Le père Milon by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

11 editions published between 1904 and 1926 in French and Undetermined and held by 83 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

Like death by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

"Olivier Bertin is at the height of his career as a painter. After making his name with his Cleopatra, he went on to establish himself as "the chosen painter of the Parisiennes, the most adroit and ingenious artist to reveal their grace, their figures, and their souls." And though his hair may be white, he remains a handsome, vigorous, and engaging bachelor, a prized guest at every table and salon. Anne, the comtesse de Guilleroy, is a youthful forty, the wife of a busy politician. The painter and the comtesse have been lovers for many years. Anne's daughter, Annette--the spitting image of her mother in her lovely youth--has finished her schooling and is returning to Paris. Her parents are putting together an excellent match. Everything is as it should be--until the painter and comtesse are each seized by an agonizing suspicion, like death ... In its devastating depiction of the treacherous nature of love, Like Death is more than the equal of Swann's Way. Richard Howard's new translation brings out all the penetration and poetry of this masterpiece of nineteenth-century fiction"--

Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

16 editions published between 1895 and 1958 in French and Undetermined and held by 50 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

"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
Mademoiselle Fifi and other stories by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

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
Alien hearts by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

16 editions published between 1902 and 1953 in French and Undetermined and held by 33 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
