    About "Honoré de Balzac"

      • Honoré de Balzac

        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. Publicado em 1837 faz parte da série "As Rivalidades", sendo considerada uma espécie de continuação de "A Solteirona". Houve troca dos nomes a fim de se preservar a identidade dos personagens (brincadeirinha do autor) mas fica óbvio se tratara das mesmas pessoas. Aqui a rivalidade continua e Du Croisier (antes Du Bousquier) ainda quer se vingar dos nobres e aristocratas, dessa vez seu alvo é a família D'Esgrignon. O marquês D'Esgrignon já idoso casou-se com uma jovem que lhe deixou um f [...]


    2. Le Cabinet des Antiques d��signe le milieu de cette vieille noblesse de province, ruin��e par la R��volution et oubli��e par les Bourbons restaur��s. Le marquis d'Esgrignon, sa soeur et ses amis incarnent ce groupe social. H��las ! le fils du marquis, parti pour Paris, y m��ne joyeuse vie, s'y ruine, commet un faux, risque le bagne. Le Cabinet des Antiques forme une suite de la Vieille Fille m��me si certains noms ont ��t�� modifi��s. Balzac excelle [...]


    3. The second book in The Jealousies of a Country Town is set in Alencon after The Old Maid which should be read first. While it does stand on its own, a history of some of the characters is presented in The Old Maid. Victurnien d'Esgrignon is an only son. His mother died in childbirth and he was raised, and much spoiled, by his father and aunt. This aunt, Armande, turned down several marriage proposals to devote herself to raising her nephew. One of her suitors became quite bitter and wanted to av [...]


    4. SPOILER ALERT: this isn’t a review, it’s a summary so that I can keep track of the plots and characters in La Comedie Humaine.Charles Marie Victor Ange Carol, a.k.a. Marquis d'Esgrignon. is an aristocrat of the old school, a gentleman whose family suffered under the Terror but who never compromised his views and remained loyal to the estate for which he felt responsible. He had to go into hiding for a while, however, but during this period Mlle. Armande d'Esgrignon, his half-sister was able [...]



    5. Je me suis parfois perdue dans les personnages (qui sont les juges, sous-juge, juge substitut, président, etc.) et les faits reprochés (c'était aussi mon problème quant aux questions d'argent dans Eugénie Grandet), et ma méconnaissance des détails historiques et politiques de cette période m'a aussi nui, je crois. À certains endroits il y avait tellement de notes pour expliquer qui est untel que j'ai préféré abandonner et me contenter de l'histoire. Bref, plusieurs choses m'ont frust [...]


    6. A pleasant surprise. Most of Balzac's best work has been re-translated recently by Penguin, Oxford, or other publishers; but for this gem, you have to go back to the 1890s and early 1900s when Ellen Marriage and Katharine Prescott Wormeley were the only games in town. This short novel is one of the set of two known as JEALOUSIES OF A COUNTRY TOWN (the other member of which is AN OLD MAID, also worth reading) tells of the youthful indiscretions of a scion of a provincial noble family and how his [...]


    7. Tal vez, una de las mejores narraciones de las luchas entre la nobleza y la burguesía, así como su eventual fusión.
