This book examines the language of Maupassant in the nouvelles with reference to the stylistic conventions of French Realism, and especially those of the novels of Flaubert and Zola. The author notes the formal continuities which link Maupassant's shorter fiction to the universes of the two great Realist writers and his remarkable innovations. Maupassant's elaboration of a personal vision of the world is observed in a range of stylistic choices and rhetorical uses of language. Separate chapters analyse the forms of his style in representations of paysages, of individual psychology, of the appearances of people and of the objects with which they surround themselves. Two further chapters examine the extensive Maupassantian usage of figures of analogy and the structure of his sentence with particular attention to verbal usage. A conclusion outlines the conventions of meaningfulness in the nouvelle as a genre and indicates Maupassant's unique place in the history of French Realism.
