Details

"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. He delighted in clever plotting, and served as a model for Somerset Maugham and O. Henry in this respect. His stories about expensive jewellery “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. The supernatural in Maupassant, however, is often implicity a symptom of the protagonists’ troubled minds."
