About Honoré de Balzac
French writer Honoré de Balzac, born in 1799 in Tours, is considered the father of European realism. He produced a vast collection of novels and short stories, collectively known as "La Comédie humaine" (The Human Comedy). His topics range from political intrigue in Paris to quiet country family life. He wrote for up to 15 hours a day and revised obsessively. He married Evelina Hanska in 1850 after an 18-year correspondence and died just five months later.
