THE SHORT STORIES OF GUY DE MAUPASSANT Boule de Suif, At Sea, Rust, An Old Man, The Piece of String

by | Read by Charlton Griffin

Classics • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1880

The one long story ("Boule de Suif") and four short ones on these tapes perfectly illustrate de Maupassant's lyrical yet somber view of life as a morality play in which virtue seldom triumphs. Englishman Charlton Griffin brings a classically trained voice to the readings. His rhythm conveys the varying emotional atmospheres beautifully, and each character has a distinct voice. Although their accents are English instead of French, they match the personalities and backgrounds of the original French characters. These are classic short stories done classically. R.E.K.
