Description

Excerpt from The Magic Skin, And, the Quest of the Absolute: And Other Stories Volumes, ' almost libraries, have been written about Balzac and perhaps of very few writers, putting aside the three or four greatest of all, is it so difficult to select one or a few short phrases which will in any way denote them, much more sum them up. Yet the five words quoted above, which come from an early letter to his sister when as yet he had not found his way, characterize him, I think, better than at least some of the volumes I have read about him, and supply, when they are properly understood, the most valuable of all keys and companions for his comprehension.
