Read full description of the books:
Questo breve racconto è uno dei più perfetti di Balzac, un capolavoro di densità di scrittura che ha affascinato artisti grandissimi quali Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso, che nel 1931 ne illustrò una stupenda edizione e che, ancora nel 1959, ebbe a dire: “Questo è il meraviglioso di Frenhofer (il protagonista del racconto): che alla fine non si riesce a vedere altro che se stessi. Egli, a causa della sua perenne ricerca della realtà, cade nella più buia oscurità. Ci sono tante realtà diverse che, a volerle abbracciare tutte, si piomba nel buio”. “Il capolavoro sconosciuto” ha ispirato anche il cinema: è del 1991 la realizzazione del film di Jacques Rivette “La bella scontrosa” con Michel Piccoli nel ruolo del protagonista del racconto.

Read information about the authorHonoré 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 Comédie humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the fall of Napoléon 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, Émile 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 Comédie 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 more than one friend over critical reviews. In 1850, he married Ewelina Hańska, his longtime paramour; he died five months later.
