Item description for Bola de sebo y otros Relatos (Biblioteca Juvenil) (Spanish Edition) by Guy de Maupassant...
Una prostituta despreciada reparte su comida con los burgueses que la acompaan asqueados en un viaje. Tambien da a aquellos conciliadores burgueses una clase de patriotismo, cuando un oficial invasor detiene el coche y demanda los favores de la prostituta como condicion para permitirles continuar el viaje. Viendo que sus vidas dependen de Bola de Sebo, los burgueses recurren a todo tipo de halagos. La prostituta finalmente se entrega al enemigo y este permite que el carruaje siga su marcha. Como si nada hubiera sucedido, las seoras y seores burgueses recobran sus posturas distantes y llenan de reproches a la mujer vulgar y ""pecadora"". Renacido el desprecio, la pobre muchacha no tiene otro consuelo que sus propias lagrimas. / A prostitute scorned shared her food with the bourgeoisie that accompany her in a trip, disgusted. She also gives those bourgeois conciliators a class of patriotism, when an enemy officer stopped the car and demands the favors of the prostitute as a condition to enable them to continue the journey. Seeing that their lives depend on Bola de Sebo, the bourgeoisie resorted to all sorts of flatteries.

More About Guy de Maupassant
Guy de Maupassant (1850-93) was a literary disciple of Flaubert and one of the group of young Naturalistic writers that formed around Zola. Maupassant's contribution to the Naturalists collaborative collection of tales, Les Soirees de Medan, was 'Boule de suif', which remains one of the most well-known of the hundreds of stories he wrote over the course of his life and on which his literary reputation now rests. He also wrote six novels, including Bel-Ami (1885) and Pierre et Jean (1888). Sian Miles was born in Wales and educated there and in France where she lived for many years. She now teaches at Warwick University and is the author of an anthology of the writings of Simone Weil, and translations of George Sand's Marianne, Violet Trefusis's Echo, and has collaborated on Paul Valery's Cahiers/Notebooks.
