Les Petits Bourgeois

  • Publication type: Book
  • Author literary: Balzac (Honoré de)
  • Scientific editor: Picard (Raymond)
  • Abstract: In this little-known novel, Balzac wants to depict Tartuffe as he appears in the author’s own era. As an observer of the July Monarchy, he substitutes the political and social domains for the realm of piety. In addition to the rise of Théodose de La Peyrade, the story offers a study of the petite bourgeoisie of 1830.
