Brief description: Something along the lines of Dorian Gray as part of the Comedies Humane Philosophique, this is Balzac’s first successful novel. He even wrote “criticisms” of the writing himself in promotion of the book, in addition to hyping the work before it even came out. It is a criticism of materialism and French bourgeoisie as so many of his compiled works seek to be. Some same characters reappear.
