By Guy de Maupassant

Cette édition enrichie comporte des cartes de l'Afrique du Nord avec renvois vers le texte.

Edition enrichie de Marie-Claire Bancquart comportant un appareil critique (préface, notes, chronologie et bibliographie).

1881 : Maupassant découvre l'Algérie en revolt ; il y retourne, ainsi qu'en Tunisie, en 1888. Il voyage également en Italie, en Sicile, en Bretagne. Les articles qu'il donne aux journaux – et reprend pour certains en recueils – nous permettent de suivre le parcours d'un écrivain qui fut journaliste durant toute sa vie littéraire.

Des paysages nouveaux, aux couleurs crues ; des hommes aux habitudes différentes des nôtres : Maupassant ne pouvait qu'être captivé par ces révélations. Ses positions politiques, son obsession pour le soleil, son goût des autres font l'intérêt de ces récits, qui ont le expertise et l. a. strength des contes. Parfois l'auteur s'inspire des courses, s'ennuie, rêve... Mais le vrai est aussi beau que l'imaginaire.

Ces textes témoignent de l'originalité des impressions de Maupassant et d'une sensibilité naissante qui éclatera dans ses romans et ses nouvelles.

Sample text

Aware that the prerogatives of public authority create unique opportunities for individuals to pursue their advantages at the expense of others, Cuoco is sympathetic to what xxxii Editors’ Introduction Pagano tried to do but thinks that he did not dig deep enough about human motivation, institutional arrangements, and the practice of selfrule. Again, the problem is modelling Neapolitan institutions on those that do not quite fit local conditions. Cuoco elaborates these points and defends his position through close criticism of Francesco Mario Pagano’s proposals for a Neapolitan constitution, very much influenced by successive French republican models (Battaglini 1994; see also Pagden 1994; Pagano’s constitutional project in Venturi 1962; and symposium on Pagano in Pensiero Politico 1995).

6 Francesco Mario Pagano (1748–1799) was a jurist and author of the constitutional design that prompted Cuoco to write his letters to Vincenzio Russo, presented as fragments in appendix I, Fragments; Domenico Cirillo (1739–1799) was a scientist; Gian Francesco Conforti (1743–1799), before becoming interior minister of the republic, had been a widely respected theologian and literary figure who served the Bourbon government in various capacities. See Galasso (1984). 7 The general term lazzaroni referred loosely to a group of people in Naples that included labourers, peddlers, beggars, and con men, many without permanent residences who were living on the streets and were unemployed.

Whether Cuoco has faithfully interpreted Pagano is a contentious issue for some (see Ferrone 2012: 153–75). Giole Solari, a distinguished thinker in his own right and a sympathetic student of Pagano’s thought, noted earlier that Cuoco was “the most authoritative and fairest of his critics” (Solari [1934] 1963: 289). Certainly, the Fragments remain indispensable for a balanced interpretation of Cuoco’s political theory and institutional analysis. A central theme is the need to adapt constitutions to the manners and customs of a people.
