Cousin Bette4,09 11 5 Scritto da: Honoré de Balzac Letto da: Johanna Ward
A profound examination of obsessive passion, this masterpiece exemplifies what Henry James described as Balzac’s “huge, all-compassing, all-desiring, all-devouring love of reality.” One of Balzac's “scenes of Parisian life,” Cousin Bette offers a hypnotic vision of the infinitely varied city during the bright, vital, and scandalous era of King Louis-Philippe. The courtesans, swindlers, bankers, artists, murderers, detectives, and saints that pass before us blaze with an unsurpassed vividness and energy.
