About this product
- DescriptionThis book provides a comprehensive look at the obsessive theme of crime, which is most evident in the context of dysfunctional family relationships, in Guy de Maupassant's nearly 300 short works. A study of the narrative structures points to the presence of a jury-like atmosphere throughout, highlights an inherent thematic unity in a fragmentary genre, and details an artistics sophistication on the part of an author whose works have only recently begun to receive this type of critical re-examination in the scholarship of nineteenth-century French literature.
- Author BiographyThe Author: Mary L. Poteau-Tralie is an assistant professor of French in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Rider University, Lawrenceville, New Jersey. She received her Ph.D. in 1991 in Romance Languages and Literatures from Princeton University.
