Guy de Maupassant, The successful author #52 [Keystone - ENG 1]
Interpretato da: A. M.
Motto: The spoken word dazzles and deceives because it is expressed by the face, because it is seen coming out of the lips, and lips are attractive and eyes seduce. But black words on white paper are like a soul laid bare.
Group: Artists and intellectuals
Teaser: When he turned fourteen years old, his mother proposedto gift to Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant, Marquis Gustave Albert's eldest son, a ball party that marked his entry into society. Young Guy, who had nothing but a scornful lack of interest for Society, begged her to give him a boat instead. His mother consented, and he spent the summer rowing in solitude on the waters of the Seine and composing verses.
Since then twenty-four years have passed. Guy now owns a much larger boat he named ''Bel Ami'' in honor of his most famous novel, which has already reached the thirty-seventh reprint. Only partly has he changed his mind about society, yet he cynically takes advantage of it for his own success. He fiercely despises banal conformist bourgeoisie. He admires artists of considerable merit, the audacious, and indeed all who stand at the far ends of the social chain: the lowest wretches and pleasure-seeking nobles. And most of all he loves beautiful women, for whom he writes: ''Pleasure to women! This is the desire burning almost in everyone. To be with all the might of his talent a man of exception, admired, adulated, loved, able to pick almost at his pleasure those fruits of living flesh we are hungry for.''
Relations: He associates with Candide Artoise, whose loyalty in serving, as well as company, he appreciates. He has maintained correspondence with Paolo Valera. Miriam Alexandrine de Rothschild invited him several times to her literary salon, but for now the offer has not had a follow up. He met Mary Shaw at the thermal baths and would not disdain to deepen the acquaintance. Leonard Warren-Hopkins agreed to treat the migraines Maupassant terribly suffers under. A good acquaintance with Gabriel Wooster, whom he must have come across in some parlor around Europe. He is fascinated by curious stories, and immediately identified as such Gaetano Osculati's, whom he knows by reputation through common friends. He has seen Madame Poisson La Ferté in the circles of the Parisian aristocracy.
