Our heart is a treasury if you spend all its wealth at once you are ruined We find it as difficult to forgive a person for displaying his feelings in all its nakedness as we do to forgive a man for being penniless Old Goriot is the first book I have read by Balzac and it took me completely by surprise I must confess that the irony of the series title La Com die humaine The Human Comedy was initially lost on me and I had no idea I was about to open one of the most depressing books I have ever readStar ratings always feel woefully inadeuate Did I like this book Did I enjoy it Not in the slightest It made me miserable and anxious The detailed descriptions of places and people are dreary or else grotesue This story of an ageing man who is losing everything growing older and poorer and ridiculed by those around him all as a result of his own selflessness well it s painful to read It is a story which feels just so terribly unfairThat s what it is It s not fair I felt a bit like a foot stomping wailing toddler reading this book because everything seemed so very unfair And yet I guess I must in some way like wallowing in this misery because I could not stop reading in wide eyed horror Enjoyable it may not be but compelling it definitely wasBalzac begins with a richly detailed description of Madame Vauer s dismal boarding house Into this wander our characters A couple of older men and women a young woman cut off from her father s fortune a criminal in hiding Eug ne de Rastignac a young and ambitious student and Monsieur Goriot who is known by the mocking name of Old Goriot This latter is regarded with ridicule by his fellow boarders as someone who has blown his money on mistresses and other frivolities Eug ne de Rastignac s social ambitions lead him to uncover the truth about Old Goriot a truth which he uses to his own advantage Balzac was writing about a very interesting time in French society offering not so subtle criticisms of the ruthless social ambitions people held Madame de Beauseant tells us The cold blooded your calculations the further you will go Strike ruthlessly you will be feared Men and women for you must be nothing than post horses take a fresh relay and leave the last to drop by the roadside in this way you will reach the goal of your ambition Old Goriot is a victim of this emerging culture blinded by an unconditional love for those too concerned with social climbing to give him the time of day It is a bleak picture that the author paints one where money social status fancy clothes and upper class balls have become far important than love and kindness Expect misery from start to finish and one instance of particularly revolting racism I m making it sound wonderful aren t I I guess it all depends whether you read to feel good or read to have your heart ripped outBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

These relics are historical artifacts to be marveled at for prolonged semi meditative snatches of time are essential to readers educations I found much of value in this my first novel by Balzac mostly in how sad sociological circumstances can be how nothing much changes when money is the main ingredient in how a person s life shall beThis is a tragedy perhaps not as Shakespearean as one would like or ironic it naturally follows its predestined course the entire time but it IS full of woe is meisms melancholy in the treatment of one human from one class to another the surplus description that s a signature of Balzac is no detractor in being so faithful with his worlds rooms of wondrous decrepitude it paints a world no longer alive though themes are eternal as well as a type of novel no longer being written
