This carefully crafted ebook: "The Complete Works: Short Stories, Novels, Plays, Poetry, Memoirs and more" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Guy de Maupassant (1850–1893) was a popular French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's finest exponents. Maupassant was a protégé of Flaubert and his stories are characterized by economy of style and efficient, effortless outcomes. He wrote some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. His first published story, "Boule de Suif" ("Ball of Fat"), is often considered his masterpiece.
