Short Stories by Guy de Maupassant

Guy de Maupassant (1850–1893) was a popular 19th-century French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form’s finest exponents. A protégé of Flaubert, Maupassant’s stories are characterized by their economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouements. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. Includes; Boule de Suif; Paul’s Mistress; The Story of a Farm-girl; An Adventure in Paris and many more.
