Lorsque son mari lui annonce qu’ils sont invités à un bal, Mathilde Loisel se désole : elle n’a ni bijoux ni robe à porter. Une amie lui prête un collier, et Mathilde oublie, le temps d’une soirée, sa vie morne de femme d’employé. Mais de retour chez elle, la parure n’est plus à son cou. Pour remplacer et rendre le collier, les Loisel contractent une dette qu’ils mettront une vie entière à rembourser. Jusqu’au jour où Mathilde, rendue méconnaissable par les épreuves, croise son amie qui lui fait une terrible révélation... « Aux champs », « Le Papa de Simon », « À cheval », « Une famille », « Mon oncle Jules », « Le donneur d’eau bénite », « Adieu », « La rempailleuse » : dans les neuf nouvelles de ce recueil, Maupassant s’exerce au récit réaliste et à l’art de la chute.

Yvette is the daughter of a courtesan who serves men of wealth and status. She seems to be oblivious of how her mother makes money and why they are always in the presence of princes, dukes and barons. Only when she goes away to a holiday at the river, she realizes that the Baron Saval is engaging her mother in such activities and she suddenly feels dirty. She wants to get away from her fate and so tries to inveigle her mother into the idea of living as honest women. However, the Marquise refuses, and explains that they would never be able to survive as working women. That their life of luxury would be so horrifically reduced. Yvette seems to suddenly have no choice. She must kill herself. Through chloroform. So, she goes from pharmacist to pharmacist and collects small vials of it and eventually has a sufficient amount. Before she commits the act, she runs around the town with her mother's guests, making them silly things such as pretending to go to war, riding children's horses, making army noises. Instead of killing herself through chloroform, she accidentally induces a psychedelic trip, and she decides not to kill herself, but keeps on inducing trips instead. It was greatly described, the way she was so resolute on dying, and how quickly she changed her mind to just get high.

C'est dans un Paris fin XIXe que nous entraîne ici Maupassant, dans la capitale des plaisirs et des rencontres où se nouent des drames intimes : passions fatales, espoirs déçus, aventures joyeuses qui, soudain, tournent à la tragédie, malentendus, trahisons. Avec un-réalisme dur que tempèrent les images tendres et poétiques de la ville lumière, Maupassant, sans jamais prendre parti, évoque dans ces nouvelles, des femmes et des hommes pris dans les filets d'un destin rarement maîtrisé.

"The Piece of String" is a short story by Guy de Maupassant. Henri Rene Albert Guy de Maupassant (5 August 1850 - 6 July 1893) was a popular 19th-century French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's finest exponents. A protege of Flaubert, Maupassant's stories are characterized by their economy of style and efficient, effortless denouements. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. He authored some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. His first published story "Boule de Suif" ("Ball of Fat," 1880) is often considered his masterpiece. He delighted in clever plotting, and served as a model for Somerset Maugham and O. Henry in this respect. His stories about expensive jewellery ("The Necklace," "La parure") are imitated with a twist by Maugham ("Mr Know-All," "A String of Beads") and Henry James ("Paste"). Taking his cue from Balzac, Maupassant wrote comfortably in both the high-Realist and fantastic modes; stories and novels such as "L'Heritage" and Bel-Ami aim to recreate Third Republic France in a realistic way, whereas many of the short stories (notably "Le Horla" and "Qui sait?") describe apparently supernatural phenomena. The supernatural in Maupassant, however, is often implicitly a symptom of the protagonists' troubled minds; Maupassant was fascinated by the burgeoning discipline of psychiatry, and attended the public lectures of Jean-Martin Charcot between 1885 and 1886. This interest is reflected in his fiction. Maupassant is notable as the subject of one of Leo Tolstoy's essays on art: The Works of Guy de Maupassant. Friedrich Nietzsche's autobiography mentions him in the following text: "I cannot at all conceive in which century of history one could haul together such inquisitive and at the same time delicate psychologists as one can in contemporary Paris: I can name as a sample - for their number is by no means small, ... or to pick out one of the stronger race, a genuine Latin to whom I am particularly attached, Guy de Maupassant."

Même si le sujet date un peu et que le regard que porte Maupassant sur la population algérienne fait un peu frémir... ce texte nous fait voyager. Sa petite incursion en Bretagne est tout aussi envoûtante. Un détour par les fonderies du Creusot nous projette dans la dureté de ce monde. L'industrie de la fonderie elle n'a pas dû beaucoup changé.
