A woman's life by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

959 editions published between 1883 and 2019 in 21 languages and held by 4,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Life (1883), the first of Maupassant's six completed novels, tells the story of Jeanne de Lamare, the only daughter of wealthy Norman aristocrats, from the day she leaves her convent school, heart and mind full of fond, excited hopes for the future, to the day almost twenty-nine years later when she becomes a grandmother in very changed circumstances. She who had thought that life would be perfect - with a handsome husband, two lovely children, and a fine chateau by the sea - discovers that reality is not at all like romantic fiction." "The story is set on the coast of Normandy, where the passage of the seasons and the vagaries of the weather play a central role in the unfolding of a life beset by treachery and disillusion, but a life redeemed from dreariness by the poignant beauty of Maupassant's prose."--Jacket
Boule de suif by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

572 editions published between 1880 and 2018 in 15 languages and held by 1,906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A scathing satire of bourgeois prejudice and hypocrisy and a compelling snapshot of France during the 1870 Franco-Prussian War, `Boule de Suif' - here presented with five other major stories on the lives of prostitutei - was declared a masterpiece by Flaubert and is widely considered to be Maupassant's finest short story

Like death by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

413 editions published between 1889 and 2019 in 19 languages and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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"--
Alien hearts by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

309 editions published between 1890 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 1,721 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

263 editions published between 1885 and 2021 in 6 languages and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parricides, ivrognes, enfants pervers, maris aveugles, ravissantes idiotes, bourgeois lâches et mesquins, paysans cruels et cupides, vous ne trouverez dans ces contes, de jour comme de nuit, que bourreaux ou victimes.Mais s'ils sont tous à tuer, ils tuent aussi beaucoup, ou se pendent, ou se tirent à la rigueur un coup de revolver dans la bouche par peur de la mort...Maupassant serait-il le grand ancêtre méconnu du néo-polar ?
Le Horla by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

467 editions published between 1886 and 2020 in 16 languages and held by 1,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Horla raconte la lente désagrégation d'un esprit, de la dépression à la folie - des maux que connaissait bien Maupassant. Le héros se sent peu à peu envahi par un autre, qui agit à travers lui : le Horla, puissance invisible, inconsciente, qui le manipule. S'installent alors l'incompréhension, la peur, l'angoisse. Jusqu'à l'irréparable. Prenant la forme du journal intime, la nouvelle illustre ce que Freud nommera l'inquiétante étrangeté, cette intrusion progressive du malaise dans le quotidien. Modèle de nouvelle fantastique, Le Horla est aussi une description clinique du dédoublement de personnalité qui menace toute conscience

Mont-Oriol by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

392 editions published between 1886 and 2019 in 22 languages and held by 1,339 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. Le conflit de la bourgeoisie locale, du propriétaire paysan âpre et rusé et de la banque, de l'affairisme parisien. Un des plus cruels portraits du corps médical que l'on ait jamais faits et une histoire sentimentale peut-être plus cruelle encore. En démontant les rouages de la spéculation foncière, en analysant le mécanisme de la concentration capitaliste à la fin du siècle dernier, Maupassant a écrit, avec Mont-Oriol, le plus moderne de ses romans

Afloat by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

199 editions published between 1888 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 1,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Mademoiselle Fifi by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

299 editions published between 1882 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maupassant fut le meilleur élève de Flaubert.Ils étaient, tous deux, normands et réalistes. Les nouvelles de Maupassant : des instantanés ou des petits morceaux de vie inoubliables. Mademoiselle Fifi est, en réalité, un jeune officier prussien, occupant la France en 1870, blond, à la taille fine, fier et brutal, surnommé ainsi parce qu'il méprise tout et tout le monde et répète sans cesse : " Fi, fi donc ". " Il trouvera plus fort que lui. Provinciales inassouvies, amants surpris, prostituées, femmes de notaire, nobles ruinés, amis pêcheurs, chacun a son portrait juste et émouvant. Ces nouvelles sont brèves, ainsi l'exigeait le presse quotidienne qui les publiait avec succès.Brèves mais exprimant l'essentiel. Chaque personnage, à un moment décisif, touche le fond de la vie et reste marqué à jamais. Maupassant affirmait appartenir à la famille des écorchés. " J'ai froid de la solitude de la vie ", disait-il
