Guy de Maupassant was a French author who lived in the period 1850-1893. He is best known for his short stories but he also wrote novels, travel books and poems. His work depicts human lives and social conditions, but often through a pessimistic point of view. His first publication "The Dumpling" (1880) is considered to be one of his masterpieces. Other works by Guy de Maupassant include "Mother Savage", "Bel-Ami" and "The Tellier House". He wrote over 300 short stories during lifetime and as such is called "the father of the modern short story".
