"Afloat courts risk in both form and content, making itself up as it goes along. As a work of art, it is as fresh and startling as the paintings of Maupassant's great contemporaries van Gogh and Gauguin."--Jacket

Mont-Oriol by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

3 editions published between 1901 and 1923 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Comment à force de bluff, de supposés miracles et de faux certificats délivrés par des médecins complaisants on parvient à fabriquer une ville d'eaux et à lotir au plus haut prix un paysage entier en exploitant la crédulité des uns et en s'appuyant sur la malhonnêteté des autres."--Cover
Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

4 editions published between 1903 and 1923 in French and held by 9 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
L'inutile beauté by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

3 editions published between 1904 and 1923 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'Inutile Beauté (1890) est le dernier recueil de contes et nouvelles paru du vivant de l'auteur."--Cover
Le Horla, et autres contes d'angoisse by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

2 editions published between 1903 and 1923 in French and held by 8 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 main gauche by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

4 editions published between 1890 and 1923 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet avant-dernier recueil publié en 1889 donne une preuve et de l'angoisse, et de la pleine maîtrise à laquelle est parvenu l'écrivain. Se sentant menacé, Maupassant a voulu fournir ici des exemples de tous les motifs qu'il a développés auparavant dans son oeuvre. Le lecteur est donc appelé à parcourir toute la palette du nouvelliste, de la farce à l'extrême souffrance

Le père Milon by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

2 editions published between 1904 and 1923 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
