Asmile hovered about his lips at the recollection of an escapade whichhad cost three men their lives, a foray which had given his twocomrades and himself seventy fowls, two sheep, money, and something tolaugh about for six months. The culprits were never found; indeed, theywere not sought for, the Arab being looked upon as the soldier's prey.

Guy de Maupassant was a popular French writer in the 19th century. He was one of the first writers to write short stories. Many of his stories were set during the Franco-Prussian war. His stories show the futility of war and war's effects on the innocent. Bel Ami, published in 1885, is the story of journalist Georges Duroy. In my opinion, Duroy is no more of a scoundrel than the women who love him. The least attractive thing that he does is to marry a young, nieve girl in the end. He is experienced enough to allow this young girl all of the time that she needs to become a women. He is patient and willing to spoil her until she comes around to his way of thinking.

Exploring his world, Guy de Maupassant stretches the scope of the novel form. This book, which sympathetically treats its heroine's journey from innocent girlhood through the disillusionment of an unfortunate marriage and ends with her subsequent widowhood, records what Maupassant had observed as a child, the little dramas and daily preoccupations of ordinary people. Bel-Ami, the amiable but amoral hero of the novel, has become a standard literary personification of an ambitious opportunist. Pierre et Jean is the tale of a man's tragic jealousy of his half-brother, who is the child of their mother's adultery.

Though firmly set in 1880s Paris, Maupassant's gripping story of an amoral journalist on the make could, with only slight modifications of detail, be updated to the 1960s, to the Reagan-Thatcher years, or maybe to the present day. Anti-hero Georges Duroy is a down-at-heel ex-soldier of no particular talent.

Bel Ami was the second published novel by French writer Guy de Maupassant. The novel's hero, journalist Georges Duroy, rises from his humble beginnings to become one of the most powerful men in Paris. He works his way to the top by carefully choosing and manipulating powerful and wealthy mistresses.

Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a popular 19th-century French writer. He is one of the fathers of the modern short story. As a protégé of Flaubert, his short stories are characterized by their economy of style and their efficient effortless dénouement. In 1880 he published his first masterpiece, Boule de Suif, which Flaubert characterized it as "a masterpiece that will endure. " This was Maupassant's first piece of short fiction and was followed by short stories such as Deux Amis (1882) and Mademoiselle Fifi (1882). He also wrote six short novels. A number of his stories often denote the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught, emerge changed - many are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s. In his novels, he concentrated all his observations scattered in his short stories. His second novel was Bel-Ami; or, The History of a Scoundrel, which came out in 1885. His other works include: La Maison Tellier (1881), Une Vie (1883), Miss Harriet (1884), Mont-Oriol (1887), Pierre et Jean (1888), Fort Comme la Mort (1889) and Notre Coeur (1890).
