Balzac, Honoré de
Discretion, required in a history of contemporaneous manners and morals, dictates this precautionary word. It is rather an ingenious contrivance to make the description of one town the frame for events which happened in another; and several times already in the course of the Comedy of Human Life, this means has been employed in spite of its disadvantages, which consist chiefly in making the frame of as much importance as the canvas.Balzac, Honoré de is the author of 'Deputy of Arcis', published 2007 under ISBN 9781594628412 and ISBN 1594628416.
