Classic French Short Stories, Volume 1 | [Jean Paul Sartre, Guy de Maupassant, Anatole France, Albert Camus]

Classic French Short Stories, Volume 1

French literature may be said to begin with the ninth century "Song of Roland," and it has since then churned out masterpiece after masterpiece in every century right up to the present. Beginning with Balzac and Dumas in the early part of the nineteenth century and proceeding to Sartre and Camus at the midpoint of the twentieth, the stories in this collection showcase the talents of some of the greatest French masters of the short story.

    "Computer or human"

    Could not work out if the narator was human, or a computer. The voice often sounded like a voice recogniton programme. Not the easiest listen from Audible.
