  1. Honor de Balzac was a nineteenth century French novelist and playwright His magnum opus was a sequence of almost 100 novels and plays collectively entitled La Com die humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the fall of Napol on Bonaparte in 1815.Due to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature He is renowned for his multi faceted characters even his lesser characters are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human Inanimate objects are imbued with character as well the city of Paris, a backdrop for much of his writing, takes on many human qualities His writing influenced many famous authors, including the novelists Marcel Proust, mile Zola, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, Henry James and Jack Kerouac, as well as important philosophers such as Friedrich Engels Many of Balzac s works have been made into films, and they continue to inspire other writers.An enthusiastic reader and independent thinker as a child, Balzac had trouble adapting himself to the teaching style of his grammar school His willful nature caused trouble throughout his life, and frustrated his ambitions to succeed in the world of business When he finished school, Balzac was apprenticed as a legal clerk, but he turned his back on law after wearying of its inhumanity and banal routine Before and during his career as a writer, he attempted to be a publisher, printer, businessman, critic, and politician He failed in all of these efforts La Com die Humaine reflects his real life difficulties, and includes scenes from his own experience.Balzac suffered from health problems throughout his life, possibly due to his intense writing schedule His relationship with his family was often strained by financial and personal drama, and he lost than one friend over critical reviews In 1850, he married Ewelina Ha ska, his longtime paramour he died five months later.

  1. 2015 Reading Challenge ORIGINALY WRITTEN IN ANOTHER LANGUAGEThe descriptions are so long, chapter long, as usual But if you are patient enough to read that, I m sure you will enjoy the book Too bad that I like dialogues a lot than descriptions, so I did not like this book as much as I first thought I would when I picked it up.

  2. This is one of the three novelettes that are grouped together as The History of the Thirteen, along with Ferragus Chief of the Companions of Duty and The Girl with the Golden Eyes The whole notion is that there is a secret society of wealthy gentlemen in Paris called The Thirteen which has powers approaching the supernatural.In this book, Antoinette, the Duchesse de Langeais trifles with the feelings of General Armande de Montriveau, who is a member of the Thirteen On the advice of one of his fe [...]

  3. The reason I got married was to effectively release myself from the pains and vicissitudes of a life led looking for love, so as to be able to concentrate my energies on reading, thus I am not all that interested in books about the pains and vicissitudes of lives led looking for love.

  4. Existe uma raz o do porqu Simone de Beauvoir escolheu Stendhal e n o Balzac para fazer suas elucubra es a respeito de como um bom autor descreve suas personagens femininas, Balzac t o famoso por suas mulheres comete pecado atr s de pecado ao descrev las de maneira uniforme sem explorar a subjetividade como se ser mulher consistisse de um amalgama social e n o apenas um constructo Resumindo, ele escreve bem pra caralho e aquela descri o do Fairbourg Saint German uma obra prima parte, mas n o ente [...]

This is Part 2 of the Ferragus trilogy about The Thirteen which showcases the power and reach of the Devorants, a secret society of companions who look out for each other s interets without morals or scruples I read the translation by by Ellen Marriage This is not a review, it s a summary so that I can keep track of these stories from Scenes of Parisian Life, in La Comedie Humaine SO BEWARE IT S ALL SPOILERSThis story takes place on an island in the Mediterranean after the French had taken Cadiz [...]

  12. One of the most beautiful passages I ve ever read was the scene when Sister Ther se knows Montriveau is outside the convent and she speaks to him through the music she plays on the organ.Balzac is known for beautifully conveying the full range of human sentiment and complexity in his characters He is also known for digressing from the storytelling to devote several pages to his detailed, didactic explanation on the current state of affairs, and so would be interesting to students of history as w [...]

  13. Neste romance, Balzac escreveu um primeiro cap tulo fenomenal E um ep logo formid vel uma narrativa da qual o cinema se apropriou com maestria O primeiro cap tulo conta uma situa o dram tica que, misteriosa, demanda do escritor uma explica o retrospectiva O problema que a retrospectiva ma ante Balzac, como sempre, faz um panorama social curiosamente, n o t o inspirado como em outras obras , depois foca em alguns personagens, destrincha os, para depois se confundir com eles, e se esconde, como dr [...]

  14. Hmm, it is difficult to unambiguously difine my attitude towards this novella On the one hand, the plot is quite outdated and the feminist in me is outraged the book ends in a phrase smth like Only the last love of a woman can satisfy the first love of a man and the whole plot deals with the fact that a woman DARED not to give herself immediately to the man who decided that he loved her.But if one looks beyond the romantic and quite a bit sexist plot of the novella, one would find that the book [...]

  16. The second of Balzac s trilogy The Thirteen I liked this one a bit better than Ferragus, which was the first in the trilogy, and I m enjoying Balzac quite a bit His descriptions of Paris, the people and the culture are never boring, and he sets the scene beautifully He is, however, a man of his time, and so his depictions of women in particular are a bit jarring, even for someone who s read a lot of classic literature and who should be used to it But the plot moves you along, as well as the nuan [...]

  17. This short novel is partly a strong indictment of the arrogant, self indulgent class of nobles that regained ascendancy after 1815 Bourbon Restoration, but mainly Balzac tells us the story of the obsessive infatuation of a former Napoleonic military officer for a young married noblewoman Despite the emphasis on presenting the contemporary restrictions on expressing one s true love interest, Balzac also makes us consider whether personal character traits are just as or even important to succeed [...]

  19. I read this because Marguerite Yourceneau wrote about how remarkable it is in Memoirs of Hadrian I agree, and it s an intoxicating read like drinking absinthe all day Could I read mu way through all of Balzac before dying Perhaps I ve read some already.I ve gathered my thoughts in a blog, which again gives away the plot I ve also collected some great quotes richardswsmith.wordpress

  20. A novella, usually bundled up with other tales by Balzac of the Thirteen I bought this whilst I was in Langeais even though the town never actually features in the book Flirting and love between the Duchesse de Langeais and General Armande de Montriveau Lots of long speeches and descriptive text, but builds up a fantastic sense of French high society of the time through this Note to self must read Balzac.

  21. it s a great book with beautiful passages in which the sound of the piano is like a sad music for the heart I loved the fact that many passages are extraordinarily well written, I love Balzac s good writing However, even if I loved the beggining of this book, I hated the ending Too much pain, to much cruelty in the end.

  22. If you only read one book by Balzac, make it this one If you don t plan on reading any books by Balzac, read it anyway And try not to weep.

  23. Terrible et violent amour Une tr s belle histoire D sormais, Balzac devient un des mes auteurs pr f r s de la litt rature fran aise du XIXe si cle.
