For anyone who is learning French and is wondering whether nineteenth century novels might be too hard I would suggest you give it a go. In many ways I find classic French novels, including those by Zola, Hugo etc. easier to read than contemporary fiction as the grammar is very correct and you don't get the idiom and modern cultural references that many English speakers find difficult. In any case Balzac is a wonderful writer, less given to enormous diversions from the plot than Hugo, and less depressing than Zola. Start off with something like Eugenie Grandet. Give it a try.
Where we do not read the novels of manners, for which Balzac is so celebrated, we find more philosophical items. Yet the most interesting personally is the introduction by the author himself, well worth the time reading before beginning his work.
At the end of this great collection of work there can be found useful commentary and a bibliography.
In all, a useful and interesting collection of a celebrated author's work, for language appreciation and enjoyment of good stories full of character,dipping into and more concentrated study.
When I have a free week-end I will have time to re-acquaint myself with his output.

I am still only part reading this but I have already noticed many spelling errors (verb endings in particular) which would have sent poor Balzac mad!Published on 31 Mar. 2014 by Mrs L.
Fantastic in every respect. It's wonderful to be able to download the complete works for such an incredibly low price.
