Biografía del Autor
<p>Henri Ren&eacute; Albert Guy de Maupassant was a 19th century French author, remembered as a master of the short story form, and as a representative of the Naturalist school, who depicted human lives and destinies and social forces in disillusioned and often pessimistic terms. Maupassant was a prot&eacute;g&eacute; of Gustave Flaubert and his stories are characterized by economy of style and efficient, effortless outcomes. Many are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s, describing the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught up in events beyond their control, are permanently changed by their experiences. He wrote some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse.<br>Pierre Lou&yuml;s was a French poet and writer, most renowned for lesbian and classical themes in some of his writings. He is known as a writer who sought to \"express pagan sensuality with stylistic perfection\". He was made first a Chevalier and then an Officer of the L&eacute;gion d&amp;apos;honneur for his contributions to French literature.<br>Pierre Jules Th&eacute;ophile Gautier was a French poet, dramatist, novelist, journalist, and art and literary critic. While an ardent defender of Romanticism, Gautier&amp;apos;s work is difficult to classify and remains a point of reference for many subsequent literary traditions such as Parnassianism, Symbolism, Decadence and Modernism.<br>Honor&eacute; de Balzac was a French novelist and playwright. The novel sequence La Com&eacute;die humaine, which presents a panorama of post-Napoleonic French life, is generally viewed as his magnum opus. Owing to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature. He is renowned for his multi-faceted characters; even his lesser characters are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human. Inanimate objects are imbued with character as well; the city of Paris, a backdrop for much of his writing, takes on many human qualities. Balzac suffered from health problems throughout his life, possibly due to his intense writing schedule. His relationship with his family was often strained by financial and personal drama, and he lost more than one friend over critical reviews. In 1850, Balzac married Ewelina Ha&Aring;&#132;ska, a Polish aristocrat and his longtime love; he died in Paris five months later.<br>&Eacute;mile Zola was born April 2, 1840 in Paris, France. In 1865 he published his controversial first novel, La Confession de Claude . In the following years he continued his journalism career in while publishing two novels. In 1868, he decided to write a large-scale series of novels, Les Rougon-Macquart. As the founder of the naturalist movement, Zola also published several treatises to explain his theories on art. He died on September 28, 1902.</p>
