Best Honore de Balzac Quotes On Love at starsquotes

Honoré de Balzac (20 May 1799-18 August 1850) was a French playwright and novelist. The sequence of the novel La Comédie humaine, which depicts a panorama of French post-Napoleonic life, is commonly seen as its magnum opus. Balzac is known as one of the pioneers of realism in European literature, owing to his acute observation of detail and unfiltered portrayal of society. He is known for his multifaceted characters; even his minor characters are nuanced, morally ambiguous and completely human. Inanimate objects are also imbued with character; the town of Paris, a setting for most of its literature, assumes many human qualities. Several popular authors inspired his fiction, including novelists Émile Zola, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, and Henry James, filmmaker François Truffaut, as well as influential thinkers including Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx.
