Extrait : ""Depuis un mois, le large soleil jette aux champs sa flamme cuisante. La vie radieuse éclot sous cette averse de feu ; la terre est verte à perte de vue. jusqu'aux bords de l'horizon, le ciel est bleu. les fermes normandes semées par la plaine semblent, de loin, de petits bois, enfermées dans leur ceinture de hêtres élancés. De près, quand on croit voir un jardin géant, car tous les antiques pommiers, osseux comme les paysans, sont en fleurs.""À PROPOS DES ÉDITIONS LIGARANLes éditions LIGARAN proposent des versions numériques de qualité de grands livres de la littérature classique

Fort comme la mort by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

18 editions published between 1890 and 1956 in French and Undetermined and held by 56 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

Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

16 editions published between 1895 and 1958 in French and Undetermined and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maupassant's second novel, Bel-Ami (1885), is the story of a ruthlessly ambitious young man (Georges Duroy, christened "Bel-Ami" by his female admirers) making it to the top in fin-de-siecle Paris. It is a novel about money, sex, and power, set against the background of the politics of the French colonization of North Africa. It explores the dynamics of an urban society uncomfortably close to our own and is a devastating satire of the sleaziness of contemporary journalism. Bel-Ami enjoys the status of an authentic record of the apotheosis of bourgeois capitalism under the Third Republic. But the creative tension between its analysis of modern behavior and its identifiably late nineteenth-century fabric is one of the reasons why Bel-Ami remains one of the finest French novels of its time, as well as being recognized as Maupassant's greatest achievement as a novelist. - Back cover
Le Horla, et autres contes d'angoisse by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

16 editions published between 1903 and 1965 in French and Undetermined and held by 45 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
Mademoiselle Fifi. M. Jocaste by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

13 editions published between 1902 and 2010 in French and Undetermined and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
