This essay discusses Maupassant’s Writing Boule de suif (Swell of Tallow). Boule de suif, Published for the first time in the Evenings of Médan in 1880, “Swell of Tallow”, the first news of Maupassant, obtained an immediate success.

Boule de suif, Published for the first time in the Evenings of Médan in 1880, “Swell of Tallow”, the first news of Maupassant, obtained an immediate success. This success, which persists forever, almost certainly due to the literary richness of work and the art with which Maupassant knew to write.

Maupassant, in his news, and particularly at the end of this one, succeeds in a rather amazing way translating the psychology of his characters. We can very easily view an opposition between Tallow Boule and the other travelers on the one hand, then one second opposition, month apparent that one, between Cornudet and the “decent people”.

Long description of the emotions of Tallow Ball, of its sorrows, distress the reader by his precision, which perfectly portrays cruelty which emerges some: “and its fury falling sudden like a too tended cord which breaks, it felt lends to cry. And soon two large tears being sledded from the eyes traveling slowly on its cheeks. Others followed them faster, running as the drops of water that filter of a rock. It remained right, the fixed glance, and the rigid and pale face, hoping that it would not be seen.” The first comparison translates the severe aspect of the antagonism of Tallow Ball, which appears all of a sudden in the form of tears. Description of “large tears” which “rolled” on its cheeks and of these others, more fast, which ran “as the water drops which filter of a rock”, translate its pain also more precisely, that it in vain tries to hide.
