Per essere felici nella vita di coppia bisogna essere un uomo di genio sposato con una donna tenera e intelligente, oppure ritrovarsi, per effetto di una coincidenza che non è tanto comune quanto si potrebbe pensare, tutti e due particolarmente stupidi. L’ironia punzecchiante di sentenze come questa pervade l’intera scrittura delle Piccole miserie della vita coniugale (184 ...more

Приятния стил прави книгата много лека за четене, а верността на наблюденията я правят доста забавна. Пълно е с чудесни мисли, написани по прекрасен начин:

"Общо правило: Никой мъж не е открил начин да даде приятелски съвет на никоя жена, дори на своята."
"За да бъдете щастлив в семейството си, трябва или да сте гениален мъж, женен за нежна и умна жена, или по някаква случайност, която далеч не е така обикновена, както би могло да се предполага, да се окажете и двата кръгли глупаци."

Le titre m��me d��fie le r��sum�� : il s'agit d'une s��rie de sketches burlesques centr��s autour des deux figures types d'un jeune m��nage bourgeois, Adolphe et Caroline, assist��s de deux faire-valoir : deux coquettes plus parisiennes que nature, Mme de Fischtaminel et Mme Foullepointe, aux noms ��vocateurs. Les fragments donn��s comme un ensemble conservent les marques de leur passage par des journaux et des recueils en vogue. Ils forment pourtant une s��rie assez ��tincelante (faites pour le ...more

Ce livre est une vision assez négative de la vie conjugale vue par Balzac au XIXe Siècle. On suit la vie d'un couple de de bourgeois, Adolphe et Caroline, du début de leur union jusqu'à le livre est en lien très étroit avec un autre livre de Balzac : Physiologie du Mariage. Si Physiologie du Mariage est insupportable à lire, il en est autrement de Petites misères.

Ce livre se lit comme un roman. Il reste que c'est tout de même ce que pense l'auteur du mariage. Même si parfois je suis en accord av

If you are or have been married, or are considering marriage, you should read this book.

It is amusing, and sadly accurate. It helped me gain perspective of the male mind, it helped me understand why my spouse reacts quite consistently with "Adolfe", the typical husband, and unfortunately how much like "Caroline" I am.

I found myself apologizing to my husband, repetitively, as I completed this book, and I will strive to be less like Caroline going forward.

I also found a bit of solace in the fact t

This is nearly, but not quite as bad as The Physiology of Marriage. Part 1 purports to depict the travails of husbands at the hands of their wives, and Part 2 is the reverse. Balzac uses two characters I can best describe as composites, Caroline and Adolphe, to represent all that is irritating about marriage, but he succeeds only in irritating me.
Balzac wrote many splendid stories in La Comedie Humaine, but these two are awful and a sensible editor would have demanded that they not be included

Honoré de Balzac was a nineteenth-century French novelist and playwright. His magnum opus was a sequence of almost 100 novels and plays collectively entitled La Comédie humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the fall of Napoléon Bonaparte in 1815.

Due to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders o
