Balzac, Honoré de (17991850)

Balzac, Honoré de, native of Tours, in France; one of the most brilliant as well as prolific novelwriters of modern times; his productions remarkable for their sense of reality; they show power of observation, warmth and fertility of imagination, and subtle and profound delineation of human passion, his design in producing them being to make them form part of one great work, the “Comédie Humaine,” the whole being a minute dissection of the different classes of society (17991850).
