    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.

    First published in 1908, and widely regraded as his masterpiece, Penguin Island is Anatole France's most searching and satirical novel. A humorous critique of customs and laws, rituals and rites, its subject is human nature, but its characters are penguins in the mythical land of Penguinia. The story of the strutting penguins and their virtues and vices is not merely a burlesque allegory of French history, it is a satire of the history of mankind. With gentle yet biting irony, France challenges the Spencerian belief in the ultimate perfectibility of man, though his irony reveals his sympathy for man's weaknesses and his need for social institutions.

    Nous sommes en 1793, Évariste Gamelin, un jeune peintre parisien, sensible à l'injustice et généreux, devient juré au tribunal révolutionnaire, et va franchir peu à peu, sous le prétexte de protéger la révolution de divers complots, la frontière qui sépare le juste de l'ignoble, le bon de l'exécrable, le légitime du totalitaire.Son amour pour Élodie, la fille de son marchand d'estampes, accentue l'aspect paradoxal de la montée d'une cruauté inspirée par des idées politiques a priori généreuses.

    In questo terzo libro della Storia contemporanea, il signor Bergeret si riconcilia finalmente con la vita. Diventato professore titolare, acquisita la dolce compagnia di un cane, continua, fra riflessioni filosofiche e prese di posizioni politiche del tutto scomode riguardanti l’affare Dreyfus, ad accompagnarci nel viaggio di questa Francia in cui governi radicali e conservatori si alternano, e in cui l’antisemitismo viene considerato patriottico.
