Product Description

Review

'there is no doubt that the French-born Merimee was one of the earlier masters of the short story' Cape Times

'A very good edition and a solid translation.' Dr Lance Butler, University of Stirling

About the Author

1803 - 1870. Auteur de supercheries litteraires ("Theatre de Clara Gazul, " 1825; "la Guzla, " 1827), de romans historiques ("Chronique du regne de CharlesIX, " 1829), il doit sa celebrite a ses nouvelles ("Mateo Falcone, " 1829; "Tamango; la Venus d'Ille; Colomba, " 1840; "Carmen"; "la Chambre bleue"). Inspecteur des Monuments historiques, il fut, sous l'Empire, un des familiers des souverains. Il traduisit alors les ecrivains russes. Romantique par le choix des sujets et le gout de la couleur locale, Merimee appartient a l'art classique par la concision de son style. (Academie francaise.)

A good novella, didn't read the others in the collection, but I liked merimee's style of writing. Its not difficult or overly esoteric.
