Alphonse Daudet

$ 3.99

A master of French Naturalism, the nineteenth century novelist Alphonse Daudet is chiefly remembered today as the author of sentimental tales of provincial life in the south of France. Unlike his fellow Naturalists, Daudet upheld that the world in its diversity was misrepresented by novelists that concentrated only on its bleaker aspects. He is celebrated for his objective interest in external detail, as well as his compassionate personality and his reverence for the mystery of all things and individuals. Daudet tempers his satire with pity, drawing comparisons in style to the works of Dickens and Maupassant. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Daudet’s complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and bonus material. (Version 1)
