Prosper Mérimée : écrivain, archéologue, historien ( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Des études sur les différentes vocations de Mérimée : à travers les évocations des travaux de l'inspecteur général des Monuments historiques, des écrits de l'historien, la relecture de la production de l'écrivain, telle que l'organisent son imaginaire et ses paris esthétiques, se dessine le profil d'une oeuvre ouverte sur l'avenir

Le Horla by Guy de Maupassant ( Book )
17 editions published between 1984 and 2006 in French and held by 145 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

La Vénus d'Ille et autres nouvelles by Prosper Mérimée ( Book )
14 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in French and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Un fiancé, la veille de ses noces, passe l'anneau destiné à sa future femme au doigt d'une statue de Vénus, et meurt assassiné dans la chambre nuptiale (La Vénus de l'Ille). Deux amants, échappés à la surveillance du mari pour une nuit de bonheur dans un hôtel, épient les bruits de la chambre voisine, persuadés qu'un meurtre s'y accomplit (Let Chambre bleue). Un aristocrate raffiné est subitement pris d'un accès de cruauté bestiale qui justifie peut-être les doutes dont s'entoure sa naissance : se pourrait-il qu'il soit le fils d'un ours (Lokis)? Le présent recueil rassemble les nouvelles fantastiques les plus célèbres de Mérimée. D'un style abrupt, dérangeantes, violentes parfois - "Quand Mérimée atteint son effet", c'est comme "un coup de couteau", disait Sainte-Beuve -, elles s'imposent, par leur concision, comme des modèles du genre

Pierre et Jean by Guy de Maupassant ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 56 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."--BOOK JACKET
