Fusing romance and realism in a unique, gripping style, Balzac wrote more than 90 novels and tales in which he endowed the lives of his seemingly ordinary characters with a highly melodramatic gloss. This choice new collection presents readers with original translations of five of great French writer's most acclaimed stories. In 'The Unknown Masterpiece,' a painter becomes obsessed with this search for utter perfection.
Two of the other stories explore the consequences of the quest for worldly wealth. This modestly priced edition will also appeal to those already acquainted with the author's much-imitated but unsurpassed style. In more than ninety novels, he set forth French society and life as he saw it.
He created a cast of over two thousand individual and identifiable characters, some of whom reappear in different novels. Richard Howard was born in Cleveland in He is the author of fourteen volumes of poetry and has published more than one hundred fifty translations from the French, including works by Gide, Stendhal, de Beauvoir, Baudelaire, and de Gaulle. Arthur C. Danto was the Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University, art critic for The Nation , and author of many books about art and philosophy.
