Carmen and Other Stories
Prosper Merimee, Nicholas Jotcham
Carmen, Merimee’s classic tale of passion and power, provided the inspiration for one of the world’s most enduringly popular operas, and numerous films. Like Carmen, the other stories in this book, including Mateo Falcone, The Etruscan Vase, and The Venus of Ille, explore the clash of primitive and civilized values. This is the only selection of Merimee’s short stories available
