Guy De Maupassant


Remembered as you of France’s most significant brief story writers, de Maupassant penned an 1880 masterpiece entitled “Boule de Suif” (“Butterball”) and continued to write a great many other well-known stories, including “La Bete a Mait Belhomme” (“Belhomme’s Beast”); “La Ficelle” (“The Little bit of String”); and “Pierrot” (“Sparrow”). Through the Franco-Prussian Battle, he worked being a clerk for the French Navy. Afterwards, he edited such Parisian publications as Le Figaro and Le Gaulois; it had been during this time period that he composed his first brief tales. He was among several Parisian authors and performers who compared the construction from the Eiffel Tower. He and his sibling Herve were blessed to rich parents called Laure Le Poittevin and Gustave de Maupassant. His brief tale “The Necklace” motivated author Henry Adam’ 1899 piece “Paste.”
