Merimee's most famous work is the novella Carmen, a story about jealousy and unfaithfulness. It inspired George Bizet's world-famous Opera-Comique. Some 50 movie adaptations have been made from the story, several of which are filmings of the opera.

Merimee was one of the greatest names of the romantic movement in France. Passionate, destructive love was his subject in many short stories.

The other stories in this collection demonstrate Prosper Merimee's amazing versatility. In Mateo Falcone a Corsican's conception of honor forces him to exact a ruthless revenge; The Storming of the Redoubt describes an incident in Napoleon's 1812 Russian campaign. In The Venus of Ille he produces an unforgettable story of supernatural horror.

    " I just started reading Carmen today even though it has been on my shelf for over four years. It's a great story and I cannot put it down. Then again I like the opera, so it is fun to see the original story. READ IT! "

    " Well, if you can't read French this won't work for you. But maybe you'll want to look Merimee up in English. He writes some great short stories (nouvelles) that are meant to seem as though they could have been true stories. Twist endings nearly every time. "
