, dream, polemic, and documentation in a wholly original manner. Humorous and troubling stories, unreliable confessions, stray reminiscences', and thoughts on life, love, art, nature, and society all find a place in Maupassant's pages, which are, in conception and in effect, so many reflections of the fluid sea on which he finds himself - at once happily and precariously - afloat."

Mademoiselle Fifi is a short story by French writer Guy de Maupassant, published in 1882 in a collection of the same title. Like many of his short stories, such as Boule de Suif and Deux Amis, the story is set during the Franco-Prussian War and explores themes of class barriers, contrasts between the French and German participants, and the pointlessness of the war.-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A life by Guy de Maupassant( )

40 editions published between 1910 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ranging from poignant scrutiny of social pretension, to wicked tales of lust and love, to harrowing stories of terror and madness, the genius of Guy de Maupassant, France's greatest short-story writer, is on full display in this enthralling new translation by Joachim Neugroschel. The stories Neugroschel has gathered vividly reveal Maupassant's remarkable range, his keen eye, his technical perfection, his sexual realism, his ability to create whole worlds and sum up intricate universes of feeling in a few pages. Adam Gopnik's Introduction incisively explores the essence of Maupassant's unique style and his tremendous, if unjustly unacknowledged, influence (on everything from the American short story to contemporary cinema), bearing eloquent testimony to Maupassant's continuing and vital appeal.
