Overview

La Femme de trente ans by Honore de Balzac

La femme de trente ans, qui est-elle? Mariée, elle est au sommet de sa vie, car c'est là qu'elle prend sa liberté, c'est-à-dire un amant, ce dont Balzac la félicite, mais que la société punit cruellement. Voici donc l'un des romans les plus engagés de Balzac, dans lequel il dénonce la condition des femmes, mariées à des hommes dont elles découvrent trop tard les défauts, et vieilles déjà à la moitié de leur vie. L'auteur constate l'échec du mariage d'amour et, avec ces enfants nés sans amour, l'échec de la maternité. Cette histoire sombre, où la sexualité joue un rôle étonnamment moderne, est traitée avec une grande liberté de ton : le roman historique croise le roman-feuilleton, et jusqu'aux histoires de pirates.

About the Author

Honoré de Balzac (May 20, 1799 - August 18, 1850), born Honoré Balzac, was a nineteenth-century French novelist and playwright. His work, much of which is a sequence (or Roman-fleuve) of almost 100 novels and plays collectively entitled La Comédie humaine, is a broad, often satirical panorama of French society, particularly the petite bourgeoisie, in the years after the fall of Napoléon Bonaparte in 1815-namely the period of the Restoration (1815-1830) and the July Monarchy (1830-1848).

Along with Gustave Flaubert (whose work he influenced), Balzac is generally regarded as a founding father of realism in European literature. Balzac's novels, most of which are farcical comedies, feature a large cast of well-defined characters, and descriptions in exquisite detail of the scene of action. He also presented particular characters in different novels repeatedly, sometimes as main protagonists and sometimes in the background, in order to create the effect of a consistent 'real' world across his novelistic output. He is the pioneer of this style.
