Vautrin, one of the first homosexual characters in French literature, has an eye for Rastignac, but also sees something of himself in the young student, both possessing a desire to make it to the top no matter the cost.

He resists Vautrin, though the criminal still sees the death of Victorine's brother through, establishing her as a very well-to-do figure in Parisian society. In The Red Inn Victorine is heiress to her father's fortune and she and her father are no longer estranged. In fact, she dotes on him -- and why not? He's the man to whom she owes her wealth and status. The father meanwhile still struggles with the death of his son.
The father, a very minor character in Goriot is here a central character. Part of the beauty of Balzac's Human Comedy is that we not only find different characters at different points of their lives, but they are viewed through different lenses, here respectable there a scoundrel, here a minor character and there a major character.
It is one of the most admirable qualities of the Human Comedy, and something 19th century and early 20th century writers like Marcel Proust most appreciated in Balzac. By changing the perspective through which we see various characters, bringing them back and sending them away again, we recognize them as having more depth than would be the case if we had them with us for pages and then never encountered them again.
It is for this reason that some of Balzac's characters feel -- as Proust posits -- more real than many real-life people. A Parisian banker, worldly because his occupation leads him to do business with people in other corners of the world globalization in 19th century literature , is having a dinner party at which he entertains, among other guests "a stout worthy German, a man of taste and erudition, above all a man of pipes. Before the German begins his tale the narrator's attention is seized by a strange, enigmatic man, a man who becomes increasingly agitated to no one's notice but the narrator's as the German's story unfolds.
Not unlike "Sarrasine" again, the reader is drawn in to learn more about this mysterious character. We learn about him both through the narrator's observations and the German's story about murder and ill-gotten fortunes. Drawing on the true story of a former army surgeon whose friend had been wrongly executed, with the drama of the story-within-the-story developing at a place called "L'auberge rouge" -- the setting of various murders possibly including rape and cannibalism, perpetrated by the owners and one of their employees , which was in the headlines at the end of -- Balzac used current events to add to the realism of his tale.

Though his Red Inn in this story was set in Germany, just the name The Red Inn was sure to inspire fear and intrigue in his audience. It is not out of a desire to shock that I disparage a cinema which receives such high praise elsewhere. Feeds: Posts Comments.
Le secret de lauberge rouge (Histoire) (French Edition)
Edit Storyline A group of travelers, including a monk, stay in a lonely inn in the mountains. You are commenting using your Google account. However, the naughty Zazie manages to escape and go on an adventure around Paris, alone! There is no mention in the film of what becomes of Jacques after Gertrude 's death.
This story has elements of Poe though pre-Poe , to be certain, but the themes are entirely Balzacian. As in Sarrasine and Goriot , it matters not from where a fortune comes from so long as one is rich. It is the way that Balzac and many others saw the Paris of that day.
And if one were to tweak it, it could very well be the story of 21st century America or any other major city. Once it's been made, the means of acquiring one's fortune matter not.
Young and relatively inexperienced like Balzac's Rastignac, the narrator of this story is a man of virtue yet to be corrupted by the corrupt society in which he finds himself. When he falls in love with Victorine he must decide whether or not he wants the family's blood money on his hands. His contemporaries who he turns to for advice are not so concerned with ethics as the narrator, and all that glitters in their eyes is gold.
Beautifully Written Tale A young man finds himself in love with a young woman whose father, he is determined to believe, has evil in his heart. At a dinner party, a tale is told of two young men who are the best of friends. They stay at The Red Inn one night. While dining together at the inn, a rich merchant joins them. During the night the unthinkable happens. And many years later, the man in love with the woman finds himself facing a moral dilemma. One of those boring stories. This is one of those well-plotted short stories that make me enjoy Balzac's La Comedie Humaine so much.
It's another story-within-a-story, told as they so often are in the afterglow of a fine dinner as an amusing anecdote to frighten the ladies. This time the original story-teller is a German merchant called Hermann but his tale is retold by the narrator, who makes occasional snide remarks about the German's style and accuracy.
Despite what he says in his opening remarks, the Frenchman certain This is one of those well-plotted short stories that make me enjoy Balzac's La Comedie Humaine so much. Despite what he says in his opening remarks, the Frenchman certainly doesn't trust Germans not if his narky remarks are anything to go by: He was the type of the sons of that pure and noble Germany, so fertile in honorable natures, whose peaceful manners and morals have never been lost, even after seven invasions. Kindle location 6 His story is about two young French doctors who in during the Republic serve as medicos in the war rather than as conscripts in the army.

They make their way to The Red Inn where overcrowding necessitates that they share their meal and lodging with a stranger, a German factory owner called Walhenfer. Later on when he's had too much to drink, Walhenfer reveals to these young men whom he trusts because of their honest faces, that he has brought a great deal of money with him: , francs in gold and diamonds!
