Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.Guy de Maupassant is one of the few writers whose short stories&#151;witty, economical, elegant, yet straightforward in style&#151;are so forceful that his literary reputation can rest on them alone. Beneath their deceptively simple surfaces lies a deep understanding of the complexities of the human psyche. Maupassant explores the full panoply of late-nineteenth-century French society, from prostitutes in Parisian brothels and peasants in rural cottages, to adulterous aristocrats at expensive spas and patrician parties.<P class=MsoNormal>This collection begins with &#147;Ball-of-Fat, the first story Maupassant published under his own name. Called a masterpiece by his friend and mentor Gustave Flaubert, it instantly raised the young author to celebrity status and created a clamor for more of his work. He responded with over three hundred stories (and six novels) written in a dozen years. Among others included here are the favorites &#147;The Necklace, &#147;The Horla, &#147;The False Gems, and &#147;Useless Beauty.<P class=MsoNormal>Richard Fusco received his Ph.D. from Duke University and is Associate Professor of English at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. A specialist in nineteenth-century American literature and in short-story narrative theory, his published criticism includes Maupassant and the American Short Story: The Influence of Form at the Turn of the Century and Fin de mill&#233;naire: Poe's Legacy for the Detective Story

Poems by Hermann Hesse( Book )

5 editions published between 1973 and 1981 in German and Undetermined and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few American readers seem to be aware that Hermann Hesse, author of the epic novels Steppenwolf and Siddhartha, among many others, also wrote poetry, the best of which the poet James Wright has translated and included in this book. This is a special volume'filled with short, direct poems about love, death, loneliness, the seasons'that is imbued with some of the imagery and feeling of Hesse's novels but that has a clarity and resonance all its own, a sense of longing for love and for home that is both deceptively simple and deeply moving

Unterm Rad beschreibt das Schicksal eines begabten Kindes, dem der Ehrgeiz seines Vaters und der Lokalpatriotismus seiner Heimatstadt eine Rolle aufnötigen, die Ihm nicht entspricht und es 'unters Rad' drängt. "Schreibend der Jugend die Würde zu geben, die ihr im Leben verweigert wurde", notiert Peter Handke nach der Lektüre in sein Tagebuch, während Arthur Eloesser 1906 die Erstausgabe mit den Worten begrüßte: "Der Roman enthält ungefähr eine Anleitung für Eltern, Vormünder und Lehrer, wie man einen begabten jungen Menschen am zweckmäßigsten zugrunde richtet." Neben Robert Musils Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törless ist 'Unterm Rad' die nachhaltigste Anklage gegen das starre Erziehungsritual zu Beginn des Industriezeltalters
