    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. Morire due volte«Enfin, toutes les horreurs que les romanciers croient inventer sont toujours au-dessous de la vérité» : è una delle amarissime considerazioni pronunciate dall’avvocato Derville al termine di questo breve romanzo di Honoré de Balzac che ebbi occasione di scoprire, qualche anno fa, grazie a “Gli innamoramenti” di Javier Marías (per la serie, quando i libri suggeriscono, inaspettatamente, altri libri!).Una storia davvero triste, quella del povero colonnello Hyacinthe C [...]


    2. Colonelul Chabert, unul din eroi luptei de la Eylau, fiind crezut mort , este aruncat intr-o groapa comuna, de unde reuseste in cele din urma sa scape.Dupa ce este ingrijit de o familie de oameni inimosi, ajunge intr-un azil de nebuni, din cauza afirmatiilor cum ca el ar fi colonelul Chabert.Intors la Paris, total schimbat din cauza ranilor , nu reuseste sa devina mai credibil in fata oamenilor, care aflasera de moartea colonelului pe campul de lupta.Pana la urma, un tanar avocat ii asculta pove [...]


    3. A litmus test for the betrothed—would you, after your man’s been killed in the latest war, pronounced dead and buried, and after you’ve married again and had children, take your man back when he turns up haggard and pauperous on your mansion doorstep? (Yes, this happens at the end of Tom Hanks’s Castaway, minus the mansion, but Balzac got there first in this novella). Well, WOULD YOU? When the bedraggled Colonel finally falls in with some solicitors who help his case, he hopes for once a [...]


    4. "Farão os mortos muito mal em voltar?" Esta interrogação pode parecer, à primeira vista, um paradoxo, uma ideia inusitada concebida no mais puro sentido do irreal, do invulgar e, até mesmo, do inconcebível. O que me fez decidir pela leitura desta pequena novela de Balzac foi, precisamente, o facto de tê-la encontrado mencionada de forma efusiva e detalhada, em "Os Enamoramentos" do autor espanhol Javier Marías, tendo logo despertado a minha curiosidade. A questão que se coloca, em ambas [...]


    5. One of the largest mental readjustments I had to make when I started reading Balzac was in my picture of Napoléon. Being brought up in England, I was used to thinking of him as an evil megalomaniac, who nearly destroyed Europe and was only stopped by the heroic efforts of Admiral Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. How wrong I was! Of course, I now saw that he represented all that was good and heroic about France; after him, it just descended into pathetic bickering and intriguing. Poor Colonel [...]


    6. This 1832 novella by Honoré de Balzac addresses a theme dealt with by many authors over the years, the return of a presumed dead husband after his “widow” has remarried. In this instance, Colonel Chabert, a favorite of Napoleon, had been seen to receive a grievous and presumably lethal wound on the battlefield and was subsequently buried in a mass grave from which local farmers rescued him. Amnesiac for several years, he was cared for in an asylum. Finally recovering his memories, he sets o [...]


    7. 3 MAY 2016 - reading with the 19th Century Literature Group at Yahoo. These ladies read the absolute best books. I am enjoying the words right off the page with this one. Free download at Project Gutenberg - gutenberg/ebooks/19546 MAY 2016 - fantastic read! The ending brought tears to my eyes. P.S. I must read more of Balzac.


    8. EL CORONEL CHABERT. De Honoré de Balzac."Iré hasta la base de la columna de la place Vendôme —exclamó—; ahí gritaré: «¡ Soy el coronel Chabert, que embistió contra los rusos en Eylau!». El bronce sí que me reconocerá."Aunque ligera y muy rápida de leer tiene algunos conceptos profundos que te puede dejar esta pequeña novela de la "Comedia Humana" de Balzac.El coronel Chabert dirige una de las partes de la legendaria carga de caballería a órdenes del mariscal Murat durante la [...]


    9. A war hero returns from the dead to haunt the living. The struggle of the forgotten and dispossessed to reclaim lost property is a favorite premise for novelists, revolutionaries, and postwar French philosophers alike. Count of Monte Cristo, Marx and Engels' Communist Manifesto, and Derrida's reading of Marx are what immediately come to mind.There are a lot of Vietnam veteran movies that used this story as well."I was buried under the dead, now I am buried under the living, under the whole of so [...]


    10. un roman serieux du romancier serieux. A lire certainement, cet ecrivain qui a ecrit une vaste epopee du XlX siecle. Un ecrivain comme Balzac qui a cree un univers, un tout requiert de la patience, un travail d'analyse, tel Homere


    11. 4,5 estrellasEn esta novela corta Honoré de Balzac. La cual forma parte de La Comedia Humana. Nos muestra hasta que punto puede llegar la traición, los limites de la ambición y la injusticia de los hombres. Fiel reflejo de la sociedad de su tiempo y que transciende a la actual. "En fin, todos lo horrores que los novelistas creen inventar están siempre por debajo de la verdad".


    12. Colonel Chabert marries Rose Chapotel, a prostitute. Colonel Chabert then becomes a French cavalry officer who is held in high esteem by Napoleon Bonaparte. After being severely wounded in the Battle of Eylau (1807), Chabert is recorded as dead and buried with other French casualties. However, he survives and after extricating himself from his own grave is nursed back to health by local peasants.The English version can be found at Project Gutenberg.The original French text at La Bibliothèque é [...]


    13. I like Balzac's short stories better than his novels. Le Colonel Chabert is a morality of a colonel who returns from the dead. He was buried alive after a battle in one of Napoleon's wars, but managed to get out from a pile of bodies. After some years he comes back to Paris and finds out his wife has remarried. He tries to get back his wife and fortune, but the wife is too clever for him. He loses even his name and reputation as one of the heroes of the war.I really liked the characters here and [...]


    14. Ah, Le Colonel Chabert! Pithy, beautiful, depressing. However, if you rave about this too much, you risk your friend (who happens to be getting her PhD in Literature, and should be above such things) giggling when you talk about how much you love Balzac. Say it out loud. Yeah. So funny.


    15. "Signore - chiese Derville rivolgendosi al vecchio - a chi ho l'onore di parlare? "Al colonnello Chabert" "Quale?" "Quello che è morto a Eylau", rispose il vecchio---------------------Inserito nel grande affresco della Commedia Umana, "Il colonnello Chabert" ricostruisce il dramma di un ufficiale napoleonico ritenuto morto nella battaglia di Eylau dove comandava un reggimento di cavalleria che ha travolto le linee russe.Dato per morto sugli atti ufficiali, vaga per anni da un ospedale prussiano [...]


    16. I think this is probably the first Balzac I have read.I certainly OWN one or two from A level French days many years ago, but not sure I ever read themAnyway, it's short, very meaty, with detailed and moving descriptions of the very poor and the very rich. No surprise that there is a long discussion of the book on a Socialist website (interesting too). It was a bit hard to read in French - much harder than Le Chevalier de Maison Rouge, which I also read recently. Certainly HB is much more highly [...]


    17. COLONEL CHABERT. (1832; trans. 1997). Honore de Balzac. ***.This novella from Balzac gives us a story that has been repeated by the literature after almost every war ever fought. A soldier is seriously wounded in battle. He is presumed dead by his comrades, and buried along with them in a common grave. He isn’t dead, but it is quite a while before he can free himself from under a mass of bodies and make his way back to his outfit. He had been horribly wounded during the attack and was essentia [...]


    18. In 1807 Colonel Chabert, Napoleon's beloved commander, is severely wounded in the Battle of Eylau. Taken for dead and buried in a mass grave, he manages to escape and wanders in poverty through Europe for 10 years, torn between life and death, oblivion and consciousness. When he finally returns to France, he seeks Maître Derville's legal advice, to reclaim his name, his properties and the wife, who is now remarried to Count Ferraud, a member of the aristocracy. Chabert is painfully aware that t [...]


    19. Avis aux intéressés, voici un des romans les plus digestes qu'ait écrit Balzac. Un des plus court aussi, si je ne m'abuse.Vous comprendrez donc que l'intrigue est simple : un homme à l'allure de mendiant se présente dans un cabinet et dit être le colonel Chabert, mort à Eylau.Après une discussion incroyablement longue pendant laquelle il raconte toute ses péripéties, la raison de sa venue devient clair : sa femme, en possession de tous les biens du "défunt", refuse de le reconnaître [...]


    20. One of Balzac's best novellas, with none of the padding out that afflicts some of his works. It opens in a lawyer's office where the junior staff are making fun of a shabbily-dressed client. The client turns out to be Colonel Chabert, a hero from the Napoleonic wars who was pronounced dead and buried alive after being very severely wounded in a battle where his actions helped secure a French victory. Some years later, after periods of amnesia and of being regarded as a madman, he returns to Pari [...]


    21. Balzac is a giant of literature. You just have to read this minute novella to fully appreciate the creative power, his mastery of language and the deep vivid intelligence that makes him to stand out among the best in portraying wonderfully men and women of his age. In few pages Balzac packs a fascinating tale of a Napoleonic good-natured hero left for dead in Russia: buried alive in a common grave, he manages to return to Paris where enlists lawyer Monsieur Derville in the attempt to regain back [...]


    22. One of Napoleon's favored colonels is left for dead in a battle in eastern europe. He awakes to find himself buried alive and seriously injured. Rescued by farmers, he spends years recovering in an insane asylum claiming he is a colonel to disbelievers. He returns to Paris to claim his fortune from his former wife, who has used his money to raise her status in society and marry into an aristocratic life. The attorney in this story is the most clever of all characters. Made into a movie in the 90 [...]



    23. Ce livre a été ma première lecture obligatoire de Seconde—et je n’est presque rien compris. Comme le français n’est pas la langue natale, j’ai eu quelques difficultés pour le comprendre, mais j’ai bien aimé le style d’écriture de Balzac, et peut-être que plus tard je lirais plus de c’est œuvre. En réalité, c’est très probable, en considérant que je veux faire L l’année prochaine


    24. O Fortuna, the many names you take, the many names you have, the many writers who have given you hundreds of pages.


    25. O coronel Chabert é dado como morto em batalha e após quase 20 anos reaparece vivinho da silva. Mas tudo está mudado: sua esposa, atual condessa Ferraud, acreditando-se viúva casa-se novamente, o cenário político de Paris é outro e o coronel precisa provar sua identidade a fim de recuperar sua pensão, fortuna e principalmente, seu lugar na sociedade parisiense. Para isso procura o famoso advogado Derville, presente em outros processos da comédia humana.Amei a primeira parte do livro em [...]


    26. Along with The Unknown Masterpiece, one of Balzac's best stories from his La Comédie Humaine. In his own amazing way, Balzac was slicing open French society as he saw it at the time, but his insight into human behavior still rings true in modern times (especially in this age of financial collapse with the repercussions mostly hitting individuals instead of business interests). The writing is sharp, full of Balzac's wit and deep human understanding, and you can't help but love descriptions such [...]


    27. "Sapete, mio caro che nella società esistono tre tipi di uomini, il prete, il medico e l'uomo di legge, che non possono aver stima del mondo? Vestono con abiti neri, forse perchè portano il lutto per tutte le virtù, per tutte le illusioni. Il più sfortunato dei tre è l'avvocato. Quando un uomo si reca dal prete, è spinto dal pentimento, dal rimorso, da una fede che lo rende meritevole, lo rialza e consola l'anima del mediatore, nel cui compito c'è una specie di rallegramento: purifica, r [...]


    28. Yes, this is another of those reclaiming-identity stories, but it is masterfully done. Colonel Chabert was certified dead but had a miraculous escape, only to be locked up in a mental institution for claiming to be a dead man. When finally released he seeks help from the wily lawyer Derville, but finds no remedy there because Derville is also representing his opportunistic wife. The final scenes are poignant in the extreme. Another casualty of war.


    29. 2h30 d'écoute - Lu par M-G Séré - Une histoire intéressante, celle d'un homme d'abord enterré sous les morts, puis nié chez les vivants. Cela m'a donné l'envie de voir les adaptions faites au cinéma
