Nearly all of Guy de Maupassant's short stories are set in rural Normandy, on the northeastern coast of France. The village of Goderville, Maitre Hauchecorne's home in "A Piece of String," is an actual place, located in Upper Normandy, between La Havre and Rouen, and not far from the River Seine. It is an ancient village, established in the 9th century. (The population in 2006 was about 2,800). The town market is located in the main square, and there is a tavern, Jourdain's, and a mayor's office. The story itself is set in the 1880s.
