HalÚvy, Ludovic: Parisian Points of View, v.1, 19 July 2008.
Translated by Edith V.B. Matthews. With Introduction by Brander Matthews (1894).
Ludovic HalÚvy (1834-1908) wrote the libretto for Offenbach’s ‘Orpheus in the Underworld’ (the one with the can-can). This is a collection of Parisian sketches, which are good-humoured and yet ironic, and which may appeal to those who like Maupassant’s short stories.
