Encore Maigret! Maigret is a French fictional police detective of the Paris " Brigade Criminelle" created by Georges Simenon. Maigret encounters the dark side of the human psyche and yet he manages to maintain both compassion and a sense of humour, as he explores the complex motives that lie behind every crime. We will read Maigret et le clochard, one of Simenon's popular detective stories. It is an enjoyable read that requires a good knowledge of French. If time permits we will also read two short stories: La Parure by Guy de Maupassant and La Derniere Classe by Alphonse Daudet. Discussions of the stories will be held in French.
