    This is a perfect little story, a superb illustration of human nature at its best and at its most base This is not a review it is a summary of the story from my 2006 reading journal and there are spoilers throughout.A nun, forced from her abbey when it was sacked under The Terror see enpedia wiki Reign_of , makes her way to a pastrycook to buy wafers for the now forbidden mass On the way she realises she is being followed and her terror is palpable The pastrycook and his wife are moved momentari [...]

    A short story set in 1793 1794, suggested as 3 in the Human Comedy reading order I m using It was interesting and surprisingly short and concise for Balzac a well written, well crafted story that sets up its atmosphere of suspense and fear very well at the start, putting across the hard life of panic, mistrust and loneliness that aristocrats and relgious had to contend with during the years following the revolution It even has a pay off at the end, with a turnaround that s a little over wrought [...]

    This is the first I have read by the prolific Honore de Balzac, and what a delight and surprise It is a short story with every page built with excitement It is clear why Balzac is considered a great author Not only is the writing superb, but the story line is tightly written.

    A year ago I had read Old Man Goriot for a French history class, so when I came across this story I decided to pick it up and read I enjoyed this story quite a bit, especially since I had taken that history class If you don t know about what was going on in France at that time, I would suggest pulling up a timeline.

    This book is part of volume 17 of La Comedie Humaine as part of Sc nes de la vie politique.Sanson par Eug ne Lampsonius

    An Episode Under the Terror Un Episode sous la Terreur is considered one of Balzac s short masterpieces and has been favorably compared to the short stories of Guy de Maupassant It is set in 1793 and is full of mystery and suspense An excellent read.

    Not one of my favorites of his stories, but Balzac is Balzac I m yet to read a part of the Comedy that I didn t, in some way, enjoy.

    An excellent, if brief, description of what it must have been like to be living at the time of the French Revolution, when peoople were being persecuted for their religious beliefs.

    Oui, j aime a A short story really, and Balzac manages to evoke so much with this short work His endings always clinch it for meways a twist.
