Guy de Maupassant is considered by most literary historians to be the greatest short story writer who ever lived, in any century. When it comes to just telling a great story, he was the best, couldn't be topped. Nobody who reads a great Maupassant story will soon forget it.

Maupassant's strength of style and treatment of the subject lies in classic simplicity, clarity, and objective calm. Maupassant is a modern exemplar of traditional French psychological realism; he portrays his characters as unhappy victims of their greed, desire, or vanity but presents even the most sordid details of their lives without sermonizing.

Maupassant was considered shocking in his time because he wrote about prostitutes and adultery in frank and unashamed terms. He was ahead of his time in that way. Some of his stories are also Horror Fiction.
