A kind-hearted and idealistic youth enters the grasping Parisian society of the 1820s, where his education in the realities and costs of city life begin among the residents of a shabby but respectable boardinghouse. 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. Acclaimed by critic Leslie Stephen as "the modern King Lear, " it offers a timeless view of the tragedies behind the prosaic details of everyday life. Translated by Ellen Marriage.
