Abstract:The faults between the layers of diegesis enable the informed reader to enter the Balzacian world, and to appreciate the instability of this supposedly monolithic text. This is Balzac's ultimate triumph: His artistic reproduction of early nineteenth-century France is not a still-life; rather it is, as Michel Butor observed, a mobile romanesque. It is as active, engaged readers that we set this work of art in motion.
