A man of arms and of letters, Maupassant was a French short-story writer and novelist known for his naturalistic treatment of his subject matter. A Cock Crowed, A Coward, A Normandy Joke and A Parricide are contained in this book. These short stories show clearly the writing style of Maupassant. They were built around simple episodes from everyday life, which revealed the hidden sides of people. The readers can learn a deep life lesson from the stories, and aslo were attracted by the neatly worked-out plots.

本集包含了“短篇小说之王”莫泊桑的四本短篇小说。《公鸡报晓》讲述了贝尔特夫人与男爵之间爱情与互相疏远的故事。《懦夫》描写的是一位子爵因害怕输点比赛而饱受内心煎熬,最终开枪自杀了。《诺曼底人的玩笑》描述了在一对诺曼底新人的大婚之日,新郎却在新婚之夜被同伴玩弄了一把的故事。《杀父母的人》讲述了一对夫妇平时对一个木匠非常照顾,给他很多生意做,但却被这个木匠杀害了。

He is famous for clever plotting and realistic art in displaying his subject. This book contains four short stories of him: A Cock Crowed, A Coward, A Normandy Joke and A Parricide.

莫泊桑,19世纪后半期法国优秀的批判现实主义作家。莫泊桑早就有神经痛的征兆,但他长期顽强地与病魔斗争,坚持写作,巨大的劳动强度与未曾收敛的放荡生活使他逐渐病入膏肓,于1893年7月6日逝世,享年43岁。莫泊桑一生创作了6部长篇小说和359篇中短篇小说,还有三部游记,被誉为“短篇小说之王”。

Guy de Maupassant ( 5 August 1850 – 6 July 1893) was a popular French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's finest exponents. Maupassant was a protégé of Flaubert and his stories are characterized by economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouements (outcomes). Many are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s, describing the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught up in events beyond their control, are permanently changed by their experiences. He wrote some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. His first published story, "Boule de Suif" ("Ball of Fat", 1880), is often considered his masterpiece.

德阿旺塞尔夫人的丈夫像往常一样什么也没看见,什么也不知道。据说他不和妻子住在一起,因为他体弱多病,德阿旺塞尔夫人因为这一点无法原谅丈夫。德阿旺塞尔夫人的丈夫腿短,胳膊短,脖子短,鼻子短,总之是个一切都短还秃顶的矮胖子。而德阿旺塞尔夫人却完全不同,是一个身材高挑、深色皮肤、意志坚决的少妇。当丈夫公然叫她“主妇夫人”时,她会当着丈夫的面放声大笑。但对待她的爱慕者——约瑟夫·德克罗瓦萨尔男爵时,她则有些含情脉脉。拥有爵位的男爵有着宽阔的肩膀、强壮的体格和漂亮的小胡子。

Monsieur d'Avancelles, her husband, saw nothing and knew nothing, as usual. It was said that he lived apart from his wife on account of physical weakness, for which Madame d'Avancelles would not pardon him. He was a short, stout, bald man, with short arms, legs, neck, nose and everything else, while Madame d'Avancelles, on the contrary, was a tall, dark and determined young woman, who laughed in her husband's face with sonorous laughter, while he called her openly Mrs. Housewife, who looked at the broad shoulders, strong build and fair moustaches of her titled admirer, Baron Joseph de Croissard, with a certain amount of tenderness.
