Im adjust von fünfundzwanzig Jahren erlebte man de Maupassant die ersten Anzeichen einer ererbten syphilitischen Erkrankung. Das Entsetzen vor dem unausweichlichen Ende sollte ihn nie mehr verlassen; es stiftete ihn nicht nur zu einem vermeintlich tollkühnen Lebenswandel an, sondern es bildete auch den Fundus, aus dem er den Stoff für einige seiner beeindruckendsten Erzählungen bezog. Der vorliegende Band enthält neben Kabinettstücken des Wahnsinns aus Maupassants Feder die deutsche Erstveröffentlichung seiner frühen Burleske «Dr. Gloss und die Seelenwanderung», in der das Schreckliche noch humoristisch gemildert erscheint und dennoch seinen schwarzen Schatten bereits spürbar entfaltet. Eine echte Entdeckung!
