A major theme in Balzac's The Human Comedy is brilliantly depicted in this story of a person's obsession with the pursuit of money and achieving power. Balzac is generally considered to be the creator of realism in the novel. This work was first published in 1833, a period in Balzac's career where he produced more than 20 works in one three year span (1832-35).
