“Le Horla” is an 1887 famous short horror story written by French writer Guy de Maupassant
in the first person in the form of a diary. The narrator, a solitary bourgeois man, reported his
troubled thoughts and feelings of anguish. All around him, he senses the presence without
form and consistency of a being that he calls the “Horla”. A strange invisible creature, a
threatening presence that he has come to make him his slave. He feels so prisoner, lost and
possessed to the point that he is ready to kill either the Horla, or himself.
