Sample text

The exasperation of the revolution reduces them all to 舠an equality of brute beasts, a same level of bloody turpitude; for the fanaticism of self-interest balanced the frenzy of the poor, aristocracy had the same fits of fury as the mob, and the cotton cap did not prove less hideous than the red cap舡 (pp. 377-378). This messy history is largely apprehended from a private perspective, that of Frȳdȳric. As a consequence, even though the narrator never intervenes, history is not described in an impartial way.

The dynamism of the former and the musing of the latter will prove equally useless. Deslauriers, the social climber with leftist leanings, petit-bourgeois manners, naive arrogance, and little money, will not live up to the 舠laurels舡 (lauriers) promised by his name; he will not rise 舠by a series of actions deducing themselves from one another舡 (p. 90), as occurs in the hyperactive universe of The Human Comedy; he will never launch one of those newspapers that, as Balzac in Lost Illusions and later Maupassant in Bel-Ami (1885) have shown, constitute a new and unstoppable force in bourgeois society.

In our text as in those, Marie is the object of the deepest, and the most forbidden, desire. When Frȳdȳric meets her on the boat on his way back to Madame Moreau舗s, she sits like a Madonna with child; in the epilogue, she kisses him 舠on the forehead, like a mother舡 (p. 474). No one may emulate her in that role: Whereas her maternity is sublime舒as when she sacrifices her first and only rendezvous with Frȳdȳric to look after her sick child, and the child survives舒Rosanette舗s unwanted maternity, which she uses to retain Frȳdȳric, is slightly grotesque, and her baby dies.
