Selección, traducción y Prólogo de Silvia Grau.

El estilo de los cuentos fantásticos de Guy de Maupassant (Francia, 1850-1893) es sobrio, lineal, naturalista. Su pasión por el análisis y por el género narrativo breve, en forma de relatos detectivescos, se revela en la creación de atmósferas donde la noción de lo inquietante convive con lo cotidiano, aunque escape a la razón

Ωραίες ιστορίες γεμάτες θλίψη και μελαγχολία. Παρ’όλα αυτα γεμάτες νόημα και ο τρόπος γραφής του Guy de Maupassant είναι καταπληκτικός.
Spiegel
Da minha resenha do Bookcrossing de 2009:

Peguei esse para ler porque é fininho e o Maupassant é um daqueles autores que aparecem nas listas para ler antes de bater as botas. Contém:

O Lobo
Magnetismo
O Medo
A Aparição
A Mãe dos Monstros
Carta de um Louco
Um Caso de Divórcio
O Horla (primeira e segunda versões)
A Morta (achei o final dessa ótimo)
O Homem de Marte (eu pensava que esse autor era mais antigo e me surpreendi ao dar com um conto de ficção científica. Interessante que nessa época de pr

Non ricordo se questo ne fa parte, in ogni caso uno dei migliori. Il racconto ambientato nella guerra franco prussiana. DUE AMICI Parigi era bloccata, affamata, rantolante. Sui tetti i passeri diminuivano e le fogne si stavano spopolando. Si mangiava qualsiasi cosa. In una limpida mattinata di gennaio Morissot, orologiaio di professione e guardia nazionale per necessit, stava passeggiando tristemente sul boulevard di circonvallazione, con le mani nelle tasche dei calzoni della divisa e la panc ...more

Η αλήθεια είναι πως όταν αγαπάς πολύ εναν συγγραφέα, δεν μπορείς να είσαι 100% αντικειμενικός/ή.
Ευτυχώς μέχρι τώρα με τον Μωπασάν δε χρειάστηκε κιόλας.
Η γνωστή μελαγχολία του είναι διάχυτη σε αυτές τις ιστοριούλες, όπως και είναι ξεκάθαρος ο τρόπος με τον οποίο ο Πόε επηρεάστηκε απο αυτές.
Τόσο που σε κάποιο σημείο σχεδόν μπερδεύτηκα...
Ιστοριούλες λίγο τρομακτικές, λίγο μαγικές, πολύ μελαγχολικές. Το φαντασμα της μοναξιάς και της τρέλας που κυνηγούσε τον συγγραφέα, διάχυτο σχεδόν στην καθεμία απ

έχει κάτι το μελαγχολικό που με σκλαβώνει ο Maupassant..
Ζει σε ένα δικό του πλανήτη που άπαξ και προσαράξεις, δεν θες με τίποτα να τον αποχωριστείς.
Πολύ μου άρεσε.

Il fantastico, per Maupassant, non consiste nella intrusione di fenomeni straordinari in una realtà “normale”: come è stato detto, anzi, esso "nasce da tutto ciò che rode l'uomo, vuoi originato da forze esterne o interne, e che alla fine ne svuota la coscienza per mezzo dell'angoscia".
I vari racconti hanno come tema principale la paura, la morte, la pazzia…per l’autore l'origine di tutti i timori che sconvolgono la mente e la vita di molti protagonisti nei suoi racconti si rintraccia in cio’ che

Buena colección de cuentos cortos, aunque cabe aclarar que se trata de literatura del siglo XIX, y el estilo en el que están escritos no siempre es fácil de leer. Algunos de ellos han envejecido mejor que otros -aunque esto mismo debe de ser testimonio de lo buenos que eran originalmente, ya que la razón por la que algunas de éstas historias se sienten ya cansadas, es por haber sido repetidas y reinventadas una y otra vez por mucha gente, en muchos medios (literatura, cine, radio, TV...), a lo l ...more

Lo describiría como relatos de locura desde la perspectiva del "loco". Buena lectura cuando no es necesaria gran concentración y no se dispone de mucho tiempo. Cuando estas "loco", ¿qué es real?
