Guy de Maupassant

(1850-1893)

French Author
Le Bel Ami

Conteur r‚aliste, il peint la soci‚t‚ de son temps d'une fa‡on cruelle et color‚e. Ecrivain pessimiste, il sait trŠs bien rendre les hantises et les cauchemars de la vie int‚rieure Maupassant spends his early year at the sea-side, in Normandy, France, amidst fishermen's kids, dreaming of the beautiful sailing yachts of the Bay of Fecamp, a picture that will follow him all his life. His family life was extreme, cherished by his immoderate and neuropath mother and despising his characterless father. Maupassant was a handsome man, loving women immoderatedly, which caused him to catch syphilis.


At the end of his life, Maupassant, was abusing of drugs, trying to overcome unsuccessfully his fatal illness. The nightmares and distresses, caused by these medicines, are reflected in his masterpiece, Le Horla (The Horla, 1887)

Le Horla is one of his masterpieces
Arthur Symons said of Maupassant: "His appeal is genuine, and his skill, of its kind, incontestable. He attracts, as certain men do, by a warm and blunt plausibility. He is so frank, and seems so broad; and is so skilful, and seems so living. All the exterior heat of life is in his work; and this exterior heat gives a more immediate illusion of what we call real life than the profound inner vitality of, let us say, Hawthorne."
