About this Recording

MAUPASSANT: Normandy Stories

Maupassant is hailed as one of the greatest masters of the short story. This collection focuses upon the land he knew and loved so well—Normandy. Its people and its countryside are portrayed here in vivid colour and with great warmth. Amusing, saucy, and sometimes even farcical they may be, but they are also capable of great pathos, often branching off to end tragically. It is this skilful and affecting blend of tragedy and comedy, of tears and laughter, which make Maupassant’s Normandy Stories the enduring favourites they are today.
