About this Item: J. M. Dent & Sons Limited, London, 1934. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. FIRST EDITION EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY # 907 Translated by Marjorie Laurie. The Horla Translated by Brian Rhys. Introduction by Gerald Gould. "Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant, (5 August 1850 - 6 July 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 dénouement. 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. Maupassant is considered one of the fathers of the modern short story. He delighted in clever plotting, and served as a model for Somerset Maugham and O. Henry in this respect. His stories about expensive jewelry ("The Necklace", "Les Bijoux") are imitated with a twist by Maugham ("Mr Know-All", "A String of Beads") and Henry James. Taking his cue from Balzac, Maupassant wrote comfortably in both the high-Realist and fantastic modes; stories and novels such as "L'Héritage" and Bel-Ami aim to recreate Third Republic France in a realistic way, whereas many of the short stories (notably "Le Horla" and "Qui sait ?") describe apparently supernatural phenomena. The supernatural in Maupassant, however, is often implicitly a symptom of the protagonists' troubled minds; Maupassant was fascinated by the burgeoning discipline of psychiatry, and attended the public lectures of Jean-Martin Charcot between 1885 and 1886. This interest is reflected in his fiction." Wikipedia Very good red cloth. Slight wear, usual ex-library markings. (1934), 12mo, xv, [1], 335pp. [1] Temple Press 16 page Advertising catalog of 934 volumes bound in. Book Code (K 220) 3/2//N Seymour. Seller Inventory # 011419
