    Existen al menos dos versiones de este cuento y son bastante diferentes en el formato, m s que en el argumento Digo al menos porque se considera que el cuento Carta de un loco es, en realidad, la primera versi n de las otras dos ay, qu l o Existen varias similitudes entre los tres cuentos, porque todos tienen como protagonista a un demente que percibe una presencia Como tambi n le Carta , me pareci bien hacerle un espacio y comentarlo muy brevemente Carta de un loco 1885, ser a la primer sima ve [...]

    4.0 Read this for school It was amazing to read these three stories The first one got published in 1885 and is only ten pages long The second one is named Le Horla and is the first version of this name, written in 1886 The last one is the final, most famous and longest version It has the same name as the previous one It was really interesting to see how Guy de Maupassant develops and changes his story and that s why I liked it There are some parts that are the same which is fun.The only thing wa [...]

    The Horla is a very short psychological horror story about a man who becomes convinced that an invisible being seemingly ghost like, but also compared within the narrative to a vampire is quietly terrorising him, invading his bedroom at night, driving him mad This creature, the Horla , drives him to increasingly irrational and extreme action as he seeks to destroy its hold over him I saw a lot of parallels between this story and Charlotte Perkins Gilman s The Yellow Wallpaper, published five yea [...]

    Guy de Maupassant a quien admiro, realmente , escribi m s de 300 cuentos y no acostumbraba a encasillarse en un g nero, m s all de ser un protegido de Zol y Flaubert y un alto exponente del realismo y del naturalismo, ten a una t cnica brillante para elaborar sus cuentos El Horla, un cuento sobre la locura, y, tal vez, su mejor cuento, tiene para m , connotaciones autobiogr ficas Era un talento para este tipo de cuentos, ya que l sufri un proceso de este tipo en carne propia No olvidemos que ya [...]

    I listened to the audio first, and followed up by reading through the print It would have been a different experience if I d flipped the two, because once I hit halfway I definitely wanted to skip to the end I almost always feel that way about horror stories, though So much time and energy spent on describing something atmospheric or suspenseful and I just want to get on with it That may say about me than about the story As horror stories go this is grouped with ghost stories, but to me it is [...]

    Entre raison et folie, Maupassant nous fait vraiment entrer dans la t te du h ros qui maintient le doute sur l existence r elle du Horla Il est primordial de rappeler qu il a crit cette nouvelle une p riode de sa vie o la folie commenc e l emporter d j Le style d criture est captivant, d une grande originalit.

    Relecture Reread Review only in FR Une bonne relecture Maupassant parvient avec brio nous relater la lente descente aux enfers d un homme lui vers la folie L ambiance est oppressante et l emploi du je ainsi que la forme de journal intime nous met dans la t te du personnage principal R sultats Malaise et questionnement On veut sortir de son corps tout en voulant en savoir plus Redoutable mais efficace nouvelle d stabilisante, style parfaitement ma tris Maupassant en somme quelques petites longueu [...]

    Old school horror story It reminds me of The Double by Dostoevsky.

    Desde hace bastante tiempo ten a ganas de leer algo de Maupassant pero no se me hab a presentado la oportunidad y ahora que pude hacerlo no puedo negar que lo disfrut Una historia dedicada a la desesperaci n humana con toques sobrenaturales, que te pone a pensar en qu o qui n est detr s de esta extra a situaci n.

    Great collection of one of my favorite stories this edition has two previous versions Maupassant composed from different points of view, before settling on the final text it s interesting how the new understandings opened up by the sciences at the time 19th century the actual scale of natural processes and our small scope in them and ability to understand them can be interpreted by some in the culture as positive, while others like de Maupassant The Horla , Ambrose Bierce The Damned Thing and Fi [...]

    I am a big Guy de Maupassant fan, this was nowhere near what I expected A haunting, psychological horror story of a descent into madness Really well done by MHP too with an earlier version and some notes Just a pleasant surprise.

    This was the biggest surprise in the collection of nine Maupassant stories that I read All that I d read by the great writer so far were simple, intimate stories drawing out wry drama from small town life to see his name on a full blooded horror story seemed completely odd, but it turned out to be a literary surprise of the best kind This increasingly unsettling story about a man who begins to feel a sinister presence in his house was reminiscent of Dracula, and I am not sure if Poe could have d [...]

    Oh, syphilis, what a treasure you are okay, now seriously can you imagine what it must be like for a person to suffer from hallucinations from an unknown cause In the period in which Guy de Maupassant wrote, people were starting to examine the human mind and body in order to interpret how we interact with the world around us and how to explain our existence, purpose through science Before there was a conviction that God or fate gave us our bodies, our state of mind, everything, but now we begin [...]

    The fact that this story of one man s descent into madness was published shortly before the author was institutionalized for insanity, makes me perceive it as Guy de Maupassant s mental illness and descent into madness himself.In the form of diary entries, over the course of 4 or 5 months, we see one man s taking notes of the strange occurrences he feels in his house and around him He s convinced of the existence of some otherworldly creature in his home, and we see how he tries to deal with tha [...]

    Ich bin nicht sicher, ob das hier die richtige Ausgabe ist ich hatte eine Sammlung von 14 Kurzgeschichten Ich war sehr positiv von der Kurzgeschichtensammlung berrascht Die Titelgeschichte hat mich noch nicht umgehauen, aber es gab einige k stliche Geschichten, mal recht traurig, mal unglaublich komisch Hat mich sehr gut unterhalten


    Sebastien

    A lot of these short stories are very psychological in nature and the writing is tip top And any story or novel that involves going crazy, well, that s a big plus to me Too bad Maupassant died so young, uh, from going crazy but at least he wrote about it.

    Wow C tait court Il fallait vraiment juste prendre le temps de le lire.J ai bien aim la fa on dont Maupassant s arrange pour que le lecteur sombre en m me temps que son personnage, le pousse chercher une solution, un moyen de se d barrasser du Horla avec lui et constate avec une trange fascination et une certaine terreur les extr mit s auxquelles le personnage est pr t pour en finir avec le Horla, quitte en finir avec lui m meJe trouve que c est un exercice d criture prodigieux que de conna tre [...]

    Documentation of a slow decline into insanity, or as Rimbaud might term it a derangement of the senses Presented as diary entries which document the troubling presence of the Horla , a coercive and manipulative spirit which haunts the protagonist Reminded me of the Taltos from Anne Rice s witches trilogy There we go, bet you never thought you d see Rice and Rimbaud mentioned in one review, what a pair

    El horla, escrita a manera de un diario, es una clara met fora de la angustia y de la duda de la propia identidad Hemos visto el viento Sin embargo, existe y es capaz de destruir En este relato de sensaciones y realidades contrapuestas, Maupassant nos lleva de paseo a la visi n de la locura, de la incomprensi n y la difusa l nea entre el consciente y el inconsciente, del yo desvanecido y perdido entre el misterio de s mismo.

    This is a collection of two versions of the short story Le Horla and Lettre d un Fou In the first version of Le Horla, a doctor calls his professional friends to his place of work and tells them about his most interesting patient yet He then calls the patient out, and the patient tells his own story of descending into madness, of why he is in a maison de sante The second version of Le Horla is in the form of a journal The patient from the first story becomes the narrator of this version and tell [...]

    The Horla 1887 final version Fantastic piece of Gothic horror I ve read Maupassant before but this is my first time reading this story A series of journal entries as a man tells how he is not feeling well He takes various vacations, feels better but his illness always returns when he gets back home He starts to believe he is going mad as his physical ailments lead to hallucinations and eventually he muses upon whether he is a rational man having hallucinations or simply a madman However, things [...]

    Stumbled across this novella while following a series of Google links Although billed as a horror story it struck me as a description of mental illness The author seems well informed and many observations struck me as prescient of the latest neurological discoveries.Everything that surrounds us, everything that we see without looking at it, everything that we touch without knowing it, everything that we handle without feeling it, everything that we meet without clearly distinguishing it, has a [...]
