  • "Through parental love Goriot is willingly reduced to poverty so that he may satisfy the demands of his well-married but debt-ridden daughters."@en
  • "At the shabby boarding house in the rue Neuve-Sainte-Geneviève, petty Madame Vauquer and her tenants wonder at the plight of the aging resident Goriot. Once a well-heeled merchant, Goriot was--at first--afforded special treatment from the Madame. But now something is clearly amiss in his financial affairs, and his increasingly tawdry appearance makes him a subject of ridicule in the household. Some think he lost in the markets, others see him as a lecherous patron of prostitutes, but one thing is clear: his selflessness and complete devotion to his two daughters."@en

  • "This book contrasts the social progress of an impoverished but ambitious aristocrat with the tale of a father, whose obsessive love for his daughters leads to his personal and financial ruin."
  • "Un des premiers chefs-d'oevre realistes de Honore de Balzac, ou il peint les moeurs de son temps (le debut du 19e siecle) et les types humains. Le Pere Goriot, ancien industriel, viellard de soixante-neuf ans environ, s'etait reitre dans un pension triste et pauvre a Paris. Il etait venu avec sa garde-robe magnifique de l'homme d'affaires et une nombreuse argenterie. Il s'est ruine et condamne a une vie miserable pour assurer une existence luxueuse a ses deux filles, qui l'exploitent pour obtenir de l'argent et du pouvoir. - Back cover."
  • "Le texte intégral est accompagné d'une introduction présentant l'auteur, l'oeuvre (schéma narratif, genèse et sources, critiques et jugements) ainsi qu'un parcours thématique sur la vie au XIXe siècle et le roman de formation permettant à l'élève d'approfondir sa réflexion."
  • "Le père Goriot a fait fortune dans le commerce du vermicelle et des pâtes d'Italie. Maintenant il songe à se retirer des affairés, afin de trouver pour ses filles chéries, Delphine et Anastasic, un brillant mariage; car toutes deux veulent être comtesses, ou au moins baronnes. Et comment un noble consentirait-il à épouser la fille d'un marchand de vermicelle? Ce n'est pas toutefois sans un vif regret que le brave homme dit adieu à ses pâtes et à ses farines; c'est au milieu d'elles qu'il voudrait vivre et mourir : ne l'ont-elles pas fait millionnaire? mais il le faut, ses filles l'exigent; et le père Goriot vend son fonds de vermicellier."

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. A supreme observer and chronicler of nineteenth-century French society, Honoré de Balzac wrote a vast number of novels and short stories collectively known as The Human Comedy. These books were unsurpassed for their narrative drive and scope, their large casts of vibrant, diverse, and interesting characters, and their obsessive interest in and examination of virtually all spheres of life. The greatest of these novels is Père Goriot, which opens in a dirty boarding-house where three of the novel's main characters live. Goriot is a father who sacrifices his wealth and health so that his two daughters can gain access to Parisian high society. He pays off their debts, succumbs to their lavish demands, and receives nothing but scorn in return. His fellow boarder is the mysterious Vautrin, one of Balzac's most remarkable creations. A criminal mastermind, Vautrin recognizes that the social contract is nothing but a fraud for those without money and power. Finally, there is Rastignac, who represents one of Balzac's favorite themes—the ambitious young provincial fighting for advancement in the competitive world of Paris. With Goriot and Vautrin acting as surrogate fathers, Rastignac begins his climb up the social ladder—only to discover that there is a spiritual cost to be paid for life's apparent prizes. Peter Connor is Associate Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Barnard College, Columbia University. He is the author of Georges Bataille and the Mysticism of Sin (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2000). He has translated Bataille's The Tears of Eros (City Lights Press, 1989), as well as many works in the area of contemporary French philosophy, including The Inoperative Community, by Jean-Luc Nancy (University of Minnesota Press, 1991)."
  • "Le texte est précédé d'une riche introduction et d'un tableau chronologique, accompagné de notes lexicales et historiques, suivi d'une bibliographie exhaustive. De nombreuses questions d'analyse permettent d'éclaircir les aspects thématiques stylistiques et narratologiques du récit."
  • "A kindhearted and idealistic youth enters the grasping Parisian society of the 1820s, starting at a shabby but respectable boardinghouse, the Pension Vauquer. Eugene de Rastignac has entered in the glittering capital to make his fortune, and his friendships with the pension's other residents introduce him to the realities and costs of city life. Pere Goriot- one of the outstanding novels in 'The Human Comedy', Balzac's panoramic study of Parisian life- features richly detailed settings, a skillfully related plot, and a vibrant cast of characters. Young Rastignac's acquaintance with the elderly widower Goriot, a formerly wealthy merchant impoverished by the demands of his fashionable daughters, lies at the heart of this story of love and greed. This book offers a timeless view of the tragedies behind the prosaic details of everyday life."@en

  • "The protagonists of the story are Eugene, a young and poor law student, and old man Goriot, the aging father of two narcissistic daughters who live in the upper strata of Parisian society. Eugene is invited to a ball held by his cousin, a countess, and falls in love with the beautiful people and their world. He is determined to be a part of it. Vautrin, a fellow boarder, a wise street philosopher, and prototype for modern day CEOs, tells Eugene that money is everything. Eugene promptly appropriates every cent of his family's savings to buy the clothes that will allow him to blend in with the aristocracy. Soon he meets Goriot's aristocratic daughters and falls in love with one of them. These two grasping young ladies, in their need for the necessities in life (fine clothing and jewelry), have taken so much money from their formerly wealthy father that he now lives in abject poverty, sleeping on a moldy straw mattress in Madame Vauquer's boarding house."
  • "A father's love for his daughters degrades into obsession, in an evocative novel of nineteenth-century French society that offers a commentary on wealth, human desire, ambition, and despair."
  • "A dichotomy of human values appears as Bronowski parries with two college students about violence as an 'ancient and symbolic gesture of man'"
  • "A Paris, la misérable pension Vauquer héberge le Père Goriot et Eugène de Rastignac. Goriot, aveuglé par la tendresse qu'il porte à ses filles, est peu à peu dépouillé de tous ses biens par celles-ci, alors que Rastignac, étudiant pauvre et ambitieux, venu de province, fait son éducation sentimentale et perd son innocence au contact du cynique Vautrin."
  • "Un père est peu à peu dépouillé de tous ses biens par ses filles, qu'il aime d'une tendresse aveugle. Parallèlement, est contée l'éducation sentimentale d'un jeune provincial, Eugène de Rastignac.Texte intégral suivi d'un dossier pédagogique comprenant une fiche d'identité de l'auteur, des repères chronologiques, une fiche d'identité de l'oeuvre, les clefs de lecture...--[Memento]."
  • "Rastignac est un jeune provincial qui cherche à s'insérer dans la société parisienne. Il lui manque les manières et l'argent. Pour parvenir, il côtoie les femmes du monde, mais reste attaché à son voisin de la pension Vauquer, le père Goriot, vieillard malheureux abandonné de ses filles. Vautrin, forçat évadé, Marsay, politicien ambitieux, et Rubempré, écrivain talentueux, sont animés du même désir de pouvoir. Ils apprennent, chacun à leur manière, les complicités et les alliances indispensables dans une société gouvernée par les intérêts. Seules figures du désintéressement : le père Goriot, vaincu par son amour paternel, et Mme de Beauséant, abandonnée du Tout-Paris. La passion bout dans cette maison comme dans une cocotte-minute, les pages se tournent toutes seules; c'est que chaque palier de la pension Vauquer est devenu un étage de ce que Balzac vient de concevoir: La Comédie humaine."
  • "A new translation of a French classic, the story of a father blindly devoted to an undeserving daughter. By the translator of Rabelais' Gargantua and Pantagruel, for which he won a prize."
  • "Eugene wants to get on in the world. So he has come to Paris, where the streets teem with chancers, criminals, and social climbers-and everyone is out for what he can get. When he finds a place to stay at a shabby boarding house, he sees the potential to make a fortune in two beautiful, aristocratic women who visit the lonely old lodger Goriot. Could they bring Eugene the status and acceptance he craves? Nothing is as it seems in Paris, however, and soon he is over his head in a world of greed and obsession."
  • "Outre le texte intégral du Père Goriot, on trouvera ici un ensemble d'extraits de La comédie humaine éclairant et prolongeant quelques-uns des thèmes de ce roman où Balzac met définitivement au point la technique du retour des personnages."
  • "At the shabby boarding house in the rue Neuve-Sainte-Genevieve, petty Madame Vauquer and her tenants wonder at the plight of the aging resident Goriot.

Blinded by his love for his children, Pere Goriot can not see their flaws and gives them everything they ask for even though the giving destroys him. A cautionary tale about the dangers of placing society and money before all else."@en
