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 los angeles strength des contes. Parfois l'auteur s'inspire des publications, 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.
