Père Goriot by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

Rastignac est un jeune provincial qui cherche à s'insérer dans la société parisienne. Il lui manque les manières et l'argent. Pour parvenir, il côtoie les femmes du monde, mais reste attaché à son voisin de la pension Vauquer, le père Goriot, vieillard malheureux abandonné de ses filles. Vautrin, forçat évadé, Marsay, politicien ambitieux, et Rubempré, écrivain talentueux, sont animés du même désir de pouvoir. Ils apprennent, chacun à leur manière, les complicités et les alliances indispensables dans une société gouvernée par les intérêts. Seules figures du désintéressement : le père Goriot, vaincu par son amour paternel, et Mme de Beauséant, abandonnée du Tout-Paris. La passion bout dans cette maison comme dans une cocotte-minute, les pages se tournent toutes seules; c'est que chaque palier de la pension Vauquer est devenu un étage de ce que Balzac vient de concevoir: La Comédie humaine

12 editions published in 1990 in French and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugénie Grandet by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

21 editions published between 1964 and 1998 in French and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depicting the fatal clash between material desires and the liberating power of human passions, Honore de Balzac's Eugenie Grandet is translated with an introduction by M.A. Crawford in Penguin Classics. In a gloomy house in provincial Saumur, the miser Grandet lives with his wife and daughter, Eugenie, whose lives are stifled and overshadowed by his obsession with gold. Guarding his piles of glittering treasures and his only child equally closely, he will let no one near them. But when the arrival of her handsome cousin, Charles, awakens Eugenie's own desires, her passion brings her into a violent collision with her father that results in tragedy for all. Eugenie Grandet is one of the earliest and finest works in Balzac's Comedie humaine cycle, which portrays a society consumed by the struggle to amass wealth and achieve power. Here Grandet embodies both the passionate pursuit of money, and the human cost of avarice. M. A. Crawford's lucid translation is accompanied by an introduction discussing the irony and psychological insight of Balzac's characterization, the role of fate in the novel, its setting and historical background. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)

The first new English translation for more than 35 years of Balzac's extraordinary The Wild Ass's Skin, it is also the first edition in English to include Balzac's original Preface of 1831. This novel has been freshly translated by Helen Constantine, who captures Balzac's stylistic energy and exuberance. Patrick Coleman's wide-ranging introduction considers the multiple perspectives of the novel, its conceptualization of historical change, and its satirical commentary on contemporary society. His extensive notes clarify Balzac's many allusions to the culture and society of his time. The book also includes an up-to-date bibliography and helpful map of Paris in 1830
