    About "Honoré de Balzac"

    1. 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. 2015 Reading Challenge: ORIGINALY WRITTEN IN ANOTHER LANGUAGEThe descriptions are so long, chapter-long, as usual. But if you are patient enough to read that, I'm sure you will enjoy the book. Too bad that I like dialogues a lot more than descriptions, so I did not like this book as much as I first thought I would when I picked it up.


    2. This is one of the three novelettes that are grouped together as The History of the Thirteen, along with Ferragus: Chief of the Companions of Duty and The Girl with the Golden Eyes. The whole notion is that there is a secret society of wealthy gentlemen in Paris called The Thirteen which has powers approaching the supernatural.In this book, Antoinette, the Duchesse de Langeais trifles with the feelings of General Armande de Montriveau, who is a member of the Thirteen. On the advice of one of his [...]


    3. The reason I got married was to effectively release myself from the pains and vicissitudes of a life led looking for love, so as to be able to concentrate my energies on reading, thus I am not all that interested in books about the pains and vicissitudes of lives led looking for love.


    4. Existe uma razão do porquê Simone de Beauvoir escolheu Stendhal e não Balzac para fazer suas elucubrações a respeito de como um bom autor descreve suas personagens femininas, Balzac tão famoso por suas mulheres comete pecado atrás de pecado ao descrevê-las de maneira uniforme sem explorar a subjetividade – como se ser mulher consistisse de um amalgama social e não apenas um constructo. Resumindo, ele escreve bem pra caralho e aquela descrição do Fairbourg Saint German é uma obra pr [...]


    5. This is Part 2 of the Ferragus trilogy about 'The Thirteen' which showcases the power and reach of the Devorants, a secret society of companions who look out for each other's interets without morals or scruples. I read the translation by by Ellen Marriage. This is not a review, it's a summary so that I can keep track of these stories from Scenes of Parisian Life, in La Comedie Humaine. SO BEWARE: IT'S ALL SPOILERSThis story takes place on an island in the Mediterranean after the French had taken [...]


    6. Publicado em 1834, o livro faz parte da série "História dos Treze", contida em Estudos de Costumes - Cenas da Vida Parisiense.Dividido em 4 capítulos, inicia-se a história com a descrição de um convento situado na costa espanhola onde uma mulher se retirou da vida parisiense e é procurada loucamente por um homem. A partir daí conheceremos os fatos que os levaram a isso.Os personagens são a sedutora duquesa de Langeais que resolve brincar com o coração do sr. Montriveau, general de cor [...]


    7. "İnsanlar kendilerinden üstün olmamıza izin verirler ama kendileri kadar alçalmamızı asla bağışlamazlar. Bu yüzden büyük karakterlere karşı besledikleri his azıcık nefret ve korku dolu olmadan olmaz. Onurun fazlası onlar için sessizce geliştirilecek bir şeydir ve bunu ne yaşayanlarda ne de ölülerde bağışlarlar."Bir erkeğin arzusu hiç saklanabilir mi ? Her kadın fizyonomideki birtakım sarsıntıların ilmine doğuştan vakıf değil midir ? "".Madam Düşes, Tanrı [...]


    8. A wealthy and sternly disciplined convent of the Order of Barefoot Carmelites survived the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars. It was here that the Duchesse de Langeais sought refuge after fleeing Paris.



    9. L'amour veut, malgré sa délicieuse poésie de sentiment, un peu plus de géométrie qu'on ne le pense (c)Une belle histoire qui parle de l'amour impossible. Très beau roman de Balzac qui raconte une histoire d'une duchesse qui a prix la voile après son histoire de l'amour. La Duchesse de Langeais décrit des habitudes des maîtresses et coquettes parisiennes qui étaient prêtes de manipuler des cœurs innocents juste pour le jeu. Et que la vraie amour peut les arrêter.



    10. "Iubirea trebuie să știi s-o plasezi bine, căci numai ultima iubire a unei femei poate să satisfacă prima iubire a unui bărbat"


    11. Napolyon savaşlarının sona ermesiyle yaşanan çalkantılı Bourbon restorasyon döneminde, Napolyon'un gözdesi savaş kahramanı bir general (Armand) ile dönemin soylu ailelerinden birine mensup ama fingirdek ve biraz da edepsiz bir düşes (Antoinette) arasında, 1820 'li yıllarda geçen, sonunda kızımızın (Antoinette) kendisini ulaşılması zor bir manastıra gizlediği, uyumsuz ve dolayısıyla başarısız bir aşk (tarafımca çok da tutkulu olduğu hissedilemeyen) hikayesi.


    12. One of the most beautiful passages I've ever read was the scene when Sister Therèse knows Montriveau is outside the convent and she speaks to him through the music she plays on the organ.Balzac is known for beautifully conveying the full range of human sentiment and complexity in his characters. He is also known for digressing from the storytelling to devote several pages to his detailed, didactic explanation on the current state of affairs, and so would be interesting to students of history as [...]


    13. Neste romance, Balzac escreveu um primeiro capítulo fenomenal. E um epílogo formidável. É uma narrativa da qual o cinema se apropriou com maestria. O primeiro capítulo conta uma situação dramática que, misteriosa, demanda do escritor uma explicação retrospectiva. O problema é que a retrospectiva é maçante. Balzac, como sempre, faz um panorama social (curiosamente, não tão inspirado como em outras obras), depois foca em alguns personagens, destrincha-os, para depois se confundir co [...]


    14. Hmm, it is difficult to unambiguously difine my attitude towards this novella On the one hand, the plot is quite outdated and the feminist in me is outraged - the book ends in a phrase smth like: "Only the last love of a woman can satisfy the first love of a man!" and the whole plot deals with the fact that a woman DARED not to give herself immediately to the man who decided that he loved her.But if one looks beyond the romantic and quite a bit sexist plot of the novella, one would find that the [...]


    15. Belle et triste histoire d'amour, intrigues des Treize, et aussi critique des coquettes du faubourg-Saint-Germain, . De magnifiques descriptions :"La religion dominant la vie, en en offrant sans cesse aux hommes la fin et les moyens, image tout espagnole d'ailleurs ! Jetez ce paysage au milieu de la Méditerranée, sous un ciel brûlant ; accompagnez-le de quelques palmiers, de plusieurs arbres rabougris, mais vivaces qui mêlaient leurs vertes frondaisons agitées aux feuillages sculptés de l' [...]


    16. The second of Balzac's trilogy "The Thirteen." I liked this one a bit better than "Ferragus," which was the first in the trilogy, and I'm enjoying Balzac quite a bit. His descriptions of Paris, the people and the culture are never boring, and he sets the scene beautifully. He is, however, a man of his time, and so his depictions of women in particular are a bit jarring, even for someone who's read a lot of classic literature (and who should be used to it). But the plot moves you along, as well a [...]


    17. This short novel is partly a strong indictment of the arrogant, self-indulgent class of nobles that regained ascendancy after 1815 Bourbon Restoration, but mainly Balzac tells us the story of the obsessive infatuation of a former Napoleonic military officer for a young married noblewoman. Despite the emphasis on presenting the contemporary restrictions on expressing one's true love interest, Balzac also makes us consider whether personal character traits are just as or even more important to suc [...]


    18. Encore une fois, Balzac nous offre une belle histoire d'amour impossible. Les deux sont amoureux fou l'un de l'autre mais malheureusement, la Duchesse est mariée. S'ensuit donc un bataille d'égo qui les atteindra émotivement les deux et les poussera à commettre stupidité par dessus stupidité.Les deux parties que j'ai le plus aimé sont le kidnapping de la duchesse et la fin. Dans ce livre, tout passe par les émotion que Balzac décrit à merveille. Il a très bien saisi la psychologie hum [...]


    19. I read this because Marguerite Yourceneau wrote about how remarkable it is in Memoirs of Hadrian. I agree, and it's an intoxicating read--like drinking absinthe all day. Could I read mu way through all of Balzac before dying? Perhaps. I've read some already.I've gathered my thoughts in a blog, which again gives away the plot. I've also collected some great quotes:richardswsmith.wordpress/


    20. A novella, usually bundled up with other tales by Balzac of "the Thirteen". I bought this whilst I was in Langeais (even though the town never actually features in the book). Flirting and love between the Duchesse de Langeais and General Armande de Montriveau. Lots of long speeches and descriptive text, but builds up a fantastic sense of French high society of the time through this. Note to self - must read more Balzac.


    21. it's a great book with beautiful passages in which the sound of the piano is like a sad music for the heart. I loved the fact that many passages are extraordinarily well written, I love Balzac's good writing. However, even if I loved the beggining of this book, I hated the ending. Too much pain, to much cruelty in the end.


    22. If you only read one book by Balzac, make it this one. If you don't plan on reading any books by Balzac, read it anyway. And try not to weep.


    23. Terrible et violent amour. Une très belle histoire. Désormais, Balzac devient un des mes auteurs préférés de la littérature française du XIXe siècle.


    24. well I wasn't expecting that! but there's a movie by Jacques rivette which I am now going to watch and find out what to think



    25. Mi-a facut placere sa citesc acest roman, la fel cum s-a intamplat cu toate romanele lui pe care le-am citit pana acum. Nu ma plictiseste niciodata si niciodata nu-mi da impresia ca stiu povestea.


    26. Интересен романно не бих го прочела отново защото изисква време да се прочетат големи детайли
