The human comedy : selected stories by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

22 editions published between 1965 and 1982 in French and English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We think of Honore Balzac as the author of long and fully upholstered novels, stitched together into the magnificent visionary document called The Human Comedy. Yet along with the full-length fiction within The Human Comedy stand many shorter works, andit's here that we get some of his most daring explorations of crime, sexuality, and artistic creation. As Marcel Proust noted, it is in these tales that we detect, under the surface, the mysterious circulation of blood and desire. All are newly translated by three outstanding translators who restore the freshness of Balzac's vivid and highly colored prose"--

Père Goriot by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

24 editions published between 1966 and 1994 in French and Italian and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il ne s'agit pas exactement d'une biographie puisque, comme le signale M. Cournot, "l'auteur alterne les informations sur les jours de Giono, les descriptions de ses livres, les commentaires". Le critique qualifie l'ensemble "d'inégal", irrité par divers aspects, plutôt secondaires, du livre-somme de P. Citron

Eugénie Grandet by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

23 editions published between 1964 and 1998 in French and held by 124 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 wild ass's skin = (La peau de chagrin) by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

22 editions published between 1971 and 1996 in French and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chez un marchand de curiosités, Raphaël déniche un étrange talisman : une peau de chagrin qui accomplit tous les désirs mais rétrécit un peu plus à chaque souhait, en même temps que diminue le nombre de jours qui restent à vivre à son possesseur. Voulant illustrer l'axiome selon lequel «la vie décroît en raison directe de la puissance des désirs ou de la dissipation des idées», Balzac a écrit avec La Peau de chagrin un roman hanté par le spectre de la dilapidation et de la dislocation : hantise de l'usure du corps et de la dépense sexuelle, hantise de la dispersion de l'intelligence et de l'égarement des esprits, hantise encore de la perte du sens politique et des repères philosophiques
