Maupassant, Guy de: Bel Ami, v.1, 4 August 2008.
Guy de Maupassant (1850–1893)
Bel Ami or The History of a Scoundrel: A Novel
With two illustrations from the first edition of 1885 (Paris: Ollendorf): drawings by Ferdinand Bac, engraved by G. Lemoine.
Georges Duroy, a former non-commissioned officer in the French army in Algeria, endeavours to become a successful Parisian journalist by manipulating a succession of mistresses.
NB Madam Broshkina has uploaded a version of this novel, but we have made some different formatting decisions. The Madam has preferred straight quotes, no accents and US English. I have restored accents, italics and curly quotes, and used UK English. So there is a choice.
We have used the same anonymous translation. Unfortunately, it is heavily abridged (though this is not mentioned by the translator). If a better one becomes available I will replace this one.
