Massimilla Doni by Honoré de Balzac( )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 1,835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Massimilla Doni, Balzac tells the story of the conflict between ideal and real love. Emilio Memmi loves the duchesse de Cataneo (Missimilla Doni), who has taken the game of social flirtation farther than she anticipated, making their union impossible since the game now overpowers and obscures her true emotion. At the same time, the famous singer Tinti is appearing at la Fenice, and Emilio becomes captivated by her, and she by him. A long scene at la Fenice puts la Tinti on stage singing in Rossini's opera, Mosè, while Massimilla Doni explains the function of the music and lyrics to a French doctor visiting Venice. Emilio, a witness to the musicological explanation, slowly realizes that his attraction to and pleasure with la Tinti represents only an approximation of his love and admiration for Massimilla. In Emilio's eyes, there is a kind of spar between the blessed love of this white soul and the love of the excitable and hotheaded Sicilian

The human comedy : selected stories by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

27 editions published between 1895 and 1901 in English and French and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We think of Honore Balzac as the author of long and fully upholstered novels, stitched together into the magnificent visionary document called The Human Comedy. Yet along with the full-length fiction within The Human Comedy stand many shorter works, and it's here that we get some of his most daring explorations of crime, sexuality, and artistic creation. As Marcel Proust noted, it is in these tales that we detect, under the surface, the mysterious circulation of blood and desire. All are newly translated by three outstanding translators who restore the freshness of Balzac's vivid and highly colored prose"--
