Le Horla, et autres contes d'angoisse by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 2006 in French and held by 150 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 )

17 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in French and held by 108 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

Michael Kohlhaas by Heinrich von Kleist( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in French and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You can send me to the scaffold, but I can make you suffer, and I mean to." Based on actual historic events, this thrilling saga of violence and retribution bridged the gap between medieval and modern literature, and speaks so profoundly to the contemporary spirit that it has been the basis of numerous plays, movies, and novels. It has become, in fact, a classic tale: that of the honorable man forced to take the law into his own hands. In this incendiary prototype, a minor tax dispute intensifies explosively, until the eponymous hero finds the forces of an entire kingdom, and even the great Martin Luther, gathered against him. But soon even Luther comes to echo the growing army of peasants asking, 'Isnt' Kohlhaas right?'
