  1. Did Balzac really write this beautiful poem? Did you translate it from the French? It seems written in the English language. Balzac was a French novelist – I’ve never heard of his poetry. Please tell me the story – this poem is lovely! Thanks, Miranda

    1. Miranda! Great question…the poem was included in the pages of the Honore de Balzac novel Eugénie Grandet. I read the English translation and it is a woeful tale of bourgeois hypocrisy.
