Les Contes cruels regroupent vingt-huit récits brefs rédigés par Villiers de L'Isle-Adam (1838-1889) entre 1867 et 1883 – date de la publication du recueil chez Calmann-Lévy – et pour la plupart déjà parus en revues. Il s'agit probablement, avec L'Ève future (1884), du livre le plus connu d'un auteur considéré par plusieurs de ses contemporains, et non des moindres (Verlaine, Mallarmé, Maeterlinck, Bloy...), comme un véritable génie, mais dont la légende de dandy excentrique et d'écrivain maudit a fini par occulter en partie l'œuvre considérable.

De brefs récits qui se lisent avec sérieux et poussent à la réflexion... Une écriture poétique, et des histoires qui sont le sombre reflet de la vie de leur auteur, "les éclairs d'espoir d'un désespéré". ( )

This collection of 27 stories is the only edition available in English. Villiers was much admired by contemporaries such as Yeats and Verlaine. Some of these tales are exotic and mythical while others convey a picture of glittering Paris life. The text and introduction of this edition were previously published in the Oxford Library of French Classics.
