Carmen and Other Stories
Prosper Merimee  •  Nicholas Jotcham (Translator)
LITERATURE •  1999 •  PAPER  • 361 PAGES

A sophisticated Parisian, Merimee preferred tales of high drama, banditry, outlaws and outcasts set in exotic locales, preferably in the past. This collection of nine stories includes: Carmen, the source for the opera; Columba, set in Corsica; the Etruscan Vase, one of his Parisian tales; The Storming of the Redoubt, involving Napoleon's 1812 Russian campaign; and Lokis, set in the forests of Medieval Lithuania.  (FRN201, $13.95)
