Le Rosier de Madame Husson by Guy de Maupassant
By Guy de Maupassant
Les choses ne sont pas ce qu'elles semblent. Un rosier peut en cacher un autre. l. a. première qualité de ce livre est de mystifier le lecteur : il y a du piquant dans le titre, mais il ne vient pas de l'arbuste qu'on croit. Dans cette savoureuse histoire de chasteté récompensée, le rosier est un garçon et los angeles fleur est d'oranger... Mieux que d'autres livres de Maupassant, ce recueil de contes se gausse ainsi de toutes les tentatives faites pour sauvegarder les apparences de los angeles vertu.
