BEST SHORT STORIES OF GUY DE MAUPASSANTGUY MAUPASSANT Book Number: 24277 Product format: Paperback
The master of the short story has themes ranging from the brutality of war and the hypocrisy it spawns, the petty limitations, dissimulations and vanities inherent at different levels of society and all the stories are linked by a trenchant irony and preoccupation with the frailty of human nature and futility of so many lives. From tragedy and satire to comedy and farce. 197 page Wordsworth paperback.
