    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.

    Guy de Maupassant est un auteur majeur, dont la marque sur la littérature française est indélébile. Ce qu'on connaît moins de lui... c'est son côté lubrique, pourtant très drôle. "À la feuille de rose, maison turque" est une farce grivoise, entre blague érotique et comédie de mœurs. Cette pièce de théâtre se déroule dans une maison close. Un jeune couple de bourgeois provinciaux s'imagine pouvoir passer sa nuit de noces dans un hôtel tranquille. Mal leur en prend ; il s'agit en fait d'un lupanar de la pire espèce.

    In questo racconto lungo Guy De Maupassant, alternando serietà e sarcasmo, propone uno spaccato di borghesi francesi che , vuoti di valori e permeati di ipocrisia, vengono a patti con tutto pur di accaparrarsi una eredità milionaria. Amico di Flaubert. Emile Zola, da cui fu profondamente influenzato, Maupassant spesso ritrae nelle sue opere la stupidità, la cupidigia, la crudeltà e soprattutto la meschinità, e il riso è più amaro che dolce. Cornice musicale di Paul Dukas.

Parmi ces dix personnes, se trouvent des bourgeois, des commerçants, des nobles, et une prostituée, surnommée Boule de Suif, à cause de son embonpoint.

    La Gordinflona es la historia de una prostituta francesa. Guy de Maupassant utiliza la imagen de esta mujer como representación del pueblo francés, sin títulos ni dinero, engañados por la clase dirigente, derrotados. Son ellos quienes sufren las verdaderas consecuencias de la guerra. Boule de Suif (o La Gordinflona) nos presenta también la hipocresía de las clases acomodadas de la época, más interesadas en su propio beneficio que en el de Francia.

    Guy de Maupassant is revered for his naturalistic fiction, which brilliantly captures flesh-and-blood characters as it evokes the most telling details of everyday life. Considered one of the finest French novels ever written, Bel Ami follows journalist Georges Duroy and his increasing stature among the Paris elite. With an immense thirst for power, Georges is not above an almost gleeful use of wealthy mistresses to achieve his ends.

    H. P. Lovecraft is arguably the most important horror writer of the 20th century. Culled from his 1927 essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature”, Lovecraft acknowledges those authors and stories that he feels are the very finest the horror field has to offer, including Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, Bram Stoker, Robert Louis Stevenson, Guy de Maupassant, Ambrose Bierce, and Arthur Conan Doyle. This chilling collection includes 20 works, each prefaced by Lovecraft's own opinions and insights in each author’s work.
