Suppose you were given a passage in French that you had not seen before, written either by Flaubert or Maupassant. Suppose that nothing about the subject matter or vocabulary gives a hint as to its author. Is there a way to tell who wrote it, purely from the style or literary method? I think some people refer to this as the author's "craft."

I have struggled through Madame Bovary several times, also Trois contes; and through Boule de suif and Un lâche. But my French is not strong enough to differentiate between the authors' styles.
