“An Adventure in Paris” by Guy De Maupassant is a short story that follows a woman who seeks a change in her life. While reading, we get to follow a married woman who is chasing lust, adventure and exhilaration which is a big change from her usual routine. “and she pictured to herself their life of continual excitement, of constant debauches, of orgies such as they indulged in in ancient Rome…” She believes that she can fulfil these desires by traveling to Paris and gain access to the lifestyle she has seen in the magazines. While on the trip, she gets her chance when she runs into Jean Varin, a successful author. She ends up sleeping with Varin, but it was not as she imagined. This is shown when Varin asks why she did it all and she responds with “I wanted to know . . . what . . . what vice . . . really was, . . . and . . . well . . . well, it is not at all funny.” Even though she was pretty successful in achieving her desires, she ends with not feeling satisfied or contempt with the outcome of her choices.

2nd response:

After exploring all of the stories posted in week 1, I was interested by the piece “Letter to a Young Lady in Paris”, by Julio Cortazar. After reading this selection a multitude of times I was able to grasp the idea that the narrator who was not named in the letter seemed to be writing a suicidal note to his girlfriend. The author created a piece that under all the symbolism can be very relatable to others. The narrator seemed to be overthinking the idea of moving in with his girlfriend while he was visiting Paris.  We can see that he is uncomfortable and worried about intruding on her personal space. He opens up by saying to his girlfriend, “I’ve closed so many suitcases in my life, I’ve passed so many hours preparing luggage that never manages to get moved anyplace” (Cortazar). This shows that he struggles with change and is unable to deal with his problems in a normal matter around his partner.

respond by answering the following questions (2 or more)

.  Why is he writing this letter to his girlfriend?

2.  What is it that worries this writer?  

3.  Is it the woman’s ‘organized life’ – her books, music, furniture, all in such patterns that are off-putting?

4.  What do the rabbits symbolize?  Are there actually rabbits?  If so, why so many?  If not, what is it then instead of rabbits?

5.  The writer of the letter tells her ” I moved last Thursday in a haze overlaid by weariness, at five in the afternoon. I’ve closed so many suitcases in my life, I’ve passed so many hours preparing luggage that never manages to get moved anyplace, that Thursday was a day full of shadows and straps, because when I look at valise straps it’s as though I were seeing shadows, as though they were parts of a whip that flogs me in some indirect way, very subtly and horribly.
