Ranging in subject from murder, adultery and war to the simple pleasures of eating and drinking, Guy de Maupassant's short stories are his greatest achievements. Maupassant's instinctive insight into the vices and passions of "respectable" men and women is tempered by a sensual appreciation of the good things in life and a robust humor.
