Bel-Ami de Maupassant
For the first edition of this lesson, we will enter the wonderful world of Guy de Maupassant.
The novel tells the story of a man named Georges Duroy, a former French soldier who begins the novel as a penniless railroad worker. Georges rises through the ranks as a journalist and rises through society thanks to the help of his bosses wife, who helps him write his articles. Eventually, Georges marries the woman after his boss dies.
Unfortunately, he is not happy in the marriage and begins seeing other women behind her back. In the end, Georges marries a wealthy young woman but ends the story wishing to get his mistress back.
The story of “Bel Ami” was intended by de Maupassant to display what he deemed to be the classlessness of the world of French journalism at the time. The novel continues to be viewed as a classic of French literature today and one of de Maupassant’s most famous novels.
Here is one of many adaptations of Bel-ami on the big screen :
