Summary/Abstract: In June 2013, Babeş-Bolyai University from Cluj-Napoca, Romania, organized the international colloquium Maupassant 2013, meant to celebrate the 120 years passed since Maupassant’s death, within an essay to have a whole Romanian Year dedicated to him; lack of funds reduced it to some parts of the country, especially Transylvania. This article presents what was done in this respect, the most important result being a collection of varied essays belonging to different authors – the great majority working in important European universities – who wrote them on the basis of the topics suggested in the call for papers: the biography, between truth and legend; the short stories, between humour and fantastic; the creator of images: illustrations and movie adaptations; the translation of the work. Such a diversity of topics allowed a wide range of approaches which resulted in extremely interesting contributions, demonstrating Maupassant’s actuality even in the second decade of the 21st century.
