Pierre et Jean is set in Le Havre in the 1880s and is notable for its evocation of the Normandy coastline captured by the Impressionists. But Maupassant's greatest achievement is to have woven from this simple plot in a maritime context a brilliantly crafted exploration of the complexities at theheart of family life.

Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant was a popular 19th-century French writer. He is one of the fathers of the modern short story.

I IMMENSELY enjoyed reading Maupassant's novel 'Pierre and Jean', a story of two brothers whose jealousy of each other shakes the family's foundations. The French author wrote 13 books of short stories and six novels. This is his fourth novel and probably his best. Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant was a popular 19th-century French writer.

The story of how one family's harmony is shattered by unexpected good fortune and how each character reacts. Told with great psychological insight.

The book was great....Thank you!

Title says it all. There is no formatting or anything inside the "book." It is just a generic terrible cover, it's oversized, about 2-3 times the size of a paperback book, and it's just a pdf of the book, printed out and stuck inside a cover. Absolutely terrible, do not buy.

The text presented here is a disgrace, replete with typographical errors, and missing entire paragraphs on p.80. I would have returned it except that I had already written notes on it. Do not buy this edition.

Adler's Foreign Books is one of the best book vendors available on Amazon. They ship quickly, package carefully, and quickly make it right if you have any problem whatsoever. I will always shop at Adler's!

Pierre et Jean runs only 146 pages in my edition. Maupassant appended a 14 page commentary at the front on "Le Roman," apparently to head off criticism that it was only a short story and not a novel. In this section he characterized the book as a "psychological story" rather than an adventure or a mystery. The book does a great job of contrasting the different personalities of the two brothers Pierre and Jean.

Maupassant's plot devices are the powerful life events that work best for this purpose: deaths, engagements, affairs, births, jobs lost and jobs found. Though he promises not to use devious vocabulary to enhance his reputation as a writer of 'literature', I found ...well I wish I had found... a number of his words that were missing from my heretofore reliable dictionary. He also made good on his promise to choose words that made use of more than one sense of meaning to produce genuinely impressive descriptions. Maupassant deserves a lot of credit for making an essentially descriptive and 'literary' work grip the reader's attention.

(General comment w/r/t various editions: Amazon seems to lump all the editions together. Mine was published in Paris by Flammarion, an eminently readable edition.)
These two small texts, an essay about the (technique of the) novel and the story "Pierre and Jean', are the works of a genius.

The novel has to be artless
The object of the novel is life which is `made of the most differing, unforeseen, contradictory, ill-assorted things; it is brutal, arbitrary, disconnected, full of inexplicable, illogical and contradictory disasters.'
The aim of the novel is not to tell a story, to amuse or touch our hearts, but to force us to think and understand the profound, hidden meaning of events. The author must put his work together in such a skillful, hidden and apparently artless way that it should be impossible to perceive his plan and intentions. He must demonstrate how people are modified through the influence of circumstances, how feelings and passions develop, how people struggle in all sorts of social environments, how interests clash. The psychology of the characters should be concealed behind the events of life.

Pierre and Jean
This formidable short story is a perfect example of de Maupassant's theory of the novel.
Its central subject is parental doubt, provoked by an unexpected event: an old friend leaves his entire fortune to a member of a family.
The writing is ingeniously elliptic: the boat which enters the port at the beginning of the story leaves it at the end under totally different circumstances.
The images are brilliant: `a short, round man, round through having rolled over the seven seas, whose ideas seemed round like pebbles on the shore.' `All those multicolored dresses, covering the sand like beds of flowers, these gaudy sunshades, the seductive art of gesture, voice and smile, the coquetry displayed on this beach, suddenly were revealed to him as an immense flowering of female perversity.'
The endless stream of revelations, of emotionally charged personal confrontations and of the dramatic psychological shocks, ultimately uncovers the es(sense) of life, the passion of love, for an individual human being.
This sublime text is a must read for all lovers of world literature.
