Pere Goriot (Oxford World's Classics). If you have never read anything by Balzac before, then prepare yourself for an adventure. For one thing, as Balzac's intrepid biographer notes, it is a bit odd that "Pere Goriot" has become the of choice. Not only do crime, corruption, and vanity reach levels which shock the average reader, Balzac also slips in the first case of a huge attraction of an older man for a younger man.

Oxford world’s classics. HONORÉ DE BALZAC was born in 1799 at Tours, the son of a civil servant. Put out to nurse and sent later to boarding-school, he had, except between the ages of four and eight, little contact with home. In 1814 the family moved to Paris, where Honoré continued his boarding-school education for two years, and then studied law at the Sorbonne. In other Balzac novels we see how thoughts and emotions rooted in the routine circumstances of everyday life produce surprisingly extended ramifications.
