I read this because it's on my 100 Books list, and found myself v.much enjoying it. The style (at least in translation) is both readable and elegant and I found the content pleasantly reminiscent of Zola, in that there is a strong focus on human nature and failings. ( )

> Par araucaria (Babelio) : Pierre et Jean [Guy de Maupassant]
1er jui. 2014 ... Guy de Maupassant est surtout célèbre pour ses nouvelles si bien ciselées, si percutantes. Il n'a écrit que très peu de romans et "Pierre et Jean" est l'un de ceux-ci. L'action comme très souvent se déroule en Normandie. Pierre et Jean ce sont deux frères qui vont être séparés par un terrible secret de famille. La tragédie n'est pas loin... L'histoire est forte. le texte magnifiquement bien rédigé. Et Guy de Maupassant fin psychologue dépeint merveilleusement bien les protagonistes. Un grand livre De Maupassant. Un excellent roman moderne pour l'époque où régnait une bourgeoisie pudibonde.

This story is set in the Normandy coast land and features a look at the family of brothers Pierre and Jean. Pierre is the older brother and is 30 described as dark, doesn't know what he wants and has started one career after another and currently is now a doctor but he has not established a career yet. He is ill tempered but very fond of his mother. He also is fond of knowledge and intelligence. Jean is 25 year old and fair haired and calm. He is a lawyer and has not launched his career either. Mother is Louise and she is married to Gerome Roland and former jeweler who is a sailor wanta be. Roland is impervious to everything and admires nothing more than leisure. In addition, there is the widow Miss Rosemilly, 23 y/o woman who is described as strong and agile with a wealth of her own. She is also described as a hunter and certainly is better at hunting prawns that Jean.

The older brother has always been jealous of his younger brother but this is exasperated when Jean becomes the sole heir to a family friend's estate. This is a story of jealousy and the harm that can come from family secrets and jealousies.

A couple of quotes that I liked;
"I'm taking lessons, learning how a man prepares himself to be a cuckold." and
"How ugly life is! If for once you find a little sweetness in it you are wicked to enjoy it and pay very heavily for it later.

I really enjoyed the descriptions of the Normandy coastline, the homeland of the author ( )

304 books ago, I reviewed Bel Ami, my first Maupassant novel and, coincidentally, the one he wrote just before this one. Thankfully, although it still deals with the worst of our fallen nature, at least you have some sympathy and understanding for the characters involved. With Bel Ami, I just wanted to punch the protagonist in the face.

Pierre and Jean are brothers, young men on their verge of finding their ways in the world. The underlying frictions caused by their very different natures rupture when one of them becomes the sole beneficiary of the heavily-laden will of a fairly obscure old friend.

It’s not just the brothers who have a hard time interpreting this injustice; the event also threatens to destroy the entire family as various skeletons are let loose from their closets to redefine relationships in unexpected ways.

Maupassant can definitely write and he does a very good job in what is a very short novel of constructing the characters with enough substance that the realism comes across quite forcefully. You find yourself siding with pretty much everyone except the father and that’s only because he seems too reflective to grasp what’s really happening.

In writing this way, Maupassant cleverly engages your sympathies and challenges you to evaluate your response to the moral dilemma which subsequently confronts you when the truth is revealed. That’s clever and, at the time it was written, would have created far more impact than in our much more liberal days. It’s a great example of what the novel is for: a portal to see our very own selves. ( )

Pierre and Jean are brothers who have just finished their degrees in medicine and law when they receive the news that a family friend has died and made Jean the sole heir of a decent sum of money. Pierre contains his jealously relatively successfully, but he is not able to contain his feelings when others suggest that there must have been a reason one brother was favored over the other. Pierre notices that there is a strong physical resemblance between Jean and his benefactor while the brothers look nothing alike. Pierre’s suspicions of his mother’s infidelity weigh so heavily on his mind that he is unable to think of anything else until he confronts her and Jean.

I really liked this novel. The pace moved nicely, and the story was compelling. I hadn’t read Maupassant before, and now I’m looking forward to reading more of his work. ( )
