Publikace: THE WILD ASS´S SKIN (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - BALZAC, H. de. The first new English translation for more than 35 years of

Balzac's extraordinary novel, a compelling mixture of psychological

realism, wild fantasy, romance, and philosophy. One of the key

novels in Balzac's Comédie humaine, The Wild Ass's Skin is freshly

translated by Helen Constantine, capturing Balzac's stylistic

energy and exuberance. Wide-ranging introduction considers the

multiple perspectives of the novel, from its initial cultural and

material contexts, its conceptualization of historical change and

satirical commentary on contemporary society, to its variety of

literary genres. The first edition in English to include Balzac's

original Preface of 1831 in which he defined the challenges facing

the writer in a disenchanted world of political cynicism and

commercialized art. Extensive notes clarify Balzac's many allusions

to the culture and society of his time. Up-to-date bibliography and

helpful map of Paris in 1830. 'Who possesses me will possess all

things, But his life will belong to me...' Raphael de Valentin, a

young aristocrat, has lost all his money in the gaming parlours of

the Palais Royal in Paris, and contemplates ending his life by

throwing himself into the Seine. He is distracted by the bizarre

array of objects in a chaotic antique shop, among them a strange

animal skin, a piece of shagreen with magical properties. It will

grant its possessor his every wish, but each time a wish is

bestowed the skin shrinks, hastening its owner's death. Around this

fantastic premise Balzac weaves a compelling psychological portrait

of his hero, a prisoner of his own Promethean imagination, and

explores profound ideas about the human will, vice and virtue, love

and death. Helen Constantine's new translation captures the energy

and exuberance of Balzac's novel, one of the most engaging of his

'Études philosophiques' from the Comédie humaine. The accompanying

introduction and notes offer fresh insights into this remarkable

work. Readership: Readers of classic fiction and literature in

translation, and students and teachers of French literature and the

19th-century European novel, fantasy and the gothic. Publikace: THE WILD ASS´S SKIN (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - BALZAC, H. de. A young man, in despair over gambling debts, buys a magical animal skin that grants his every wish but hastens its owner's death in the process. Balzac's compelling tale is here presented in an exuberant new translation, with an illuminating introduction and notes.
