Maupassant had contracted syphilis in his 20s and the disease later caused increasing mental disorder. By , his mind was deteriorating rapidly. Maupassat saw his own ghost, shot at an imaginary enemy, and believed that a saline fermentation has taken place in his brain. Also his sight had troubled him at intervals, he suffered from severe headaches and used narcotics. In 'Who Knows? Maupassant's horror fiction consists of some 39 stories, only a tenth of his total. The nightmarish stories have much in common with Edgar Allan Poe 's supernatural visions. Recurring themes are madness and cruelty.
Maupassant describes two caretakers, living in the French Alps in a remote inn, which is surrounded by snow six months and unreachable. When the older caretaker goes missing, the younger in his loneliness loses his reason. Despite it is chained up, it escapes and strangles its owner. On January 2, in , Maupassant tried to commit suicide by cutting his throat but was saved by his servant. He was driven in a straitjacket to the celebrated private asylum of Dr. Esprit Blanche at Passy, in Paris, where he died next year.

I must be free, entirely unfettered, in all my actions — my coming and my going; I can tolerate neither control, jealousy, nor criticism as to my conduct. I pledge my word, however, never to compromise the name of the man I marry, nor to render him ridiculous in the eyes of the world. But that man must promise to look upon meas an equal, an ally, and not as an inferior, or as an obedient, submissive wife. My ideas, I know, are not like those of other people, but I shall never change them.

Henderson, Mme. Novelists should thank Flaubert the way poets thank spring; it all begins again with him. There really is a time before Flaubert and a time after him. Flaubert decisively established what most readers and writers think of as modern realist narration, and his influence is almost too familiar to be visible.
We hardly remark of good prose that it favors the telling and brilliant detail; that it privileges a high degree of visual noticing; that it maintains an unsentimental composure and knows how to withdraw, like a good valet, from superfluous commentary; that it judges good and bad neutrally; that it seeks out the truth, even at the cost of repelling us; and that the author's fingerprints on all this are paradoxically, traceable but not visible.
You can find some of this in Defoe or Austen or Balzac , but not all of it until Flaubert.
As a writer, other than a pure stylist, Flaubert was nearly equal parts romantic and realist. The exactitude with which he adapts his expressions to his purpose can be seen in all parts of his work, especially in the portraits he draws of the figures in his principal romances. The degree to which Flaubert's fame has extended since his death presents an interesting chapter of literary history in itself.
Flaubert's lean and precise writing style has had a large influence on 20th-century writers such as Franz Kafka and J. As Vladimir Nabokov discussed in his famous lecture series: . The greatest literary influence upon Kafka was Flaubert's.
Gustave Flaubert - Wikipedia
Flaubert who loathed pretty-pretty prose would have applauded Kafka's attitude towards his tool. Kafka liked to draw his terms from the language of law and science, giving them a kind of ironic precision, with no intrusion of the author's private sentiments; this was exactly Flaubert's method through which he achieved a singular poetic effect. The legacy of his work habits can best be described, therefore, as paving the way towards a slower and more introspective manner of writing.
The publication of Madame Bovary in was followed by more scandal than admiration; it was not understood at first that this novel was the beginning of something new: the scrupulously truthful portraiture of life. Gradually, this aspect of his genius was accepted, and it began to crowd out all others. At the time of his death, he was widely regarded as the most influential French Realist. Even after the decline of the Realist school, Flaubert did not lose prestige in the literary community; he continues to appeal to other writers because of his deep commitment to aesthetic principles, his devotion to style, and his indefatigable pursuit of the perfect expression.
