The French author Guy de Maupassant () was a master of the short story, creating detailed character studies and brief but moving dramas well suited to the genre. The nine stories in this collection provide a vivid portrait gallery of his typical subjects—from simple peasants and prostitutes to soldiers, government clerks and provincial bourgeois.
