Author Bio
Guy De Maupassant
Maupassant was born into a family of wealthy landowners; his father was a prosperous stockbroker. His parents separated when he was 11. Through his mother--a friend of Flaubert--he met such writers as Turgenev, Zola, and Daudet, but was initially more interested in athletics and outdoor pursuits than in writing. After a stint in the army and as a civil servant, however, he began to write poetry, but soon realized prose was his true m?tier. His first short story appeared in 1880 and was an immediate success. In his lifetime, Maupassant published more than 30 volumes of work, including short stories (for which he was most celebrated), novels, plays, and travel essays. His first novel, "A Woman's Life", was censored in France for its frank depiction of a woman's inner torments; for that reason, in addition to its literary merits, it was extremely popular and profitable. Maupassant contracted venereal disease, which made him increasingly unstable mentally, and by 1890 he was too incapacitated to write. He became partially paralyzed, was subject to hallucinations, made a failed suicide attempt, and finally died at the age of 42.
