Objectives

His name probably sounds familiar: Guy de Maupassant, French naturalist writer of short stories and novels who is by general agreement the greatest French short-story writer. His stories are tragically powerful even though his characters are common poor people and ordinary rich bourgeois, dealing with fate and necessity.

But do you really know him, and what goes beyond the layers of his writings?

Learn more about the man: study the impressionistic descriptions of his native region, Normandie.
Learn more about his time: what does the psychology of his characters say about this period in France?
Learn more about his work: from extracts of 
Pierre et Jean (1887) to full short-stories that you will read in their entirety.
