Price: $2.99
A Daughter of Eve by Honore de Balzac is one of the classic stories by the author. It is highly admirable for its style and diction, along with uniquely lengthy narration. In the opening chapter of the novel, Balzac introduces two sisters: Madame Felix de Vandenesse and Madame du Tillet, who are Marie-Angelique and Marie-Eugenie respectively. Angelique is weeping and Eugenie is trying to comfort her, but admits that her marriage is not a happy one and Angelique should not look to her for help. Balzac then explains their background. They are sweet girls, and very innocent, because their mother, the Comtesse de Granville is a religious fanatic. Prior to their marriage they had never been into society nor been to the theatre or a ball. Their father deplores his wife’s excesses but has largely abandoned the girls to their mother because he thinks there is no middle course with daughters: either they are educated, flighty, and have no religion or they are ignorant and innocent.
