Guy de Maupassant, chronicler of manners and of literary life

By Angela das Neves

Abstract

Entre querelas, polêmicas e questões candentes levantadas por Guy de Maupassant em seus artigos, o jovem escritor normando impôs-se no cenário jornalístico parisiense como um cronista dileto. De comentarista de ocasião acolaborador internacional durante a guerra colonialista na Argélia, o autor de “Boule de Suif” ascendeu profissionalmente por meio da venda semanal de artigose contos para jornais parisienses. Ainda que sua contística permaneça hoje como a parte mais relevante de sua obra, sua contribuição como cronista para periódicos não deve ser desprezada. Ela compreendeu quinze anos de sua produção literária, de 1876 a 1891, e resultou em mais de duzentos textos, sobre assuntos variados, entre eles a própria literatura.Abstract: Among the disputes, polemics and fiery issues raised by Guy de Maupassant in his articles, the young Norman writer has imposed himself in the Parisian journalism scene as a beloved chronicler. From occasional contributor to international contributing editor during the colonial war in Algeria, the author of “Boule de Suif” grew professionally through the weekly sale of articles and short stories for Parisian newspapers. Although his tales remain nowadays as the most important part of his work, his contributions as a columnist for periodicals should not be neglected. It includes fifteen years of his literary production, from 1876 to 1891, and resulted in more than two hundred texts on various subjects including literature
