Love and Death, Unity and Doubling in the Novels of Maupassant, by Bertrand Logan Ball, is a systematic treatment of Maupassant's use of doubling in his six novels. Discussing the novels in chronological order, Ball demonstrates how Maupassant delineates double characters, plots, points of view, situations, and themes - ambition, death, jealousy, and love. At the same time, Ball shows how the worlds of business, nature, politics, and society are correlated by Maupassant with the characters.
Contents: This book is about Maupassant's use of double characters, plots, points of view, situations, and themes - ambition, death, jealousy, love - and his correlation of characters with their environments.
