Rotten Reviews: Honore de Balzac

“Little imagination is shown in invention, in the creating of character and plot, or in the delineation of passion… M. de Balzac’s place in French literature will be neither considerable nor high.”

Eugene Poitou, Revue des Deux Mondes 1856

Excerpted from: Bernard, Andre, and Bill Henderson, eds. Pushcart’s Complete Rotten Reviews and Rejections. Wainscott, NY: Pushcart Press, 1998.
