Cousin Bette (Barnes & Noble Digital Library)eBook - 2011
Set in Paris, Cousin Bette tells the story of an unmarried middle-aged woman who plots the destruction of her extended family. As in many of Balzac's novels, its characters represent polarities of contrasting morality. Critics hailed the book as a turning point in the author's art a prototypical naturalist text. Written in only two months, it is Balzac's last great work.
