In the sun

by Guy de Maupassant

Publication Date: 02/04/2019


Maupassant traveller, Maupassant poet, Maupassant traveller-poet, traveller who has travelled through Normandy, Brittany, the French Riviera, Auvergne and Italy, Algeria and Tunisia, the plains and mountains, the desert and rivers, the sea and all the waters that he likes to feel and touch... And then, walk, sail, see and tell to write while furnishing your solitude.

A rich harvest of landscapes, portraits, anecdotes, captured in a prose that seems easy to read, but close to the reader: "I still have to ask forgiveness for having spoken about myself. I had written this journal of daydreams for myself alone, or rather, I had taken advantage of my floating solitude to stop wandering ideas that cross our minds like birds. Maybe I'm wrong.

It is the man who discovers himself with his solitary melancholy, the life he discovers in his sites and portraits.

By the late 1870s, he began to develop the first signs of syphilis, and in 1891 he was committed to an asylum in Paris, having tried to commit suicide. He died there two years later.
