Balzac's Shorter Fictions


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with an analysis of La Peau de chagrin, which is a summation of Balzac's work to date. It grows out of journal articles: Les Litanies romantiques, where it is first mentioned as ‘mon célèbre conte fantastique’ in December 1830, and Le Dernier Napoléon, which is both a typical newspaper portrait-narrative and an early version of the opening. It then examines Romans et contes philosophiques and Les Cent Contes drolatiques.

Keywords:   Balzac, journal articles, Les Litanies romantiques, newspapers
