These six riveting fantasy classics from the golden age of the French short story will keep you glued to your chair. Drawn from the genre's outstanding nineteenth-century writers, they range from the Romantic era to the rise of the Symbolists and Decadents. Presented chronologically by date of publication, they include Charles Nodier's "Trilby; or, The Elf of Argyll," Théophile Gautier's "The Amorous Dead Woman," "The Venus of Ille" by Prosper Mérimée, Villiers de l'Isle-Adam's "Second Sight," and two tales by Guy de Maupassant, "A Divorce Case" and "Who Knows?"
This dual-language book features accurate new English translations on pages facing the original French, an informative introduction, and explanatory footnotes. It opens a door for students of French language and literature—well as any other lover of fantasy—to explore the world of the eerie and unknown.
