Bola de sebo, que muchos creen es uno de los mejores cuentos de Maupassant, fue publicado originalmente en una coleccion dirigida por Zola y es un ataque a la moral burguesa que acepta que una mujer se entregue para salvarlos a todos, pero despues por haberse entregado es mirada con desprecio. Igualmente esta El collar con su sorpresivo desenlace y el tierno Padre de Simon, ademas de otra serie de cuentos que son testimonio de la grandeza del autor.

This is one of the best stories by Maupassant. It was published originally as a part of a collection directed by Zola, and it is an attack on bourgeois double standards that accept that a woman gives herself to save others, but after having done so, she is spurned. Also included is The Necklace with its surprising ending and the tender The Father of Simon, in addition to other stories that bear witness to the talent of the author.

About the Author
Author Guy de Maupassant

Guy de Maupassant (1850–1893) was a popular nineteenth-century French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form’s finest exponents. A protégé of Flaubert, his stories are characterized by their economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouement. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s, and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. He authored some three hundred short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse.
