I like (E)

'He' means the author Guy de Maupassant.

Nothing wrong in:
...because he slowly revealed a tragic twist of fate at the end of each piece, demonstrating his famed and masterful use of irony.

GMAT frowns on sentences that use a pronoun to refer to a noun contained in the genitive.

Example:

Lisa's car needs to be serviced because she was involved in a minor accident. :(

Because Lisa was..., her car.... :)

A/C has modifier issues.
B/E has bad use of pronoun ‘he’. It has no referent.

Left with D.
