Pierre u Jean / Pierre et Jean by Guy de Maupassant and translated into Maltese by Joe Pulè is the twenty fifth book in the Faraxa Translation Series.
Pierre u Jean is a naturalist and psychological novel about an intimate circle consisting of a family of four and two great friends. It is a study on jealousy, suspicions and love within this family, and Maupassant portrays the great passions that erupt with utmost delicacy and with the highest narrative skill. The novel is a brilliant example of his artistry as a narrator, with his vigorous and picturesque style, at the same time deliberate and nuanced, which makes him one of the greatest French novelists of the nineteenth century. This is a novel which can and should be read multiple times so that all its implications and nuances can be truly appreciated, within the context of the epoch in which it was written.
Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was born near Dieppe in Normandy, and throughout his whole life he had a very profound tie to the province in which he was born. Pierre u Jean (1888), which is generally considered his greatest work, is set in Le Havre, and whilst reading it, one constantly feels surrounded by the sounds, scenes and scents of a port which is full of life.
