    La fabula de Honoré Balzac, “La obra maestra desconocida” apareció en 1831, en la revista Làrtiste, y fue subtitulada entre paréntesis como “ Cuento fantástico” a la manera de los relatos de E.T.A. Hoffmann. La quinta y última versión salió catorce años después, incluyéndose en el conjunto de cuentas Le provincial à Paris y su lectura nos asoma a la historia del anciano pintor Frenhofer y su lucha frente a lo inefable a través de la fantasía y el amor; amor a una mujer, a lo creado por las propias manos, o a ambas cosas a la vez. Sus obras tratan de proporcionar un contraste entre las actitudes propias del funcionalismo corriente de la sociedad, y aquellas otras actitudes que franquean las fronteras de lo establecido.

The book is translated from French into English by Clara Bell (1834-1927) et alii. It is dedicated to monsieur Charles Bernard du Grail. Summary: Published by Honoré de Balzac in the tempestuous year of 1830, the tale follows the undulating pathways of Sarrasine the sculptor's shocking journey to his coming of age. As one of the "fathers of realism" Balzac painted with his words a vivid portrait of life in the swirling salons of Europe at the end of the Bourbon monarchy, and we follow Sarrasine from France to Italy in search of both his métier and his muse. However it is also the story of La Zambinella, an Italian singer with whom Sarrasine falls madly and passionately in love. But that passion holds a secret which Sarrasine spies too late.

Honoré de Balzac (20 May 1799 – 18 August 1850) was a French novelist and playwright. His magnum opus was a sequence of short stories and novels collectively entitled La Comédie humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the 1815 fall of Napoleon Bonaparte.Due to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature. He is renowned for his multifaceted characters, who are morally ambiguous. His writing influenced many subsequent novelists such as Marcel Proust, Émile Zola, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Gustave Flaubert, Benito Pérez Galdós, Marie Corelli, Henry James, William Faulkner, Jack Kerouac, and Italo Calvino, and philosophers such as Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. Many of Balzac's works have been made into or have inspired films, and they are a continuing source of inspiration for writers, filmmakers and critics. An enthusiastic reader and independent thinker as a child, Balzac had trouble adapting to the teaching style of his grammar school. His willful nature caused trouble throughout his life and frustrated his ambitions to succeed in the world of business. When he finished school, Balzac was an apprentice in a law office, but he turned his back on the study of law after wearying of its inhumanity and banal routine. Before and during his career as a writer, he attempted to be a publisher, printer, businessman, critic, and politician; he failed in all of these efforts. La Comédie humaine reflects his real-life difficulties, and includes scenes from his own experience. Balzac suffered from health problems throughout his life, possibly due to his intense writing schedule. His relationship with his family was often strained by financial and personal difficulties, and he ended several friendships over critical reviews. In 1850 he married Ewelina Hanska, his longtime love; he died five months later. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
