Another Study of Woman is a narrative hovering between a short story and a novella in terms of length, extracted from Honore de Balzac's multi-volume masterpiece The Human Comedy. At a private dinner party, guests warmed by the flush of fine food and drink begin to banter about the qualities and attributes that characterize the ideal woman. Gradually, the guests begin to reminisce about their own experiences and encounters with perfect and not-so-perfect women. Throughout the entertaining back-and-forth, Balzac presents a number of keen insights about the social mores governing women's behavior in nineteenth-century Europe

Massimilla Doni by Honoré de Balzac( )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 1,837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Massimilla Doni, Balzac tells the story of the conflict between ideal and real love. Emilio Memmi loves the duchesse de Cataneo (Missimilla Doni), who has taken the game of social flirtation farther than she anticipated, making their union impossible since the game now overpowers and obscures her true emotion. At the same time, the famous singer Tinti is appearing at la Fenice, and Emilio becomes captivated by her, and she by him. A long scene at la Fenice puts la Tinti on stage singing in Rossini's opera, Mosè, while Massimilla Doni explains the function of the music and lyrics to a French doctor visiting Venice. Emilio, a witness to the musicological explanation, slowly realizes that his attraction to and pleasure with la Tinti represents only an approximation of his love and admiration for Massimilla. In Emilio's eyes, there is a kind of spar between the blessed love of this white soul and the love of the excitable and hotheaded Sicilian

Louis Lambert by Honoré de Balzac( )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Veering away from his realism and plot based novels comes Louis Lambert. Containing real elements from De Balzac's childhood critics have suggested it should be classed as a fictionalized autobiography. However De Balzac himself proclaimed the plot was merely a platform for the metaphysical and philosophical ideas of the main boy-genius protagonist. The author regularly declared himself to be a genius. Many agree he used Louis Lambert to explore the problems and difficulties that arise within society from the perspective of a genius. Any readers who have become fans of De Balzac and wish to further explore his musings and personal thoughts should definitely read this
