About Original Short Stories - Volume 3 by Guy de Maupassant

Guy de Maupassant is widely regarded as the father of the modern short story. As his 13 volumes of short stories attest, he was a prolific writer of this form. He had a simple, efficient style of writing and, like Anton Chekhov, found inspiration for his stories in the day-to-day lives of characters, in which their hidden natures are often revealed. Many of his works also centerd on the Franco-Prussian War, in which he served. Original Short Stories - Volume 1 by Guy de Maupassant is short-story writing at its best. They're just unforgettable stories. They're concise, funny, satirical, and they describe life at its most mundane and yet most interesting and sometimes shocking juncture. It's a kind of life that someone who grows up in America may never imagine, the kind of closed, stuffy Old World life that may just exist unchanged for millennia.
