EXTRAIT:  Par un soir du mois de novembre 1793, les principaux personnages de Carentan se trouvaient dans le salon de madame de Dey, chez laquelle l’assemblée se tenait tous les jours. Quelques circonstances qui n’eussent point attiré l’attention d’une grande ville, mais qui devaient fortement en préoccuper une petite, prêtaient à ce rendez-­vous habituel un intérêt inaccoutumé. La surveille, madame de Dey avait fermé sa porte à sa société, qu’elle s’était encore dispensée de recevoir la veille, en prétextant d’une indisposition. En temps ordinaire, ces deux événements eussent fait à Carentan le même effet que produit à Paris un relâche à tous les théâtres. Ces jours-­là, l’existence est en quelque sorte incomplète.

Honoré de Balzac was a French novelist and playwright. His magnum opus was a sequence of short stories and novels collectively entitled, La Comédie humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the 1815 fall of Napoleon. 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 multifaceted characters, who are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human. His writing influenced many subsequent novelists such as Marcel Proust, Émile Zola, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Gustave Flaubert, Benito Pérez Galdós, Marie Corelli, Henry James, William Faulkner, Jack Kerouac, and Italo Calvino, and philosophers such as Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. Many of Balzac's works have been made into or have inspired films, and they are a continuing source of inspiration for writers, filmmakers and critics.-­wikipedia

Classic novel. According to Wikipedia: "Honore de Balzac (May 20, 1799 - August 18, 1850) was a nineteenth-­century French novelist and playwright. His magnum opus was a sequence of almost 100 novels and plays collectively entitled La Comedie humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the fall of Napoleon 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.­"

Un des mythes fondateurs de l'histoire de la condition f?­minine. Avec La Femme de trente ans, le th?­me imm?­morial de l'?­mancipation des femmes sort de la fable ou de l'illusion comique pour s'ins?­rer dans le contexte de la soci?­t? lib?­rale issue de la r?­volution de 1830. La libert? politique, c'est aussi, pour la femme jusque-­l? enferm?­e dans se devoirs d'?­pouse et de g?­nitrice, le droit ? l'ind?­pendance moral et au d?­sir. ?? trente ans?, l'h?­ro?­ne de Balzac d?­couvre que non seulement elle peut encore ?­tre aim?­e mais qu'il ne lui est plus interdit de devenir un ?­tre humain ? part enti?­re. Au prix de quelles luttes! Comme l'?­crit Pierre Barb?­ris, ?­Balzac a d?­couvert la femme de trente ans comme Marx a d?­couvert le prol?­tariat?.
