George Duroy, a naive provincial determined to succeed in the Paris of the Third Republic, learns that the exploitation of women and sex attains quicker results than mere talent and hard work
Pierre et Jean. [Texte établi, avec introd., notes et relevé de variantes by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

527 editions published between 1885 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 2,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre et Jean marked a turning-point in the development of French fiction, situated as it is between traditional social realism and the psychological novel. It is recognized as a classic study of filial jealousy, triggered by one of the two brothers of its title finding himself the sole inheritor of the fortune of his mother's former lover." "Pierre et Jean is set in Le Havre in the 1880s and is notable for its evocation of the Normandy coastline captured by the Impressionists. But Maupassant's achievement is to have woven from this simple plot in a maritime context a brilliantly crafted exploration of the complexities at the heart of family life."--Jacket

Alien hearts by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

264 editions published between 1890 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,395 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

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
