In The Foreign Soul we are in classic Maupassant territory. Robert Mariolle, a wealthy Parisian bachelor, has just arrived in the fashionable spa town of Aix-les-Bains determined to enjoy himself at... More > the casino in the company of high society, attempting to get over his break up with mistress, Henriette Lambel. The Angelus was intended to be Maupassant’s great masterpiece, an ambitious inverted allegory of Christianity into which the author would pour his growing pessimism and despair.

Here are the first English translations of Maupassant’s two unfinished novels, The Foreign Soul [L’Ame étrangère] and The Angelus [L’Angélus], together with full critical apparatus, including secondary sources outlining Maupassant’s future plot ideas and an essay on The Foreign Soul by Paul Bourget.< Less
