Maïtre Cornelius by Honore de Balzac (1831, A Novela, A Component of the Human Comedy)

63 of 91

This novella is set in Tours in 1479.  It begins at Vespers on All Saints Day.   There are a few of these historical works included in The Human Comedy.  Maïtre Cornelius is to me formula Balzac 101.  If it took him more than three hours to write it I will be surprised.  It is a work for those reading through The Comedie Humaine.
