A melodramatic tale of how a vendetta between two Corsican families affects the love between the young couple whose parents started it. Very obviously inspired by Romeo and Juliet, it has lots of delightful little passages, where Balzac adds charming scenes that make the story worth reading.

Vendetta is a kind of Romeo and Juliet story set in the aftermath of the French Revolution The Piombos of Corsica killed a bunch of their rivals in revenge for the Portas This isn't a review; it's from my reading journal notes and it contains spoilers throughout.
The Piombos of Corsica killed a bunch of their rivals in revenge for the Portas killing their son, and then came to live in Paris under Napoleon's protection. All went well till the defeat at Waterloo and then they were in trouble. Ginevra, a beautiful and talented artist, is ostracised by the aristocratic girls in her painting class, but she doesn't notice the insult they paid her by moving her easel to a less favoured part of the studio - because from her new spot she notices a man hidden in a crevice.
He turns out to be a supporter of Napoleon, and of course he's handsome and she falls in love with him. Tres romantic, n'est-ce pas? Even before Ginevra's father meets Luiga, he's opposed to the marriage. He and his wife live a simple life, wholly bound up in each other and he doesn't want Ginevra to leave him. Quite why he was willing for her to marry suitors sent by Napoleon in the days when he had patronage and power isn't clear. When Papa and Ginevra do meet and he discovers that Luiga is the last-remaining Portas who'd somehow escaped the massacre in Corsica, he is resolute that they will never marry.
So Ginevra, as proud and stubborn as her father is, has to marry without his blessing. At first all goes well. They live comfortably though in debt, by selling Ginevra's copies of pictures and Luiga's handwriting. However fashions change, and their income dried up. Their baby starved to death, and so did Ginevra.https://semetomog.gq/map12.php

As fate or Balzac would have it, the old couple have a change of heart and decide to receive Luiga at last. He brings them a lock of Ginevra's hair, and then dies too.

It seems pretty clear that Balzac thought that this type of intergenerational vendetta was stupid and self-defeating! Dec 15, Paresh Khatri rated it liked it Shelves: owned , balzac-read. I was wandering about Boston about 4 years ago when I came across a book store called Brattles. As is my habit, I ventured in to see what I could pick up. I am always drawn by the elegant covers of the Penguin Black classics and the book that my eyes fell on was Lost Illusions by Balzac. In my ignorance, I had never heard of Balzac till then but decided to take a punt on this book.

I was completely mesmerised by the book which I almost read cover-to-cover on my long flight back to Melbourne. I f I was wandering about Boston about 4 years ago when I came across a book store called Brattles. I felt that I had discovered the French Dickens! In the ensuing period I did not read any more of his works but was always determined to read the complete Human Comedy.
I started to realise that dream about a month ago. Now, to the review ;-. The Vendetta is a great piece of work and Balzac employs his imagery to great effect here. It starts off intriguingly enough but does not let up as the story develops. Balzac's amazing descriptive language albeit translated makes one feel completely a part of the story. His description of Servin's attic is a wonderful example of this, from the furnishings in the room to the rays of light highlighting motes of dust in the air; the effect is outstanding. I was so completely engrossed as I read this that I almost missed my train stop!
No spoilers but this is a sublime piece of work from Balzac that should be essential reading for all his fans. The story is set at a at feminine painters camp where Servin is keeping a guy Luigi hidden because of political involvement. The young girl painter Ginevra Piombo while she lifts on her toes to uncover a green piece of clothing covering a window she finds a hole where she looks to see Luigi Porta.
After a while the other girls start to find out about their romance mostly because of another group at the camp with aristocratic Amelie in charge and leave the camp to shame Servin. After a while Gi The story is set at a at feminine painters camp where Servin is keeping a guy Luigi hidden because of political involvement. After a while Ginevra introduces the guy to her family where her father Bartolomeo Piombo finds Luigi to be the son of Porta family who killed his children and which he killed back all Portas - to find out one escaped.
Piombo family is under a vendetta with the Porta family and Napoleon and some other high court guys and a 'pair' stated they would not help Piombo in any circumstances - because of the vendetta. Now the father is really mad because her daughter chooses to marry Luigi Porta and become a Porta herself and because the family is Corsican which they don't break their tradition the daughter is expelled from the family. The drama ends when they have a son which is named Bartolomeo Porta and dies where Ginevra dies shorty after just when her father wanted to forgive her because of the poorness in which the young married couple lived for a several years.
I almost gave this a three it's kind of a 2. It's not excruatingly bad, but it is, however, the worst I've read so far of the Human Comedy and I hope that too many of the aren't as melodramatic and overly sentimental as this one. It reads like Dickens at his most treacly think the death of Little Nell but with extra corpses, sugar and violins.
The only way that I could take it even vagu I almost gave this a three it's kind of a 2. The only way that I could take it even vaguely seriously was by imagining it as a folk tale, a fairy story or a morality tale.

It's probably novellas like this that prompted Flaubert to say about Balzac: "What a man he would have been had he known how to write! This suspenseful short work opens with Bartolomeo di Piombo, a Corsican now in Paris, requesting an interview with Napoleon.
When Napoleon asks what has driven him from his native land, di Piombo tells him he had killed all the Porta family. After hearing the story, Napoleon states that he cannot take Piomba under his wing but that he can shut his eyes. Fifteen years have now passed and di This suspenseful short work opens with Bartolomeo di Piombo, a Corsican now in Paris, requesting an interview with Napoleon. Fifteen years have now passed and di Piombo's daughter, Ginevra, is nearly grown.
She is taking art lessons from Servin who is noted for teaching ladies art. Something of this vendetta will return to disrupt the lives of di Piombo and his family. Will the vendetta be ended or will it continue into the younger generations? Jun 07, Ross rated it really liked it. I have decided since then to read the "Comedie Humaine" in its entirety, however long that will take.
Balzac is always good for historical description, but this story has Bonaparte. It also features a cameo from Napoleon's brother, who was a high-ranking official in Napoleon's government a little piece of trivia I did not know. After that the novel picks up as it outlines the fate of a high and mighty political family that is affect My introduction to Balzac was "The Girl with the Golden Eyes".
After that the novel picks up as it outlines the fate of a high and mighty political family that is affected by the vendetta of the book's title. This blood-feud threatens to destroy everything in its path, eating away at a father, mother, and daughter from within.
The last few pages of the book are overpowering. This short novel is a story of love and revenge, dealing with the vendetta between two families of Corsican origin, set in early 19th century Paris just after the fall of Napoleon. The plot itself is a slight one, a kind of Romeo and Juliet romance, but the characterisation of proud Ginevra and her stubborn unforgiving father is superb.
The most memorable scene for me was the young couple's wedding, a poignant scene that is beautifully and sparingly described. This is an early piece of Balzac's This short novel is a story of love and revenge, dealing with the vendetta between two families of Corsican origin, set in early 19th century Paris just after the fall of Napoleon. This is an early piece of Balzac's writing, experimenting with the realistic approach that he used in later works from the Comedie Humaine but is a skilfully crafted little gem all the same.
The background is the miseries of ex-Bonapartists under the Restoration; it's strange, considering that Balzac described himself as a Royalist, that the Royalist characters in the novels I have read so far are all superficial or corrupt, and the heroes and heroines are all either Republicans or Bonapartists.
This is my first Balzac novel. I enjoyed it. This Romeo and Juliet set in Paris around Napoleons time is well written. The Corsican family arriving after a revenge killing in Paris with the scene set well. Then how the daughter falls in and love with a man who is a sworn enemy of her father.
She chooses her man over her family and then the remainder of the novella tracks there descent from happiness to poverty and ultimately death. Jun 29, Jeffrey Green rated it it was ok. The good thing about Balzac is that he doesn't offer a happy end, where all the right couples get married, and the villains get their due.
On the positive side, if you can read French, he'll never completely disappoint you. His writing is phenomenal. I plan to continue working my way through La Comedie Humaine, though I doubt that I'll live long enough to read the whole thing.
La Vendetta (novel) - Wikipedia
The best opening of any Balzac work I have read. And in some of the ensuing scenes, the most wooden melodrama of any Balzac work I have read, especially the scene where Ginevra confesses her love to her father who says she will die before him if she continues down this path. But there are numerous hints of the Balzac to come, most especially in the description of the relationship and backbiting between girls in Monsieur Servin. One of the early works from De Balzac which began his 'Human Comedy' series of publications.

A short novella that runs for just over eighty pages. I enjoyed this little read which is well written with interesting characters and a dark undercurrent of plot. I'm going to have to abandon this one - it's just not holding my interest enough. It's a classic story, to say the least, and the post-Napoleanic era is usually a great setting for intrigue and romance. But - I'm just not feeling this one. Jan 09, Scott Wilson rated it it was amazing.
I have read much of the Human Comedy and this is my favorite short story. It won't take long to read, and you will enjoy it. Aug 25, Steve Schoenbeck rated it liked it. Romeo and Juliet without the sublime poetry.
