Cousin Bette by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

77 editions published between 1905 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lorsque, en 1846, Balzac publie La Cousine Bette, le roman doit constituer avec Le Cousin Pons le diptyque des Parents pauvres, l'un et l'autre accablés d'injures. Mais à la différence de Pons, qui sera le vieux musicien plein de coeur, dès l'origine La Cousine Bette devait voir la vieille fille disgraciée se venger de ses douleurs, ce qu'elle fera jusqu'à la ruine des siens.Le premier projet s'est cependant élargi. Non seulement parce que les amours du baron Hulot vieillissant font de La Cousine Bette un roman érotique, et la dénonciation des affairistes dans le Paris de la monarchie de Juillet un roman de l'argent, mais parce que Balzac, renouvelant ses habitudes narratives pour mieux rivaliser avec les feuilletonistes, écrit là un livre d'action - un livre sombre, aussi, et qui n'écarte ni les ressorts ni les rebondissements du roman noir

"Dr. Benassis is a compassionate and conscientious physician who ministers to the psychological and spiritual as well as physical needs of the villagers among whom he has chosen to practice medicine. He has been instrumental in transforming the once-impoverished community into a progressive and healthy town, and he is now also its elected mayor. To Genestas, a soldier at a nearby military garrison, Dr. Benassis relates stories of the transformation he has wrought and eventually imparts the secrets of his buried past. Genestas asks the doctor to care for his sickly 16-year-old adopted son. Later, in gratitude for his son’s recovery, Genestas swears that he will settle in the village and carry on the doctor’s good and noble work."--Encyclopedia Britannica

Eugénie Grandet by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

45 editions published between 1929 and 1963 in 3 languages and held by 362 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)
