La Comédie Humaine: 08 - Scènes de la vie de province tome 4

by Honoré de Balzac

La Comédie humaine est le titre sous lequel Honoré de Balzac a regroupé un ensemble de plus de quatre-vingt-dix ouvrages — romans, nouvelles, contes et essais — de genres réaliste, romantique, fantastique ou philosophique, et dont l’écriture s’échelonne de 1829 à 1850. Par cette œuvre, Balzac veut faire une « histoire naturelle de la société », explorant de façon systématique les groupes sociaux et les rouages de la société, afin de brosser une vaste fresque de son époque susceptible de servir de référence aux générations futures.
