In my mind, this edition is the translation of Balzac that sets the standard. The words do not just translate from the dictionary, but from context and understanding of the author's intent, as well. Highly recommended.

It was a pick for my reading group. We are enjoying discussing this novel in our class. New is not necessarily better.

When I picked up "Pere Goriot" about a year ago, I had only vaguely heard of Balzac and had a sense of "cultural obligation" in reading one of his works. While it took me a while to get rolling on the novel, it soon proved impossible to put down -- a work of incredible depth and beauty, combining the vividness of Lawrence, the emotional power of Dickens, and the universality of Shakespeare. I'll admit I haven't read the other novel -- "Eugenie Grandet" -- in this collection, but "Pere Goriot" was a reading experience I will not soon forget. Don't miss it!
